    Sounds like I may plan for 2 hours and hope that we do it quicker. This does let me know that I will need to have lunch on the trail for my "critters" though. Thanks for the help.

    I want to say that it was roughly 1 mile from the bridge at Burrells Ford where we parked to the beach campsite. The trail bridge over the East Fork was just a quarter mile or so past that. I think that would put Ellicott Rock about 1-1.5 miles further down the trail from the bridge over the East Fork. Does that sound right?

    Now far ahead the Road has gone,
    And I must follow, if I can.
    Pursuing it with eager feet
    Until it joins some larger way
    Where many paths and errands meet.
    And whither then? I cannot say."

    I'm almost sure we made from the bridge to the rock in 45 minutes. That would be about right.

    I know ther are also 2 - 3 waterfalls nearby. Does the trail from the general camping ara to Ellicot's rock go near any water falls?

    well the camping area is right next to the bridge which if you take a right has some pretty nice waterfalls not a big one like the one right when you get on the trail though

    You will pass Spoonauger Falls on the way in. It's 0.1 mile off the trail...straight up.
    Kings Creek Falls is probably the nicest one close by. It's one mile from the Burrell's Ford Campground parking lot. The trail starts in the northeastern corner of the lot.

    Pictures of both are in the original posting.

    Its been years since I have been to Burrels Ford. I looked at your map in the first post. It looks like both falls are the opposite direction from the camp site than Ellicot's rock.
    Estimate to Ellicots rock was 1 hour maybe 2 one way.
    Time back to the water falls is about 45 minutes to an hour one way????
    Thanks

    Spoonauger Falls is a small detour from the main trail in the same direction as the campsite and Ellicott Rock. You can easily hit it on the way in to the campsite. Kings Creek Falls is in the other direction about 1-1.5 miles, but it is also more impressive.
