Near 172 Barbourtown Road, Canton
Quick story: Half a year ago a reader commented on the main page for Rocks on this site, “Drum Rock near the north end of Barbertown Road in Canton Center. Not an animal, but really cool.”
Interested, I Googled Barbertown Road in Canton. Nothing. I tried all the surrounding towns as well. Nothing. I filed it away in my brain and then one day when I knew I’d be in Canton’s wilds, I tried looking for other spellings of Barbertown. Bam! Nailed it. Barbourtown Road.
It’s a pretty crazy woodland road – one that I love. And yup, there’s a rock painted like a drum for some reason along it. This picture is head-on – so it looks kind of weird. You will never, ever find yourself passing Drum Rock by accident (unless you are hiking Canton Land Conservation Trust trails) so enjoy this picture… It might be the only time you see it.
I’d love to know why this exists.
