on Raven Rock Trail

7 days ago

Ravens Rock is a better overlook than the Main Overlook, in my opinion. Be very careful, especially with children, as there are no railings at the overlook. The power lines at the end kind of mess is up, but it's still beautiful....The trail itself is like a gravel road near the beginning but it improves the further you go. Lots of nice scenery and little side trails along the way. It's family/pet friendly, but you must have decent feet/stability as it is very rocky in places. This is my favorite trail at Coopers Rock S.P.

I grew up here as a kid and this was my favorite place to go. It is a great hike to go have lunch on the rock. There are also a few geocaches along the trail.

Great hike to a super scenic but much less touristy overlook. The trail / access road is a little rocky and there is running water for most of it after a rain but it is really worth it.

Trail was boring for about the first half then got a little better. Worth it for the view!

Great trail! Can get muddy if it's rained within a couple of days. there are plenty of nice detours to take while walking the trail.

A bit rocky initially. Wonderful tall rock outcroppings, and a pleasant view at Raven Rock. I liked parking at the front, taking Scott Run (which is one of my favorite trails in the park), over the McCollum Trail, hiking out to Raven Rock, and then taking the easy roadside trail back into the front parking lot. It made a nice ~~ 7 mile loop.

Love this trail! A little rocky @ the beginning but the view at the end is worth it all! There's a great place at the end of the trail to hang Eno Hammocks & chill! Be sure to take a camera!

Beautiful hike to a great overlook. I went on Memorial Day weekend (Sunday) early in the morning. The trails are marked well, there is also trail heads and mi markers along some of the way. Easy hike along the roadside trail up to the overlook. Print off the map included on All Trails as it was a great guide to take some of the other trails in the park. Go early and sit and enjoy the view from the rocks!

Decent hike
