Very nice trails, but some are still closed due to hurricane damage. Will be doing it again soon.

Good trail for running easy climbs and descents. Adding it to the Campbell Loop Trail and all the off-shoot trails makes for a fun 10ish miles of trail running.

My husband and I recently did this hike for the first time and we enjoyed the beautiful view at the overlook. Parts of the trail were closed due to hurricane Matthew but we look forward to returning to see the parts that were closed.

A nice easy hike with a canopy view and river-side area. I went here on my 20th birthday with a couple of friends - good times!

I went to do a reconnaissance on a camp site I will be at later this month. I walked the Raven Rock loop minus actually going down th raven rock. I did add on a bit by going down to the canoe camp sites and back again to resume the RR loop.

The trails are about a meter wide and there's several to choose from. It's a mix of dirt, sand, mud, and tree roots with varying elevation. The view at the overlook is decent. Brought my dog and he had a blast! Not very difficult, but overall good fun.

Great trail! Lots of cool scenery. The bottom of the rock was really cool. Some good elevation changes but moderate enough that it wasn't too much for my kids.
