This was a good hike. It had some hills in it, and some spots were worn (would be muddy after rain) from horses. The trail was well-marked; however, make sure that if you want to do this loop via Whitestone Spring, that you take UPPER Rocky Ridge rather than LOWER where they split! The spring was cool (in both ways ;) and right near it, the creek runs through a sluice between rocks, making wonderful sounds. There's not an "official" state park entrance on Whitestone Road; look for the PVC-covered chain gate just north of Cowford Bridge Rd.

Great trail, good trail to find some running cedar which is used as Christmas decorations, there are a couple of creek crossings on fallen trees, test your balance. There is a lower Rocky Ridge trail, unfortunately it is currently closed due some repair work needed on a bridge.
