This is by far my favorite trail that's close to home for me!!
great hike an a awesome view at the end
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 messes it 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.
