Raven Rock Trail

Named for Raven Rock, a cliff on the opposing side of the river.


Description:

The trail is actually an old roadbed that has been closed, though it is still used occasionally. It sidles up to Daniel Creek, then turns to a campsite, complete with a firepit.

The hike ends in an area with small sandy beaches, vantage points for watching rafters, and, of course, a beautiful view of Raven Rock.

Unless you own a Jeep, pickup, or other four-wheel-drive vehicle, you should plan to walk the extra easy mile on the dirt road leading up to the trail.

Raven Rock Trail Report:

“Unless you own a Jeep, pickup, or other four-wheel-drive vehicle, you should plan to walk the extra easy mile on the dirt road leading up to the trail.”

The dirt road leading to the trail is closed off. It must be hiked in.

Also, the path is very narrow in places. I would not rate this trail as kid friendly. It would be too dangerous.

Be prepared for several guided raft tours to come along throughout the day.

It is a beautiful sight to see. Hope this information can help someone!

Raven Rock Trail Report:

This was a very short hike for such a huge payoff. The trail was naturally downhill to the river, and uphill on the way back. The uphill may be a bit difficult for people who aren’t used to hiking, but I would rate it moderate. You could make a day of this trail with a picnic, swimming, and watching the boats go by. I had read that there would be trash, but we saw virtually nothing. Either things have changed since that review or there was community service very recently.
