There is a full blockage on Little Fishing Creek at the mouth of the Bear Swamp Creek. The exact location is: 36.25784, -77.88398 or approximately 1,000 feet downstream from Medoc State Park Road. Portaging around the blockage will be very difficult to almost impossible. Paddlers are encouraged to carry their canoes or kayaks over the foot bridge from the Discovery Loop to the Dam Site Loop and enter the creek there. Park staff may be able to assist with transporting canoes or kayaks to this location if arrangements are made prior to arriving at the park. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.Posted on: Thursday, August 17, 2017 - 8:20pm
Winding along creeks, ridges, and through the forests, the trails are the best way to appreciate the beauty and diversity of Medoc Mountain. Seven trails wander through a variety of terrain and provide more than 10 miles of hiking. Most of the trails are easy or moderate in difficulty, and trail scenery includes an artesian well, granite outcroppings and miniature rapids.
Bridle Trails: For those who prefer horseback, approximately 10 miles of bridle trails travel through rolling terrain and follow a portion of beautiful Little Fishing Creek. Bridle trailhead parking is available just off Medoc Mountain Road. All visitors with horses must be able to provide proof of a negative equine infectious anemia (Coggins) test while visiting North Carolina State Parks.
