Trail and campsite closures

The park is open, but there are many trail closures due to hurricane damage. This includes the stairs leading down to the Raven Rock Cliff. Campsites are closed too. The East Loop Bridle Trail is closed due to trail construction. Please check at the visitor center for routes. Please do not cross barricades or danger tape. 

Mountain Laurel Loop Trail- Bike/Hike

The Mountain Laurel Loop Trail starts at the Moccasin Branch Road access. This trail is a newly constructed, natural surface, beginner level mountain bicycle trail built to accommodate hand cycles.

This very scenic trail with winding turns and gentle slopes traverses through diverse ecosystems with stands of pine and hardwood timber. Mountain laurel occupies much of the understory along the trail as it travels across the contours of the north facing slopes, while the southern exposures provide more open forests for longer range views across the landscape.
