Raven Rock State Park

Trail and campsite closures

After much work following Hurricane Florence, most of Raven Rock's trails are back open! The Canoe Camps and Group Camps will remain closed for the foreseeable future. The East Bridle Loop, at Avent's Creek Access Area is currently closed to all visitors due to construction on the trail. 

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.
