Raven Rock Loop Trail

The park's namesake trail is very popular for its iconic features, such as Raven Rock and the Overlook. Following along Little Creek, you will wind through the woods and find your way to a large staircase that descends to the Rock. Once under the Rock, take a moment to soak in the sights and sounds of the riverbed on the large fallen boulders. At the Overlook, bald eagles are commonly seen fishing along the river. The Overlook is also one of the best spots to view a sunset in the park.
