Raven Rock State Park is about an hour south of the Triangle. It sits along the banks of the Cape Fear River* where piedmont gives way to coastal plain. Just like other NC State Park “every single trail” routes (see UmsteadEno RiverMorrow MountainMedoc Mountain, Pilot Mountain), the idea here is to complete all of the following official park trails in a single, non-stop effort:

  • Advanced Loop
  • American Beech
  • Beginner Loop
  • Campbell Creek Loop
  • Campground**
  • East Loop Bridle
  • Fish Traps
  • Intermediate Loop
  • Lanier Falls
  • Little Creek Loop
  • Longleaf Loop
  • Northington Ferry
  • Raven Rock Loop
  • West Loop Bridle

*take caution when attempting to cross river, monitor USGS conditions

**not shown on park map, but is an official trail linking visitor center and bike trails
