We hiked about 6 miles today at Raven Rock State Park. We've been here before, but there were trails we had not hiked!
This time we hiked to the actual namesake - Raven Rock! Luckily, it was very shady so the temp was bearable.
The trail down to the river was steep - the last part was this stairway.
Kind of hard to get a good photo of a big rock....
The rocky hillside almost directly adjoined the tannic water of the Cape Fear River.
Loved hiking over this tree-root system. See all the above-ground roots sprawling out over the rockbed?
Walking along the cliff-face.
And finally, we hiked up to the "Overlook" - which really was a pretty nice view considering how flat the area is elsewhere. A lovely viewpoint!
