Raven Rock Nature Walk
March 20 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Raven Rock State Park is a great spot to enjoy a Piedmont hardwood forest and view the Cape Fear River from Raven Rock, a 150 foot high geologic feature for which the park was named. The park has a diverse topography, including high bluffs and low floodplains along the Cape Fear River. We’ll hike the Raven Rock Loop Trail which includes a wooden staircase to the base of Raven Rock. The trail is 2.6 miles long with varying slopes, but we have allowed ample time to enjoy the scenery along the way, including the geologic features and wildlife. Our guide, Jerry Reynolds, is Head of Outreach for the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences and has led walks in natural areas across the state for over 40 years. (Yes, he’s been around a while!)
This NCWF Walk on the Wild Side event is free and open to the public, but pre-registration is required due to limited availability and parking.
