Had a great time walking/hiking to the Raven Rock. You will need to climb down and up stairs to get to the rock. The park is dog friendly.

Very nice 5.5 mile loop hike (with extension to the rapids) that took us about 2:45. The trail is well finished, but does have areas with roots. Easily walkable in light hikers, but we wore boots to protect ankles. The hike would be tougher in...More
