Hike to Raven Rock Falls

0.5 Miles Total - Out-and-Back Trail

Originally added by Paris Robinson

Short and easy to hike to Raven Rock Falls.

If you want to see a great waterfall without hiking all day, this is the perfect trail for you. 

Getting there - The trailhead is about 2 miles from the intersection of Cold Mountain and Panther Ridge Road (exact coordinates: 35.1594, -82.9801). There is a small grassy pull out where you can park your car. Once you park, walk across the street and start walking downhill. The trailhead will be on your right. It can be a bit tricky to spot so keep your eye out. 

The trail itself is fairly easy. You will pass a few small creeks, and walk under a waterfall as you descend to the base of Raven Rock. Be careful as the rocks can be slippery.
