The Bridle Trails are currently open but with West Loop re-route during parking lot expansion. Please read below:
Construction has begun on the Bridle Trail Parking Area expansion. Portions of the West Loop near River Road have been closed. The trail has been re-routed to complete the loop on the west side of Avent’s Creek using the trailhead opposite the vault toilet. Heavy machinery and tree felling equipment will be in use during this time. The exit road from the parking lot will be closed and the number of available parking spaces may be reduced temporarily for safety. Traffic will enter and exit on the same driveway. Please plan your visit accordingly during peak use periods. Do not ride on portions of the trail or parking lot that are marked as closed. This project is expected to be completed by January 4, 2014.
Raven Rock State Park has created a list serve for updates on the East and West Loop Bridle Trails. These updates will only be sent when the trail status changes. If you are interested in receiving emails of bridle trail status changes please call the park office and leave your preferred email address at 910-893-4888 extension 107 or email email@example.com
