The Raven Rock trail is part of a small network of hiking trails in the Keowee Toxaway State Park in upstate South Carolina. This trail is a loop trail that branches off from the Natural Bridge loop trail, in the same area. Together, the Natural Bridge and Raven Rock trails form a 4.1-mile loop. The trailhead for these two trails is just off the visitor's center for the park, just off of Hwy. 11, between Hwy. 130 and U.S. 178.

The East Fork Trail is part of the South Carolina Foothills Trail, an 80-mile trail stretching from Oconee State Park to Table Rock State Park. This section of the trail begins about 20 miles north of Walhalla and follows the East Fork of the Chattooga River. The trail itself is gorgeous, offering views of lush fields of ferns, rushing rapids, and amazing rock faces.
