South Mountains State Park: River Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This route combines three trails—the River Trail, Raven Rock Trail, and Little River Trail—to create a loop in South Mountains State Park. The route starts on the River Trail and follows along the picturesque bank of the Jacob Fork River. Plenty of picnic areas and inspiringly restful spots are along the way. From here the trail ascends some moderate elevation on the Raven Rock Trail, offering views of the surrounding mountains, and descends on the Little River Trail to the parking lot where you started. The hike offers a bit of challenge interspersed with beautiful forest and wonderful riverside walking."
