This video was passed on to us and features the very first conservation easement held by the Captina Conservancy. At just over 1000 acres, perhaps this video will help explain why the landowners wanted it protected. You can learn more about the people behind saving Raven Rocks here: http://www.raven-rocks.org/.
Raven Rocks is located in southern Belmont County. It is privately owned, but the public is invited and encouraged to explore this hidden feature that reveals itself in a big way as soon as you take the path into the woods and head down the stairs.
As a gentle reminder, this place is protected by a conservation easement. It is meant to be enjoyed forever, not abused and destroyed by humans. Stairs have been constructed to allow for easier access and to prevent slope erosion by visitors, but there are no rails for the steep edges. Please, spend some time here, but remember the 7 Principles of Leave No Trace so others can experience having their breath taken away as well.
