Robins Roost and Crows Nest make a nice loop trail. Both trails are about 0.5 miles in length with each connector being approximately the same making this a nice 2-mile hike. Upon entering Robins Roost the hiker with travel about half-mile and turn left on River Bank Trail which offers a panoramic view of the Dan River. Follow River Bank another half-mile and turn left onto Crows Nest for another half-mile walk through a lovely hardwood forest. Crows Nest comes out on the main park road where the hiker will walk along the park road for the final half-mile in order to reach the trailhead for Robbins Roost, which at this point completes the loop.
