Probably biggest challenge for less mobile or adventure for others, down and up a ravine with stairs cut into the hill side that was a dry crossing as water seemed to fall into a hole, otherwise for the most part, trail is very little climbing.

Possibly the only slight water crossing if a good bit of rain from the looks of it.

One of three benches along trail, the only little foot bridge over a ravine ahead, just right is road with thin buffer of trees and for the most part the trail is like this except by the river a few more roots to watch for.

View from bench overlooking Edisto River below is a steep embankment. Trail back to park is left mostly following the river the rest of way back.

Besides birds and other wildlife, there are several different mushrooms seen along the trail, this being one of the more colorful ones at the time, although best seen and not touched.

Old Loop Trail, is fairly easy to walk but not everyone will find it as exciting as River Bluff Trail. This trail is more for bird watchers and getting away from the busier part of the State Park.
