Once inhabited by the Cherokee tribe this state park is named for the large granite rock that juts out of the valley. There are many stories behind how the rock was named Caesars Head but no one can deny that it is a unique formation, the beginnings of which date back over 400 million years ago. You have your choice of hikes. One is on the four-mile loop Raven Cliff Falls Trail. Another is a 6.6-mile round trip trail that includes a suspension bridge and crosses above Raven Cliff Falls. Hours depend on the season, but the park closes one hour before dark, year round. The visitor center is open 10-5 Monday through Thursday and 9-5 Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Admission is $3 for adults.
