Medoc Mountain State Park – Hollister, NC

Time for a little R&R, we’ve started exploring some of the local state parks here in North Carolina. Medoc Mountain is not really a mountain at all; its highest point reaches an elevation of only 325 feet above sea level. It is, rather, the core of what was once a mighty range of mountains - Medoc Mountain is what remains after millions of years of erosion. The eroded peaks were formed by volcanic action during the Paleozoic Age, about 350 million years ago.

Medoc Mountain has 12 miles of hiking trails; we did about 11 of them. This is one we explored along Fishing Creek.

Jordyn's checking to see how wet the water is. :)
