Bloody Rock Trail is a 3 mile easy trail with a starting elevation of 2,280 feet. The trailhead is located in the Eel River area adjacent to Road 20N01 within the State Game Refuge. This is a one-way trail that runs through glades and passes near historic Bloody Rock before entering a wooded area. The trail ends at the Eel River. There are several backpack camps along the Eel River.
Following the murder of an early settler in Gravelly Valley, the massacre of 65 Native American men in the Cabbage Patch-Bloody Rock area gave rise to the outcrop's name.
