Ravine Trail EntranceHumphrey at Ravine TrailThe Ravine Trail has been improved. The entrance has been moved to a more pedestrian-safe location on Joshuatown Road, across the street from the parking lot. The new section of the red trail combined with the new yellow trail creates a moderately easy loop. A new blue trail off the yellow trail offers a  moderately easy 0.6 mile round-trip to a breathtaking overlook. The remaining red trail continues on it’s awesome but challenging route to Mitchell Hill Road. It has been cleared of obstruction and re-blazed. Let us know what you think. For an updated Trail Map and brochure. Photos by Wendolyn Hill: Left: Volunteer Humphrey Tyler.
