Route Description for Raven Trail
The Raven Trail is a relaxed walking loop that makes use of a horseback riding park. The loop is easy and laidback and the scenery is pleasant. This trail is heavily trafficked by equestrians, so remember the basics of hiking near horses: don’t come up fast from behind, allow horses the right of way, and announce yourself beforehand to the rider whether coming from in front or behind. If you’re unsure of how to pass a horse, just ask the rider. Remember to keep dogs on leash on this trail.
The loop is best done clockwise if you want to descend the steepest portion of the trail instead of climbing it at the end, although it’s not very steep. Go left at the trailhead and look for the raven signage. The loop mostly sticks to the perimeter of the park before cutting back through to the trailhead. A GPS track can help you get back if needed. If you’d like a longer loop through this park, try the Coyote Loop.
