The Ravine Trail passes through a wonderful hemlock and spruce plantation. As the trail loops around, it crosses a stream in 3 places with native rock step crossings. It is a primitive trail with a native tread and is steep in some places. The Ravine Trail connects with the Interloken Trail at Burnt Hill Road. Because of the steep slopes along the ravine, you must camp at least 200 feet from the trail. Please practice Leave No Trace ethics, such as carry out what you carry in.
