Description

Ridley Park is a beautiful park with a variety of trails to follow. This trail is clearly marked with white blazes, and will allow you to enjoy rolling hills and some time near a beautiful creek.

Follow the singletrack dirt path through rolling wooded hills. The path often passes by large boulders, creeks, and other interesting features to keep you interested. This path does have a number of road crossings, so you don't always get a full immersion in nature, but some of them have been mitigated by small overpasses or other features that make them feel safe.

The several water crossings have well-maintained bridges to keep hikers high and dry.
