“A trail with two entirely different feels--wide trails through open an meadow and narrow track through a ravine”— Paul Gray
The trail follows the fence line northeast crossing the Overlook Trail again at the northwest gate, then follows the fence to the northeast gate, where it exits the meadow and drops down into the Fiddlers Creek Ravine. Within the fenced area the trail is a mowed road-sized path. Once out of the area, it becomes a narrow track. Almost immediately after reaching the bottom of the ravine, the Fiddlers Creek Preserve South Bank Trail (yellow blazes) branches off and crosses the creek via a rock crossing. The Ravine Trail continues southwest through the creek's flood plain. Roughly a quarter mile past the South Bank Trail, the Ravine Trail make a 180 degree loop doubling back on itself as it climbs up out of the ravine. The trail ends near the southeast meadow gate connecting to the Overlook Trail.
The meadow portion of this trail is an extremely easy hike. The ravine portion a more typical trail through open woods. The trail makes for an enjoyable short hike.
