Ridgeline Trail: Two hours to hike this 4.5-mile trail. It is blazed in yellow and begins at the forest edge off of the front parking lot behind Cabin #1. The trail wanders through expansive oak-hickory forests, shady hemlock ravines and around numerous vernal wetlands. The terrain is hilly, and in one section where the trail courses over a rock ledge, additional care should be taken. This trail begins and ends along with the red blazed Scenic Gorge trail behind Cabin #20. Follow PEEC’s campus road back to the main building. This hike wll take about 2 hours.
Bring 2 liters of water and a snack.
