I love this place. I have many fond memories from when I was a child and teenager of hiking and having picnics at Raven Run. I miss living in the country and this place is a convenient 10-15 minutes out of town...a sanctuary not only for the animals, but for those wanting to escape the city sights, noise, and smells...a great place to spend the day. Although information on this trail shows it to be only 3.9 miles, there are several historical loops and connector trails that overlap and a person could easily spend a whole day going slowly and resting from time to time to take it all in. The new nature center has better displays and information.

Beautiful and well-maintained trails. Great view from the Overlook - nice view of the river and we saw a family of deer drinking below. Good hike for both kids and adults.

Great for hiking with some moderate trails. All year round is great expect some rainy days where red trails get a bit muddy at certain points. No pets allowed :-(

Nice covered trails and view of the Ohio River. We took our three kids (ages 3, 6, & 11) and the older ones handled the 4 miles very well. We had to carry the 3 yo most of the way. Although there were a lot of people there, the trails weren't crowded. We'll go back again.

Nice trail, very busy though! If you are looking for quiet this is not the place. Lots of teenagers whooping and yelling in the woods. Other than that it was nice, there is a beautiful overlook on the KY river.

I do have to add that the trails close early. There are other activities on certain dates, stargazing and Halloween trail among them.

Good clean trails, even a paved handicap trail for those in a wheelchair
