Ravine Trail

The Ravine Trail leaves the ravine to the left.

How about celebrating the autumnal equinox with an 8-mile, more or less, hike stringing together nine different trails plus a quarter-mile on paved roads? We’ll name this hike for the newest trail it takes, Buxton Ravine, but it begins in Hopkins Forest, climbs to the Taconic Crest, descends on the historic RRR Brooks Trail to the Knob to the Ravine.
