nice hike, take white trail off red to the old mill site for a icy cold dip in the creek!

The most pleasant hike you can find near Lexington. Great terrain, staff, and diverse trail options.

Raven Run is a fantastic place! They have fantastic hours. Saw a wide variety of wild animals, wildflowers, and wild places. The staff is fantastic and very knowledgeable! Not to mention the historic site, the Prather House. There's so much more to say. This should really be a national park. Fantastic summer hours, 9-8. For all you people who disagree with the no dogs rule, the fact that dogs are not allowed helps protect the wildlife and soil. If they did allow dogs, you would see no wildlife because dogs are unnatural predators in this area. I would rate this 10 stars if I could. All in all, great city park, great future national park.

I've been going to Raven Run since I was a kid. Love this place because of the creek and all the wildlife. It's also really close; only 10-15 minute drive. We take my kids often and they enjoy it too. They have more blackberries than anyplace I've been. Pick the right time of year and you can hit the jackpot.

Fun and well-travelled moderate trails.

Always love coming here, so peaceful. some trails on the sactury side are easy and some or a bit tricky. As long as you pay attention and pace yourself just taking in everything around you is amazing.

Nice trail close to the city. Closes early. Nature center has some neat fossils and things.
