It was a VERY well labeled trail. I don't believe it was 4 miles for the red trail I did with a friend. It was a great day for a walk though. Multiple benches on the trail for those who need a break. Overall it was a great time.

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.
