Raven Ridge stretches from Lewis Creek south along a scenic ridge on the boundary of Charlotte and Hinesburg to a large wetland complex in Monkton. The land is a rocky forest refuge for a variety of wildlife including the federally endangered Indiana bat. Bobcats thrive on the ridge's rock outcroppings and ravens nest on the cliff ledges. Lewis Creek and surrounding wetlands provide a diverse ecosystem for aquatic species. Wildflowers are abundant here in spring.
