Twenty years ago, when I was a county planner in Washington County, Cottage Grove Ravine Regional Park was one of my projects for developing the area’s recreational potential. At that time the county didn’t own as much land as it does now, so development was limited to the overlook parking area and the picnic area at the western edge of the lake. Now, two decades later, I am happy to report that additional land means additional areas for trail development— and what a network of trails it is!
