The Ravine Trail is a 2.8-mile trail that climbs into the Rattlesnake National Recreation Area from Grant Creek. Switchbacks weave up the mountain through ponderosa pine and Douglas fir, making the climb relatively easy. The trail ends at a junction with the Sawmill Trail in the Rattlesnake Trail System. The Ravine Trail is the shortest route to Stuart Peak and can be hiked as a shuttle, returning through Spring Gulch, Curry Gulch, or Sawmill Gulch (Hikes 5–8). This hike leads to an overlook on a knoll by rock outcroppings, then returns along the same route. The overlook offers glimpses of the Snowbowl Ski Area.
