Raven Run Silver Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This wooded walk outside Lexington goes to a fine overlook above the Kentucky River before descending into a scenic creek gorge."
--Michael H. Brown, Revised by Carrie L. Stambaugh, Hiking Kentucky (Falcon Guides).
There is a secret about Raven Run; follow the creek to the river but beware this is not a loop.
If you are into running, don't even bother going here. The place has bank hours, meaning I took off work early to go down for a nice run at around 4 p.m. and some hippie working there told me i need to sign in -- just incase a bear eats me -- and the park closes in 13 minutes. The guy couldn't just say it was about to close, he had to drop a 13-minute bomb in me. Anyway, I've run the loops and they are fun and challenging at times, but head there when it rains because if you go on a nice day and in the 45-minute window it is open, too many people will be on the trail.
