Oregon Ridge Loggers Loop

Oregon Ridge: Loggers Loop Professional Review and Guide

"This hike is one of several trails at Oregon Ridge Nature Center. Follow a red-blazed path on natural surface through a forest of old logging trails, including a challenging ascent. It’s a peaceful hike with a pond, a beach and swimming area, and a nature center topped off with a nice overlook of Hunt Valley.

You’ll feel like you are a world away when you step on the trails at Oregon Ridge Park. The land where the Oregon Ridge Nature Center now sits was an iron ore and marble mining operation during the mid-nineteenth century. The forest that once stood here during this time was clear-cut and sold for firewood. What you see now is a second-growth forest. The trails you see today were once logging roads used to drag out the trees after they were cut. The center was built in 1963 and houses displays on the history, wildlife, and environment of the park. It also has a library and gift shop."
