This hike features a moderate uphill climb that passes through different stages of forest succession, changing from young pine forests in the low areas to mature mixed hardwood on the bluffs by Little River. A loop trail at the end takes you along the river before heading back. Little River Regional Park is a popular destination for fam- ily outings, with playgrounds, gardens, a paved nature walk, a short birding trail, and ample picnic facilities. The Ridge Trail provides a more adventurous experience, striking out for the far north of the park. The lower areas of the park were formerly cleared, so as you make your way up the Ridge Trail, you’ll see forest succession in action.
