If Erie County Parks and Recreation decided to choose a signature hike—a trail that provided the most unusual and gratifying outdoor experience in the area—the Eternal Flame Trail at Chestnut Ridge Park might qualify. In just 0.75 of a mile, this hike descends through a tranquil hardwood forest into a deep ravine sliced out of the rock by Shale Creek, then crisscrosses the creek itself on whatever rocks and logs may have landed here during the area’s legendary storms.
