Ravenna Park/ Cowen Park Professional Review and Guide
"Turn left on the pathway and continue slightly uphill toward an open meadow. To the right are restrooms and a trail marker leading to steps down to the forested pathway below. Turn left at the bottom of the steps and run adjacent to Ravenna Creek, then cross at one of the footbridges, returning on the other side of the creek. Make a wide loop on the outer perimeter of the park, including a section on the sidewalk, and return to the start point for a short loop, or continue on the trail to add mileage.
You’ll enjoy an urban adventure on a mixture of singletrack trail, wide pathways, steps, and footbridges crossing over the creek on this route. For postrun drinks or snacks, stop by Seven Coffee Roasters and Market, 2007 NE Ravenna Boulevard; or at the nearby Herkimer Coffee, 5611 University Way NE; or at Vegan Haven, 5270 University Way NE."
