Hemlock ravine is a great place to go for a hike and walk your dog. The trails are very well groomed. you are walking through the middle of a giant forest which makes it so beautiful and peaceful. One of my favourite walks in the area. lots of different trails

I walk here all the time with my dog . A favorite for both of us . Every season offers a different view. Right now the colorful leaves are scattered everywhere...so gorgeous. Feels like you are in the middle of the forest but really you are not .

I've walked the ravine many times. It was always peacefull. Usually there isn't too many mosquitoes as there isn't much stagnant water. A good place for a meditative walk when it's not busy. It's too small for a good bike ride.

Your hike starts off with a stroll around a duck filled heart shaped pond with a beautiful history steeped in romance. The trails are many and the woods are totally natural. There is an off-leash zone for the doggies and no problem with strollers. Beautiful spot!

While not as large as Point Pleasant Park or Shubie Park, Hemlock Ravine is a hidden walking-trail / hiking gem that isn't normally that busy.

Not just a walking trail but having a man made heart pond in the area has a lot of meaning. This is a one of a kind park that has a romantic history. Nice walking on a foggy or sunny day.

It a great place to lake your dog. It has several off-lease trails and always has doggie bags and several convenient garbage drop-offs. Good chance to see deer in the woods and good hill for exercise.
