This 2.5 mile one way trail leads to Raven Cliffs.  The area around this valley and beyond to the west is named the Raven Cliffs Wilderness Area, and is a class four wilderness.  This means no mechanical devices allowed.  All trail work is done with hand tools.  This has been a fun area for me to maintain for many years.

Raven Cliffs at the end of the trail
There are four waterfalls in all; two about half way, and two at the end of the trail.

Bo -- A Good Trail Worker Gone to the Flatlands Bo with THE Tripod and two large cameras in his backpack
This is a good friend, he lets us call him Bo.  I first met him on this trail, and a great
volunteer partnership was formed.  We hiked and photographed when we were not volunteering, and he does strictly black and white with a Linhof Technika 4" x 5" view camera and a Hasselblad 2.25" x 2.25" camera.  VERY good work.  He is holding the large wooden tripod used to support his camera.  We get to drag that bad boy through the woods.
