If you want to take a small or medium walk or hike in the middle of Bedford and enjoy nature and hemlock trees this is the place for you. All trails are well marked and you would never know that civilization is just a few feet away. Peaceful and quiet in the middle of the day.

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.
