A new hiking and biking trail in Petersburg opened up July 1. It creates an additional half mile section of the Raven’s Trail which is a four mile hike leading up a mountain to the Raven’s Roost Cabin. The new section starts near Sandy Beach Park and connects to the old trail behind the airport runway.

The U.S. Forest Service has been coordinating the project. Brad Hunter runs the recreation branch of the Petersburg Ranger District and says the biggest difference between this new trail and the old one is the quality.
