The construction season is wrapping up and with that local trail improvement projects. The Raven’s Roost trail and cabin have reopened near Petersburg after being closed for a few months and the Cascade Creek Trail near Thomas Bay is finishing up work too.
Raven’s Roost Cabin sits on top of a low mountain just outside of Petersburg. The cabin and the four-mile trail leading up to it have been closed for a few months as the U.S. Forest Service made some improvements to the trail. Last summer, the first half mile of the trail was put in from Sandy Beach to the service road behind the airport. This summer the second half mile of the trail was improved from the road to the bottom of the mountain.
Paul Olson runs the cabin and trails program for the Petersburg Ranger District and he told me the new section of the trail is much more user friendly.
This is the final rest area of the new section of the Ravens Roost Trail at the top of the muskeg where it joins the old trail. There is a wooden bench and stone benches there. Photo/USFS
