Ruffner Mountain

Ruffner Mountain is a 1,038-acre nature preserve. There are several trails to hike. Ruffner Mountain has an rehabilitation area for animals, so if you go in the building you can sometimes see insects and animals. They also have events and do guided hikes, but you have to make sure that you  sign up in time because the spots are limited.

My husband and I have went here for the past two weeks and explored it. My first time I thought it was an easy hike and for a lot of people it would be. I would say it’s probably easy-medium, especially if you are out of shape and I most definitely out of shape.

You can find a lot of critters, we found quite a few salamanders. You can also find some fossils down in the quarry, but we did not find any so we will be going back. You can hike to the over look and look out over the quarry. This second time we were there for a quite a few hours. If you are looking for a somewhat easy hike then I would try hiking here, if it’s your first time, it might be a bit of a challenge, but not a horrible hike to do for your first time.
