TThis mid-mountain traverse is for the adventurous wanderer and will lead you into two additional loops; Raven & Fox. Start the Osprey journey as you pass by the Hollow and Burrow and Zig Zag your way up a few heart pumping switch backs (162m elevation gain). At the crux of the trail, rest and rehydrate at the solar operated potable water station, and then choose your adventure as Osprey opens up its wing span and invites you to venture North or South (120m elevation gain). Access to both The Perch & The Nest is via Osprey Trail, each having their own path off the main trail into their private space.

In honor of the Raven, this is the most solitary trail in the Radius circuit. Strut around the infinity loop in bliss and find yourself immersed in the quiet of nature with a birds eye view of the valley below. Raven itself is not a challenging walk - but you need to hike up the zig zag of Osprey before you can begin this peaceful loop.

Who doesn’t love a good loop!? Traveling through a melange of thick forest, indigenous wild flower meadows, new growth forests and natural wildlife habitat, Fox Loop is a highly recommended leisurely loop to add to your wandering. And it makes a nice cool down before you head back to Osprey or Elk Trail. This trail takes you to Radius’ North Boundary so watch for the signs and stick to the loop!
Forest Therapy Trail
This is an easy path, built for smooth walking as you gaze up and around the towering forest. Wander with the intention of connecting with nature, while you embrace the healing powers and open your mind to a spiritual experience. Put your phone away, go within, embrace your wild and invoke your senses. It can take you 10 minutes or 2 hours – it is your own self guided tour. Or better yet, contact Pat Bavin for a guided Forest Therapy Session to embrace the full experience of Forest Meditation.
