Explore the trails and ravines

Is there a better gift than quality time together? Take a break from city life and explore one of the largest ravine systems in the entire world. Evergreen Brick Works has been a gateway to the ravine system since the site became our home all the way back in 2010. Keep an eye out for deer, hawks, herons and other wildlife.
