I've walked the ravine many times. It was always peacefull. Usually there isn't too many mosquitoes as there isn't much stagnant water. A good place for a meditative walk when it's not busy. It's too small for a good bike ride.

While not as large as Point Pleasant Park or Shubie Park, Hemlock Ravine is a hidden walking-trail / hiking gem that isn't normally that busy.
