Morel Ravine is one of four trails (this, Box Turtle, Tall Oaks and Little West Virginia) that make up the Morgan Trail System. The trail's best feature is it use of the ravines to create a halfpipe experience at several points in the ride. Expect lots of log overs, steep climbs, optional rock gardens and skinnies. It's a short, intense blast. Ideally this trail is ridden in combination with the Tall Oaks intermediate level trail which includes the double black diamond Little West Virginia option.

      This trail system is well maintained and well marked. This trail has great flow with some punchy climbs and some really fun back and forth reversing slaloms that G-out into a little ravine and lift you back up with proper technique. I would definitely rate this a medium blue. As with Little WVA it is higher on the janky meter by PSP standards. These are great trails to practice your cornering on.
