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.
