Green Creek has carved a 20-acre ravine into the Portage Escarpment, a small version of Euclid Creek's escarpment gorge. In 1883, the Euclid Railroad used the ravine to reach quarries on Euclid and Nine Mile Creeks in Bluestone village. Clear-cut at this time, the ravine quickly reforested in species tolerant of early suburban disturbance: red oak, sugar maple and black locust. Unmaintained since being abandoned in 1967, the railroad terrace is slumping into the stream. Bluestone is looking to assess this erosion problem with a goal to re-naturalize much of the ravine. We will hike the old roadbed to see the forest, the erosion and the surprising beauty of this escarpment ravine.
