Brief description of the trash site

This is a gorgeous, wooded ravine tucked beside a residential neighborhood just off Millers Falls Road on the west side of Norman Circle. There is a large, heavy corrugated metal pipe in the ravine and lots of plastic plant pots and other litter that gets washed down the ravine from the stormwater drainage system. The best access is at the shallow end of the ravine nearby he intersection of Millers Falls Road and Norman Circle and all travel on this site will be off trail on loose hillside terrain or at the bottom of the ravine.
