Hike 16 miles of trails among 1,700 acres of woodland, wetland, and prairie. Walk at a leisurely pace on a paved path around Meadow Lake. Venture deep into the woodlands on Heritage Trail. Walk nine miles of scenic paved roads, or go off-trail hiking through the Conifer Collection.
In 2008, the newest hiking trail was created. The two mile trail, which you can catch at Meadow Lake, and P-18 and P-17, passes through the Elm Collection, mulberries, and lindens, loops through the Japan Collection and continues through the Appalachia Collection.
Many visitors prefer to see the grounds by hiking because it lets them experience nature up close, in new and intimate ways.
