Trails


Trails for exploring

There are about 1 1/2 miles of trails around the property, shown in the image below.  The conditions range from strolling on level, weeded ground, to rocky steep pitches, sometimes aided with hand rails.  Occasionally, a stretch occurs with leveled rocks or embedded rock steps.  No rock climbing or rappelling required!

During the growing season, most of the trails are sprayed with herbicide by the Maintenance Staff to minimize chigger and tick habitat.

Log benches are distributed for the fatigued traveler, or to wait for wild life to appear.
