Sadie Ford Heritage Farm and Cultural Arts Center
The Sadie Ford Heritage Farm and Cultural Art Center occupies 73.3 acres opposite the entrance to Cedars of Lebanon State Park and represents a cultural landscape with a high level of historic integrity. The house and outbuildings, including a milking barn, livestock barn, and corncrib, are characteristic of an early-to-mid 20th-century working farm. As the last extant pre-park farm in the area, this property allows the park to create a furnished, functioning farm circa 1920-1937 for an immersive, year-round, educational experience of living history open to the public.
Disc Golf Course
Cedars of Lebanon disc golf course is one of the first courses in the State.
Ten miles of hiking trails meander through the forests and glades. Hiking trails are open year-round. Visitors frequently enjoy glimpses of fox, deer, and turkey throughout the park. Each trail is blazed with a rectangular colored blaze-mark located on trees along the trail. Please note the color of the blaze-mark for the trail that you hike. Remember to stay on the trail for your own safety. Trail maps are available in the park office.
Cedars of Lebanon is within a 10,000-acre state forest in the states’ Inner Central Basin. Characterized by thin limestone soils and little surface water, the area is forested with eastern red cedar or by hardwoods on low hills or where deep soils occur. Forests are interspersed with extensive level open cedar glades, unique habitats that support rare or endemic plants, and attract birds of open country such as indigo bunting, prairie warbler, field sparrow and yellow-breasted chat. Adjacent oak-hickory woods are home to forest species such as barred and eastern screech owl, tanagers, vireos, and several warblers. Over 121 species have been recorded.
