Twelve miles of hiking trails take you through field and forest, over high bluffs, and along peaceful streams. You’re likely to see a variety of native wildlife and wildflowers, and you might even find a creek that disappears! We do offer guided nature hikes, but, if you’d like your own personal “guide,” check out the self-guiding trail booklet for the Lakeshore Trail.
