Please note:


We have three main trails:

  • Forest Trail (blazed yellow) which is about 1/2 mile long and loops around the Samuel P. Pardoe Building through the woods;
  • Pond Loop Trail (blazed blue) which is about 1 mile long and follows the perimeter of the property to our wooded pond;
  • Sugar Trail (blazed red) which goes through our sugar bush area to the Sugarhouse. 
  • New connector trail (blazed orange) that goes from the SPP Building southwest to the Pond Loop Trail.
  • Field Paths – In the summer, we mow a walking path around the “Lower Fox Field” (between the SPP Building and the gardens) and around the big field across White Oaks Road from the farmhouse.
