Our more than 10 miles of walking trails offer breathtaking views and quiet spaces for conversation, discovery, and reflection. They are the primary way to enjoy our extensive campus, including popular destinations to the Farm Barn, lakeshore, Lone Tree Hill, and Flower Gardens. Trails close at sunset.

Please no dogs, bikes, or drones. (Trained service dogs welcome.)
