Hiking Trails

“Deer Print Trail” is a hiking excursion through the beautiful woodlands on our 100-acre property. A pleasant walk in any season, with close up views of plant and wildlife, this trail offers a light to moderate 25-30 min hike. We are also a short drive from Middle Creek Wildlife Reserve, which offers hours of hiking and wildlife with a variety of difficulty levels.

POND

Spend a relaxing afternoon at our fishing pond, located at the southern end of our property. No license is required, but we do not supply any fishing equipment. We also ask that you follow “catch-and-release” fishing practices. If you’re not interested in fishing, there is a shaded walking path around the lake, providing a peaceful spot for a bit of exercise.

Campfires

Bring your group together around a campfire after a fun day of activities. We have a number of different sites available, depending on your group size. You can choose to set up your own campfire (you just need to purchase the wood for a nominal fee), or choose an option where we do all the setup including wood, kindling, and starter fluid. You just have to drop a match!
