Trees & TrailsTrees and Trails is approximately five miles of pedestrian, recreational and educational trails located in the Burden Woods. Trees and Trails was designed to support a variety of pedestrian activities including interpretive and educational activities for youth and adults, hiking, adventure and discovery.

This trail system provides a framework for nature experiences with educational objectives.  Outdoor classrooms are used for the docent-led Project Learning Tree (PLT) program.  PLT is a program for students in grades 4 through 7 that focuses on the surrounding natural world, the importance of maintaining ecosystems in an urban environment and the cultural heritage of our region.

We welcome and encourage schools and organizations at all age levels to come and enjoy Trees and Trails both as an educational and fitness opportunity.

The trail system is open from 8 a.m. to dusk every day of the year except Christmas and New Year’s Day.
