Our first challenge in 1985 was to create a 10 mile system of cross-country skiing and hiking trails. During warmer months our 12 foot wide trails are grassy and mowed monthly.
Walking barefoot across the valley floor along our Bambi-Eze trail is a surefire way to feel at peace with nature. Funny thing, during these barefoot walks our Siberian Huskies seem to feel grounded too even though they are always barefoot. Our other three trails cover meadows, valleys, woodland, gentle slopes and steep hills. Here’s a panoramic vista taken from the entrance of our Doe Chase trail.
Our trail map (topographical map) shows our easy to most difficult trails, 20 feet of elevation change between each set of lines and the routes of our two challenging 18-basket disc golf courses.
Each trail offers varying degrees of fitness challenge and opportunities to catch a glimpse of birds, wildlife, interesting trees and native plants. Like our lodging, each trail provides distinctly different choices and opportunities. Seen here is our Forestry Hike from June 8, 2013.
We are re-establishing oak savannah, goat prairie and woodland habitat. Twice a year Ben Robel of Vegetation Management brings in goats to reduce unwanted brush. We also utilize girdling, burning and other techniques. Visit our Blog for additional information about our Forestry Hike and our approach to land management.
