Even if you weren't interested in learning more about trees, you can certainly appreciate the scenic beauty as you stroll along the grounds. You may chose from several walking trails that include a stroll though Dogwood Lane, an old abandoned road that once lead to the mansion over the hill. You may also choose to stroll along the Virginia Native Plant trail or just sit on a bench and admire the quiet beauty of the natural area.
