The 10-mile trail system here is a work in progress; more trails will be created over time. There are three main options. Two of them can be accessed from the kiosk on Wheeler Road. The 1.8-mile “Loop Trail” is a bit more challenging than the “Price Valley Trail.”

The “Price Valley Trail” is 1.7 miles long (one way) ending at Darwin Road, a seasonal road that is not plowed. This is a flat-to-gently rolling trail with a gradual ascent toward Darwin Road.

Check out the beautiful “Darwin Loop Trail,” added when we purchased an additional 14 acres in 2017. Catch a glimpse of Sugarloaf through the trees. Park on Darwin Road to hike or ski into the northern end of Palmer Woods along this beautiful winding section of road. (Darwin is a seasonal road not plowed by the county.)
