All Persons Trail

On this 1,700 feet universally accessible All Persons Trail, you’ll pass through old field, woodland edge, and wetland/pond communities. It follows a wide path with a smooth, packed surface. It leads to a boardwalk overlooking scenic Pike’s Pond. 

Much of the trail is level with a few moderate slopes along its route. Narrated stops along the trail are marked by signs in print and Braille. Some are mounted on wooden posts, while others are affixed to other objects.


Download our printed guides or pick up trail information including a guide in printed or Braille format, and a printed or tactile trail map at the nature center.

We also have adaptive items available for loan including hands-free binoculars (on a tripod), audio players, a large print version of the Peterson Field Guide to Eastern Birds, and a walking cane with a small seat.
