Very well maintained trails for hiking less than a mile up to about six miles. Varied terrain with excellent education stops and information on several of the trails. Pavillons for large or small outings available. Closed in Winter months

I've been to Clemmons three times and my family loves it. The trails are pretty and we still haven't seen all of them. Nice picnic areas as well.

Low on Cash High on Education, no entry fees, but tons of educational encounters for everyone. No cost learning at its best.

Just a nice visit, the kids can push buttons on trees to hear about different type of trees growing in the woods. A nice walk. I recommend it even without kids.
