We spent a few days hiking the gorgeous property. First off, looping the lake trail was so nice. If this is the only walk/hike you do, you'll love it. Then on another day we hiked Little Glassy Trail. Then on a third day we hiked Big Glassy Mountain. The entire experience was just so beautiful. Can't wait to return when the leaves are changing to see the colors. Even though the color was gone, the woods and trails are just spectacular. Big Glassy Mountain trail is gradually up all the way, but we saw families and people of all ages hike this trail on Thanksgiving Day. The grounds are free and there are goats for kids of all ages. Enjoy.

Great time on the farm with children and a neat learning experience. Loved earning really nice badges to add to our junior ranger vests!

We went here mostly to the hike with a group of friends. The house and grounds were nice but the house was closed due to COVID. We REALLY enjoyed the hiking trails. We were able to get in just over 5 miles. The trails are easy to follow but aware there are definitely some hills along the way. Our hike up Big Glassy Hill trail led us to a great lookout that was well worth the climb!

An OK place to visit if you are good with staying on the road. Most of the good places in the pastures for photography are off limits and the BS excuse the rangers give changes with every vìsìt.

A beautiful place to hike and relax. Looking forward to seeing inside the house once COVID restrictions are removed.

I love going walking at Carl Sandburg Home. The trails are challenging but great! The view from the top at Glassy Mountain is beautiful!! Definitely worth the hike up there!!

Unfortunately the home was closed due to covid. But the groungs were open. The estate and farm are perfectly maintained. It was nice to see the goats. The buildings and displays were excellent. The facilities for the public are set up nice and well maintained. It is a little bit of a gentle up hill walk and is handi cap accessible. There also nice walking trails. A great place to have a lunch and spend the day.

Beautiful property and houses! Our family enjoyed walking the property and looking at all the historic structures, living quarters, main house, and of course visiting the goats! Was sad we couldn't see inside anything or get a tour, but it was a wonderful piece of history to visit and learn about.
