“A great family-friendly trail with gently rolling hills and great views.”— Maggie Olson
Family Friendly This trail is just long enough to feel like a real undertaking for kids, but is flat and without major obstacles, so kids can easily enjoy it.
What Makes It Great:
A smooth, wide loop, Tree Farm Trail serves as home to a whole host of woodland creatures (rabbits, squirrels, moles, chipmunks and the occasional deer). It’s a bit like “Bambi” come to life, and families in particular are bound to enjoy everything about it. Hikes and trail runs are good here. It has everything great about the CVNP in one place: a beautiful pond (where anglers can be spotted occasionally tossing in a line) with a beautiful loop that doesn’t push visitors to their limits… unless they choose to push themselves with a pair of running shoes.
Who is Going to Love It:
This is one of the most mainstream locations in the park system, since it's a real people-pleaser: Hikers, trail runners, cross-country skiers, birders, photographers, and especially kids and families will love this trail. It’s hard to think of anyone who wouldn’t like it, unless you’re the type who is geared up for a more intense challenge. If that’s you, this might be a pass… but we think that when you get out of the car (or off your bike) you’re going to take a look around and want to explore anyway.
