Description

The shortest trail in Tyler Arboretum offers family-friendly hiking and views of seasonally flowering meadows. With a gentle hill and a short, simple loop, this trail is ideal for families with young children, while offering several places along the route at which to pause and enjoy a quiet moment of peace and personal serenity.

From the Scenic Loop, follow signs for the Middle Farm Trail. This trail begins on a paved path, which wanders past the Rhododendron Garden. This path will eventually lead to a yellow bench next to a grass path. Follow the grass path until you reach "Gate 3". Make sure to close the gate on your way out of the park. Follow the yellow blazes along the trail making sure to keep an eye out for double blazes, which indicate a turn in the path.
