Hiking Trails

Hiking Trail StepsFickle Trickle FallsHikers find Sherwood’s 20+ miles of trails both challenging and beautiful.  Middle Mountain Trail ascends to 3,300 feet, offering a panoramic view of the Blue Ridge Mountains along the way.  Feed Rock Trail climbs to an unusual granitic dome, then descends sharply past caves and a hidden waterfall.  Hikers head to Greenwood Trail for wildflowers in the spring, and Perimeter Trail when the leaves change colors in the fall. Each trail delivers a unique forest experience.

Guided nature walks expand knowledge of the ferns, flowering plants and trees which live in this varied ecosystem, and birders delight in the sounds and sights along the trail system.
