This easy-to-hike, ½ mile trail winds its way through the mixed white pine and hemlock stand behind the mansion.

The trailhead is located at the paved path near the parking area behind the mansion. Along the trail you will learn about forest ecosystems and forest health. You will see what life was like for forestry students more than a century ago by visiting the re-creation of a Yale School of Forestry tent site, and hear some great old songs and stories on the wind-up EcoBox at the tent site.
