Hiking Trails

Cromwell Valley Park contains many trails, ranging from easy to strenuous. The following are those which are well established and blazed. There are also many un-designated trails including shortcuts between the "colored" trails. Visitors are asked to stay on the trails as much as possible. Trail brochures are available at the information kiosk across from the Willow Grove parking lot and the Sherwood Farm parking lot near the Sherwood House.

The trail descriptions are being updated and will be posted upon completion.


Orienteering Course
The Orienteering Course is a loop with 10 control points, approximately 1.5 miles in length. It is considered a beginner's course, and covers moderate terrain through varied meadow, forest and stream habitat, and includes several of the historical features of the Park. The course begins at the kiosk by the Willow Grove parking lot. A map and instructions can be downloaded or they are available at the Willow Grove Nature Education Center.
