Hike through this beautiful expanse of meadow tucked inside Longwood Gardens

Longwood Gardens, located in Kennet Square Pennsylvania, is one of the premier horticultural display gardens in the country. Explore over 1,077 acres of gardens, woodlands, wetlands, and floral displays. Don't miss the Meadow Garden Trail!

The Meadow Garden features an 86 acre expanse of native plants, wildflowers, and scenic views over the gently rolling landscape. 

To reach the Meadow Garden trailhead, enter Longwood Gardens and walk toward the back. Follow the signs until you reach the entrance to the Meadow Garden Trail. There are multiple trail options, but the Outer Meadow Hike provides the longest and most complete experience. 

Stop and take in the scenery at one of the pavilion or lookout points. 

Enjoy!
