Hike at Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary

2 Miles Total - Loop Trail

Originally added by S Jennings

The Heard has 289 acres of nature preserve with several miles of hiking trails.

Walking the trails at the Heard is different each time. There are seasonal surprises along each trail ranging from trout lilies in the early spring to eryngo in the fall. Plus, I never know when I'll spot a bobcat or other wildlife living out in the sanctuary.
