Sarah Anne C. on George Washington Carver National Monument Trail
A portion of the trail was under construction, however it was a very lovely walk and the historical areas were very nice. The indoors portion was very impressive.
This is a very well maintained trail, with some great learning potential. I would definitely suggest going around the contemplative loop. This one is very short, but it is still nice to get out and walk around. I especially enjoyed the foot bridges, and some of the views down the creek.
My boys and I visited as sort of a "field trip" during Black History Month. If you have kids, this very hands on natural science museum is absolutely amazing and was well worth our hour drive. The walking trail was quite a nice surprise too! It was very well maintained and the historic home and small pond were highlights. We saw several hawks as well. Really great place! We will be returning in the Spring for sure.
Just did a return visit to the visitor center and rewalked the trail. Superb all around. It is not a hiking destination even though the wallking path is well worth it. The visitor center is first class, staff was wonderful.
