The Orchard Trail provides access to Crystal Bridges Museum Of American Art main entrance from Orchards Park and NE J Street. The trail features the Buckyball, Hydration Station (for water and soft drinks) and an evergreen forest. It is a cement paved surface. Open year-round from sunrise to sunset daily. A highlight of this trail is the Bucky Ball sculpted by Leo Villareal. Named in honor of theorist and engineer Buckminster Fuller, the Buckyball features two nested geometric spheres that form the shape of a Carbon 60 molecule. The structure is covered in LED tubes, controlled by computer software, capable of producing 16 million distinct colors. It is illuminated from 10 am to 10:30 pm daily. The daytime light show is a white-light sequence that later changes to a vibrantly colored evening sequence after dark.

Short, paved trail with not much to see. By itself nothing exciting but does allow you to connect to some dirt paths at Crystal Bridges that offer more to see.
