Duke Farms includes almost 1000 acres of land and is owned by the Duke Farms Foundation (DFF) that was established in 1998 to manage the estate. The Foundation, in turn, is part of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.

So much to see Trails, flowers, wildlife plants, even saw wild turkies! It's good to bring your family and friends. You can walk or ride a bike rented bike (Like we did) or bring your own.

Wonderful for the family bike outing. Some hills, but mostly paved trails. Easy parking access and well maintained. Not really mountain biking, just easy trails.

This is one of my favorite places to run or bike. I bring my own road bike and stay on the paved roads, or rent a bike ($5) for use on gravel paths. A visit to cemetery hill is well worth the small effort. I love dogs, but I'm glad this is a dog-free space. There are groundhogs, rabbits and fox all around. Because of the Farm's initiatives in native plantings, the bird watching is great. Leave your earbuds in the car and let the birds sing to you.

We went there for the first time 2 weeks ago and we are NEVER going back there again. We were covered in ticks within 5 mins of our walk on gravel. It wasn't like 5-10 ticks, there were atleast 50 that we found on each person in our group. They kept coming out our shoes, shirts and hair. We drove back in our underwear.

Spring through fall weekends are literally crowded. This is not really a place to "hike". It's an easy walk, run, bike ride. It is full of sights and history. It is beautiful. Avoid crowds by going off season and early in the day. And there are more ticks here than anywhere in the NJ/PA/NY area, so be prepared for that.
