Description
Waypoints (0)

An easy trail to walk, great for people of all ages. Beautiful gardens and wildlife around for photography opportunities. Very clean and the people are friendly. 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. Accessibility: The trail surface is paved and it is typically at least eight feet wide. The average grade is estimated at 2% and the max grade is 4% so most wheelchair/mobility equipment and stroller users will likely find this trail navigable.

This is a walk on paved streets that have been closed to traffic. It is not a hike. That said, it is a walk through beautiful gardens. If one wanted. they could easily turn this into a six mile trek without ever leaving the grounds.

Need to come back when I’m not pressed for time. Got here around 2:30 after covering 8 miles on another trail and the park closes at 4:30. Only a few people and all were wearing mask .

HikingGreat!

Nice, relaxing and flat walking! It could be for anyone. There is a small remote route around the lake in this itinerary. You will have to walk down from the bridge. Given the farm is open only on weekdays with limited hours, I find it very safe and comfortable to hike while keeping enough distance among the visitors.
