Beautiful nature walk. Kid friendly and safe. My kids loved reading the wooden posts along the way to see what the names of trees and plants are.

Great trails. We took our 7yr. Old and 10 month old in a stroller. The trial is well maintained crushed stone and very wide. There are some steep hills, which did make pushing a stroller a big work out. We all loved it and will definitely be back. We really loved the clay tile drainage trenches, instead of just boring pvc or plastic pipes. Highly recommended.

As someone else mentioned, you can also branch off on other trials outside of the maintained ones.
Make a great trail running place.

Well maintained paths on Hamilton college. Some hills. Beautiful plant life, some species are marked with their names. Can also walk in the gardens nearby. Beautiful year round. Cross country skiing and snowshoeing are popular in the winter.

Short scenic walk in the middle of Hamilton College. The grounds are very well cared for. Lots to see with trees, flowers and bushes tagged with there name and description.
