Walking Trails

Dogwood Arts Featured Walking Trails

Emphasizing the natural beauty of spring with breathtaking flora along historical architecture and inviting people to take a leisure stroll through the neighborhood, Dogwood Arts is adding new and revamped walking trails to the 2014 Festival.  Focusing on the idea of stepping out into our community, the trails are at least one-mile in length and folks are encouraged to walk, run, or bike these additional trails.

Ten new trails added this year! A leisurely stroll on one of these twenty four featured walking trails allows you to see all the beauty up-close while you enjoy a spring day or just get away from the bustle of everyday life for a while.
