2018 Featured Trail | Westmoreland – Coming Soon!


Hikes & Blooms- TBA

Bikes & Blooms produced with Legacy Parks Foundation, allows visitors and residents to experience the Dogwood trails the lean, green way – on a bicycle by way of an organized ride. These are family friendly bike rides through scenic neighborhoods and on local greenways. Rides are approximately eight miles long and are geared to help riders learn how to do their own road rides.

Hikes & Blooms- TBA

Whether on a greenway through a historic park or on a trail through the woods, observe historic relics and beautiful wildflowers among the dogwood trees on these easy three-mile hikes. The interactive hikes will highlight interesting facts, features, and flora about the unique locations
