Perhaps you have taken a boat ride on the Dixie Belle, eaten some delicious farm to fork food in the dining room, or seen a sheep being sheared on the farm. What you might not know is that Shaker Village also has some wonderful trails on their 3,000 acres. There are about 40 miles of trails for you to explore that begin at three different trail heads. Pick a trail that crosses Shawnee Run and you will hop on rocks to cross the creek a few times and see a beautiful waterfall. Head down to the Palisade trail this Spring and spot tons of wildflowers. Trails are open for hiking, mountain biking, and equestrian. Make the short trip to Shaker Village soon and see what all there is to discover!
