Guests can come walk our trails and meander through the gardens starting in June. Please don't visit if you are feeling sick, bring face masks/coverings with you on ALL visits, stay at least 6 feet away from other people, and leave pets at home. One customer/family at a time on the Farm Stand porch.
If you're looking for a new place to explore, need a quiet "nature break" away from it all, or want to do a short hike with kids, check out the trails here at Petals in the Pines. Stop at our Farm Stand porch and get a map hanging in the clear box on the wall. We have a series of gently rolling trails that go around the perimeter of our 7.5 acres. It takes about 15 minutes to walk the loop, unless you stop to look at the natural beauty you'll find along the way. The Meditation Trail can be accessed from the bridge that crosses our stream, just below the old stone dam and seasonal waterfall. This trail is a bit more strenuous, but it's worth the effort as you journey to the top! In all, there are about a mile of trails to explore.
The gardens are located out beyond the house, with grass paths connecting them.There you'll find garden beds both big and small--some out in the open, some tucked in against a rock outcropping. This is where NATURE meets NURTURE. You'll see a combination of cultivated beds (over 250 different varieties) interwoven with trees, shrubs and wildflowers.
Our pollinator meadow is being renovated this year with new plantings. You'll want to be sure to check it out. It's located below the solar panels on the far side of the house. Please stay on the paths in the meadow and gardens. You may find us working on the property and we'll be happy to answer any questions you might have.
Unlike our Tale Trail experience, admission for walking the trails or gardens is a free-will offering. You can leave a donation at the Farm Stand porch. Please let us know how many adults and children were in your group and record it in our notebook on the table in the Farm Stand. Hike at your own risk, and watch for slippery rocks! The trails are not suitable for strollers; Please leave pets at home.
