Visitors are welcome to follow the Pumpkin Trail at Maple Hill Farm. This trail is designed for preschoolers to experience really “being in the woods” without having to walk miles. The Sassafras Trail features sassafras trees, dogwood, sarsaparilla, wild grapes, wild raspberries and more. There are pumpkins to guide you along the way. The pumpkins start on the stone wall when you enter Maple Hill Farm parking lot. We have seen deer, fisher, grouse and fox tracks nearby. See what you can find!
