Visiting Aullwood

Find our location, hours, and all you need to know for a great visit.

Locations and Directions

Aullwood consists of two major locations, Aullwood Nature Center and Aullwood Farm, connected by eight miles of walking trails running through our beautiful 200 acre nature sanctuary. You can begin your visit at either site, then enjoy a scenic walk in the Nature Sanctuary along trails leading to the other location or take a quick five minute car trip there instead. Your payment at either location pays your admission to both.
