Grailville is nestled in 315 acres of woods, pasture, creeks and gardens. Our trails are available to nature lovers during daylight hours.

Walkers and hikers are invited to the Welcome Center for trail maps, brochures on native plants, fair-trade gifts and more information about the history and mission of Grailville and The Grail (Click here for hours.) Dogs are welcome on our trails, on leash.

Our one-mile long South Trail leads from the Store and Welcome Center, through woodlands, streams, and pastures, down to Bares Creek.  Nature-inspired art, sculpture, and mosaic pieces enhance the journey.  Take a moment to rest and reflect on one of our beautiful natural benches.  This trail emerges from the woods near the barns and gardens - follow the gravel drive back.  

The North side of the property includes many mown paths for enjoying a peaceful walk in nature.  Approximately a mile and a half in total, you can walk along the fields, by the Grail cemetery and see the modern-art telephone pole sculptures installed in the 1960’s.  The path also intersects with O’Bannon Creek, one of the most beautiful areas of Grailville and a favorite for bird lovers.  Native plant and wildflower lovers also enjoy the diverse plant life that flourish in the prairies that surround these paths.

For more information about our wonderful trails, ways to enjoy them, or to get involved with trail preservation or trail art installations, please contact our Guest Services at Grailville. You can also download our Trail Maps.
