Take a nature hike

There are activities to enjoy at Grace Note Farm during every season.

There are trails to pursue on horseback, by bicycle, and on foot in every kind of weather. It’s gorgeous in the fall when the leaves are turning.

In winter, the trails are perfect for cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and beautiful winter hikes. In the summer and spring every outdoor activity imaginable is available to you here, right outside our door.
