Due to continued concerns about the covid-19 pandemic, the Forest Museum and connected trails, Etawah Woods, Valley of the Ancients and Barrier Ridge, will be closed until April, 2021. During this time we will be taking this opportunity to make long-deferred improvements and renovations to the trails and museum that require warm weather to complete. All other trails at the Highlands Nature Sanctuary remain open.

Appalachian Forest Museum & Museum Hiking Trails are currently closed for the 2020 season. We will re-open April, 2021.

All Other Hiking Trails at the Sanctuary are open sunrise to sunset year-round, weather permitting.  Sorry, dogs are not permitted on Sanctuary trails except at Crow Point Trail.
