About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

This is a nice easy loop around the lake near the entrance to the park.  It’s a great way to add a little distance to a visit to the goat farm, without committing to a more serious hike.  There are several places with close access to the water for throwing rocks or spotting fish and turtles.

No trip to Carl Sandburg Home is complete without a visit to the goat farm! Head up the hill to visit the goats first, then on your way back down the trail, fork right to loop around the lake.
