Carl Sandburg’s Connemara Farm Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Showcasing Carl Sandburg’s homestead, this route leads around the lake at the property’s entrance, continues beside the white clapboard farmhouse, and heads up the hill for views from the exposed granite rock face on top of Glassy Mountain.

The trail to the top of Glassy Mountain, the highest point on Connemara Farms, starts with a gentle warm-up loop around the 0.4-mile lake trail. To begin your hike, walk down the wheelchair ramp from the parking lot to the lake. Turn left and hike south on a dirt path that travels clockwise around the water."
