Cradle of Forestry Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The Cradle of Forestry is home to the first forestry school in North America and offers two interpretive trails. This hike combines both paths into a 2.2-mile figure eight. The first path, The Forest Festival Trail, teaches hikers about the plants and animals that define the surrounding habitat. The adjoining path, the Biltmore Campus Trail, takes you through the restored and reconstructed buildings that comprised the first forestry school in North America.
The Cradle of Forestry is a great place to take groups of children. Call the main switchboard for group rates, educational programming, and scheduling."
