The Harris Center trails are free and open year-round to the public. A kiosk is located at the trailhead just outside our office….a good place to start exploring the 16 miles of trails. Whether you are birding, strolling, picnicking, or looking for a challenging hike, there is something for every type of explorer! Please remember our “carry-in, carry-out” and “all dogs on a leash” policies. Scroll down to view our trail maps, and enjoy your adventures!
There are two trail systems at the Harris Center:
(1) West Side Trails. These trails offer moderate to steep climbs in the highlands surrounding the Harris Center. A hike up Mount Skatutakee on the Harriskat trail is about 3 miles round-trip. A loop over two summits via the Harriskat, Thumbs Up, and Thumbs Down trails is about 4.5 miles. A route to the top of Cobb Hill is nearly 2 miles round-trip.
(2) East Side Trails. These trails feature fairly easy hiking to huge glacial boulders through cool hardwood and hemlock forests.
Both trail systems are marked and provide a rich array of habitats, views, and hiking opportunities for all ages. Have a great time!
