Robinson Nature Center Walking Trails brochure

Robinson Nature Center has approximately 1 mile of trails. Portions of the trail are paved, while the majority of the trails traverse rugged, wooded terrain. The paved portions of the trail are wheelchair- and stroller-accessible. Click on the links below to download or browse Robinson's Walking Trails brochure and a map of the trails.

Accessing the Trails

Our trails are accessible to pedestrian traffic when the building is closed. However, if you are driving to the Center, please note that the parking lot gates are only open during the building's hours of operation (Weds - Sat from 9AM to 5 PM, and Sun from Noon to 5 PM). For safety reasons, the trail may be closed if there is maintenance scheduled or if there are high winds.

What You Can Expect

Along our trails, you will encounter a stream crossing and views of the Middle Patuxent River. The trails are non-surfaced and take approximately 20-30 minutes to hike. Along the trails, you can enjoy a variety of trees marked by arboretum signage generously donated by the Howard County Forestry Board.

Please pay admission or purchase an annual pass if you plan to use our trail so that we may continue to maintain the trail.
