Taft Reserve Trails
There are 8 miles of hiking trails at the Taft Reserve.
Taft Reserve has several miles of woodland trails with some skirting the edges of fields. The trails are earthen and grass, the terrain gently rolling, and in general this park is quite suitable for beginners. There is an abandoned house and farm outbuildings near Linville Road. There is also one earthen and one stone mound on the reserve. Dogs and horses are permitted on the trails.
