Hopkins Demonstration Forest
is a 140-acre privately-owned forest open to the public for self-guided exploration, tours, workshops, and education programs.
We welcome guests during daylight hours, seven days a week throughout the year. Property maps are available at the information kiosk near our main parking area.
Three miles of trails crisscross our woodland, connecting you with a variety of habitats and forestry demonstrations. Enjoy a peaceful walk on our Watershed Interpretive Trail to see how we manage the riparian area to protect water quality in Little Buckner Creek.
Families and groups enjoy the Cedar Grove Picnic Shelter, while Scouts and schools like to meet in our amphitheater. There's something for everyone and something different in every season at Hopkins Demonstration Forest where learning and growing go hand in hand.
