Lace-up and Hit the Trails Today

Wheaton Regional Park, the first regional park in the Park system, offers both natural surface and hard surface trails (pdf). A four-mile network of hard-surface trails traverse the southern portion of the park. The natural-surface trail network includes bridle trails and nature trails oriented to Brookside Nature Center and the horse Stables on Glenallen Avenue.

The HeartSmart trail is a hard surface, level path that winds throughout the 50-acre garden. Bronze medallions embedded in the path every 1/10 of a mile help walkers track the distance they travel. The trail begins at the rear of the Visitors Center off of Glenallan Avenue.
