About the Park

Native Lands Park sprawls across 187 acres, with 160.5 acres dedicated as park land featuring the Native Lands Heritage Trail. This 6-foot wide mowed trail gracefully winds from north to south, and is accessible from three trailheads, providing park users with a scenic journey amidst mowed open fields. 

The Native Lands Heritage Trail also plays a role in the relocation of the Mason-Dixon Trail from Long Level Road to the County’s property, aligning seamlessly with the Native Lands Heritage Trail. Explore the Native Lands Heritage Trail with the aid of the self-guided tour available in the park’s brochure which can be found here. Enhance your hiking experience by learning about the rich history of the park as you traverse the trail.
