Trails for everyone, forever

Home Go Hiking Hiking Guide Wright Park

WTA is a nonprofit that needs you

We’re just as excited as you to get the summer hiking season started. We're psyched our website and work for trails help you get outside.

But we're a nonprofit run on donations from regular people. If everyone who visited this website this holiday weekend donated $9/month, it would fully fund our work for the next 2 years. Of course, time spent outdoors is priceless, but every donation large or small helps us support those experiences for everyone.

Please take 2 minutes to chip in $9.

Thank you and happy hiking!

Peppered with statues and monuments, this is a park designed in a classical style. The gem of architecture here is the glass conservatory which opened in 1908 and still welcomes visitors.

An organic layout of pathways makes it easy to wander past all the attractions with no particular route in mind, or, if you prefer, a loop trail follows the perimeter of the park for a neat 0.9 mile walk.
