Nearly 7.5 miles of hiking trails at the Claytor Nature Center allow visitors to experience beautiful natural landscapes including open fields, woodlands, riverside cliffs, wetlands, and a wide variety of flora and fauna. There are also five geocaches scattered about the property. For information about geocaching or to download locations, visit www.geocaching.com. When you sign in at the CNSC kiosk, you can also swing by the lobby of the education building to pick up the short companion guide to the CNSC’s five geocaches, or download the companion guide here: Geocache companion.
We currently do not allow horses, ATVs, or bikes on our trails. Dogs are welcome, but must remain on leash at all times.
The Center is also registered on the Virginia Birding and Wildlife Trail with the Virginia Department of Inland Fisheries.
