In addition to providing more than 50 trail systems open dawn to dusk, ACRES offers a variety of hikes & events throughout our region, all year long.

ACRES events are held rain or shine, sleet or snow. We love sharing the natural world with you in all seasons.


The health and safety of our ACRES family is paramount, as is the public health of our communities.

Social distancing (keeping at least 6-feet of distance between individuals at all times) will be implemented at all events. PLEASE STAY HOME IF YOU FEEL ILL or have recently been exposed to someone with COVID-19

Temporary on-site hours:

ACRES staff will also be working remotely and available by phone and email. Thank you for your patience as we work to provide easy and welcoming access at our headquarters!

Thanks to member support, our trail systems remain open 7 days a week, from dawn to dusk, at no charge. It’s no secret that spending time in nature benefits us both physically and emotionally. Feeling cooped up and stressed out? Find fresh air, peace and renewal at an ACRES preserve near you.
