FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
When is the Sculpture Forest open?
Every day of the year from 8:00am until 7:00pm or sunset (whichever occurs earlier).
Are dogs, pets, horses, bikes, or ATVs allowed?
Is there an admission fee?
How accessible are the trails?
The trails total 0.6 miles / 1 kilometer long and are divided into two loops. The first loop (Nature Nurtured) is 4 feet wide and very level (for a forest setting, with gradual variances throughout). The second loop (Whimsy Way) is 3 feet wide, wanders down a sloped hillside, and then comes back up, with about 100 feet of elevation difference. The second loop hiking trail is steeper than ADA guidelines. All trails are made of hard-packed dirt. A wheelchair could go through the first loop, though the surface is not perfectly smooth and this would not be recommended if it had recently rained (due to potential for puddles and mud). Five sitting benches are located along the trails, mostly around the first flat Nature Nurtured trail. Battery powered accessibility scooters or wheelchairs are permitted for those who have a medical need for it. Bikes and motorized vehicles are not permitted on the trails. Both loop trails have directional signage so that visitors should all be flowing in the same direction without overlap, though someone could potentially come from the “incorrect” direction if they ignore the signs and this could create tight two way traffic. There is also a designated ADA parking spot.
Is there parking?
Yes, there is a paved parking lot at the main entrance. A designated ADA parking spot is included. If you have schedule flexibility, it is easier to find parking on weekdays than on weekends during summer months. Busiest times tend to be around 11:00am-4:00pm Saturday and Sunday.
Are bike racks available?
Yes, art bike racks are located immediately to the left as you enter the parking lot.
Is there a restroom or garbage cans?
There is a basic portable restroom and garbage can available at the entrance parking lot. Please take all trash out with you, if possible.
