Campus and the Nature Trail are closed to outside visitors.
To minimize the potential for vectoring and to support the health of the Haverford community and those with whom our community members interact, visitors to campus will be permitted on the Haverford College campus only as authorized guests. Download the Campus Access and Guest Policy (PDF)
Our 2.2 mile Nature Trail roughly follows the perimeter of the 216-acre campus.
The trail was established in 1933 by the Campus Club, a group of interested alums and students to showcase the college’s growing collection of trees and shrubs and encourage bird-watching. Athletic teams soon found the trail an excellent place to train. Today, portions go through the Arboretum’s conifer collection in the 18-acre Pinetum, past athletic fields, through our cherry and azalea lined Woolman Walk, around meadows that support wildlife, and alongside the scenic 3-acre Duck Pond and pollinator garden.
Please follow these simple courtesies so others may enjoy the trail as well:
- No biking
- Dogs need to be leashed at all times and not allowed on athletic fields
- Clean up after your pet
- Properly dispose of all waste and litter
