The pass also allows you to walk through the Oatlands Inner Core Grounds, English Gardens and to view the many Historic Structures. The 7 Trails meander through rolling fields, woods, and creeks. Solid line trails are multi- use for hikers, cyclists, and equestrians. Trails denoted with a dotted line and Oatlands Inner Core Grounds are for hikers only.
