Lay Center Grounds
The 350-acre property is a nature lover's dream. The five-mile walking trail winds through a primarily oak-hickory forest with several open fields and two lakes. Throughout the trail, signage has been posted to help guests identify the seasonal flora and fauna. This trail is perfect for science class field trips.
In addition to the beautiful landscape, guests can walk a well-maintained path through the Sculpture Park; read, play, and picnic in Story Woods; and appreciate the peacefulness of the McElwee-Stewart-Carr Cemetery.
