About This Activity

Spread some holiday spirit with the whole family on our favorite trail run. The race begins at the Cultural Arts Center (barn) and covers the scenic trails around Abbey Nature Preserve’s Mill Pond and Pine Thicket (Fox Neck Limited Partnership).  Course terrain is varied and natural with slight hills, partial sandy or pine straw-covered footing, some foot-grabbing roots and the potential for mud if the weather is or has been inclement.  Optional jingle bells will be provided!

Proceeds benefit historic Poplar Grove Plantation, a non-profit public charity dedicated to conservation, education, and preservation.
