Hiking trails

Rust Sanctuary is criss-crossed by a number of hiking trails that explore the property. Rust Sanctuary is surrounded by six habitats that are home to native birds and woodland creatures, flowers, trees, fields, a pond and even a vernal pool. The several miles of trails explore the numerous habitats for viewing the many types of plants and wildlife that call the sanctuary home.
