Scenic Hiking and Nature Trails


Explore History and Nature with Day Hiking

With acres and acres of wooded property, there are many trails to explore at Historic Banning Mills.

As you hike along the old town roads, Creek Indian paths, and old water raceways, one can feel generations of the past envelope you. Hike along Snake Creek, explore the ruins of the paper mill and walk on actual water raceways. Trails range from mild to moderately strenuous.

Please be aware that we are NOT a Park. To explore our trail systems, one must be a registered guest either at the inn or on one of our adventure treks or at our RV park.

We DO NOT allow pets onto the property at any time. Please do not bring your pets!

If you wish to walk the trails and are not a registered guest, there is a $7 per person maintenance fee/ donation and you must sign in at the front desk! Proceeds go to keeping this historic area in pristine condition.

It is recommended to call ahead of time to ensure that the trails will be open the day you wish to come by.

Bridges of Banning

Our trails don't just stay on the ground! We have many suspension bridges you can cross to get amazing views of Snake Creek Gorge and our beautiful conservation land.
