Natural Areas

The Miami University Natural Areas are located around the campus and they comprise over 1000 acres with 17 miles of hiking trails. Visitors can hike, jog, research, birdwatch, dog walk, explore, learn, discover, meditate, or “just be.” We encourage you to make these areas an important and regular part of your Miami experience.
