‪Love the nature trail. It’s a challenging walk and just beautiful. Be sure to park in the visitor lot or you will get a ticket!‬

‪I love driving over to the college to take my dog for a walk. We always run into other dog walkers on the trails but there is no off leash area so that is a bummer. I have been there while the kids are practicing for track and they are sometimes rude and take up the whole path, but it is their college so I get out of their way. Beautiful in the fall! Parking can be a hassle, don't park in the lot... you will get a ticket!!‬

‪It is a pleasure to walk the Haverford Trail any time of year, sharing it with the vigorous young and the more deliberate elders, all in pursuit of health and relaxation. On a recent walk I noticed that the reconstruction of the Magill Library is making steady progress and that trees in the surrounding area don’t seem to mind the copious amounts of dust everywhere. If alone, one needs distraction on these walks and my latest was to count the US states on license plates of the cars parked nearby belonging to students and staff. I didn’t see “North Dakota” or “Idaho” but California, Washington, Kentucky, Colorado and even Hawaii had traveled east to park at Haverford College. And of course there were plenty of Pennsylvania, Maryland, New York and New Jersey license plates. I was also glad to see that the Monkey Puzzle Tree with it formidable thorns continues to thrive in its sheltered corner near the Fine Arts building and had grown by about a foot.

Enjoy your autumn walk.‬

‪The Haverford College is a great walk or run, however areas of the path expose large tree roots and rocks that are easy to trip over or stumble on. The path needs some mulch or maintenance.‬

‪Really great Arboretum at Haverford College!. We have enjoyed it and the grounds all the years of my daughter at college as well as years afterward. Great path and running trail all around the perimeter of the grounds. Pond is special as well.‬

‪Haverford College is on of the only colleges with an arboretum. Several hundred trees are marked with placards, including many state champion trees and a great grand child of the Penn Treaty Elm. Be sure to get a copy of the walking tour of the arboretum from the clear lucite box that’s attached to a sample sign by the big parking lot in the back, and between the back of the new gym and the side of the Ira Reid House.‬

‪Even on cold days I prefer the trails of the Haverford College Arboretum to any other asphalted trail in the neighborhood. Most recently I decided to stop near the Marshall Fine Arts Building, located not too far from the large parking lot, and to take a closer look at 2 sculptures I had passed by many times. Not surprisingly I had a first-hand lesson in art history.

The two sculptures in question are Tony Smith’s “Night,” facing the entrance of the Fine Arts building, and Ernest Shaw’s “Construction for Outdoors No.10,” near a side wall of the building.

Smith’s “Night” draws immediate attention by its large weatherbeaten geometric assembly, steel painted black form, firmly situated on the ground and every day surrounded by Haverford students rushing to their assignments. A quick check on Tony Smith’s oeuvre informs that this is one of 4 “Night” sculptures (1962) that are now in private and public collections. By inclination and training Smith was an architect, sculptor, painter, and educator (1912-80), considered one of American minimalism’s pioneers. Having stopped long enough to look at “Night,” I now see why this sculpture commands more than just passing attention.

Ernest Shaw’s Construction for Outdoors No 10 is quieter, almost contemplative and elegantly simple. Smaller in size than Smith’s “Night” and without a catching title, the plaque of this sculpture tells us that this was a gift to Haverford College by a private foundation from Allentown, Pa. This begs the question: Who is Ernie/Ernest Shaw? His biography explains that he began his career as a psychiatrist and later switched to art “as a vehicle of self-expression,” exploring different mediums and techniques and challenging the fundamental concepts of balance, composition, gravity, compression and expansion. No. 10 reflects this exploration. Enjoy your walk!‬

‪Just blocks from crowded Main Line Haverford offers free parking and country setting among wooded trails around the campus, Public welcome and an inexpensive cafeteria on site make this a perfect fall escape.‬
