Once privately owned and enjoyed exclusively by Aiken's storied winter colony set, Hitchcock Woods is now owned by the Hitchcock Woods Foundation, a nonprofit organization that makes the Woods available to the community. This nearly 2,100-acre longleaf pine forest has 70 miles of marked trails available to hikers, runners, equestrians, and carriage drivers. Hitchcock Woods is home to the rustic Aiken Horse Show in early April, one of the oldest annual horse shows in the country. The Festival of the Woods is held each year in September.
