Does anyone know of a map to these woods — the one with the chimney from an old cabin, an empty grotto and a super-sized Jesus statue?

Does the place even have a name? My tickling of the Google has not been fruitful.

The name "Valley of Silence" I think applies to part of that area, but not the entire woods. Good question.

As a former CSS employee I spent many lunch hours walking the beautiful trails.  Here are more photos from the area you are talking about which is part of the St Scholastica Monastery grounds.  I agree with TIMK check with a  num :) at the Monastery.

It is referred to as the Valley of Silence for the whole woods when on campus.  I saw a map of it once when I was a student there 7 years ago, but from my personal explorations, that map was hardly complete.
