Explore on Your Own

Visitors are welcome to visit the Arboretum every day from dawn to dusk. We hope that you, your family and friends can make a visit to the Arboretum at least once each season, whether you stroll along gravel paths around the display gardens or hike our rustic forest trails. Arboretum maps are available at our information kiosks or you may print off the map.
