Beautiful property with 650 contiguous acres and 17 miles of hiking trails. The Arboretum’s collections include rare plant specimens, ancient trees and historic buildings. Walks are on level trails, and there are quiet trails away from the crowds as well as the more populated trails where families tend to visit, because of the unusual tree houses constructed throughout. The only disappointment was the structure advertised as a 'butterfly house'....basically a clear structure with a few plants and only one butterfly in the entire thing. I've been to others where there were swarms of butterflies, so this was the only let-down in our visit. There is a fee, but I used a Groupon offer for half price at the time. You can join as a member and have unlimited visits, and if you live nearby, you might enjoy having access to it at your convenience. We were there this summer, but i would love to come back in late spring when more things would be in bloom there.
