  • If you have a little extra time when in CH you should spend it at the Botanical Garden. They have a good gift shop and rotating art, etc but the walk through the garden is worth your time.  more »

  • Visited for the nighttime Winter Wonderland event while in Chapel Hill on vacation. The gardens were really pretty lit up with Christmas lights. We had a nice time wandering the low-lit trails, sipping hot coffee, in the cold weather. It felt very festive! Purchased several pieces by local artisans in the gift shop - a necklace and a piece of pottery. I am glad we made time to visit during this special event!
  • The botanical gardens are cool, but the real gem is the hiking trails behind the garden! Hiked for an hour and didn’t see another person out on the trails— though I was there on a weekday.
  • Wonderful gardens, educational center, and old forest trails to walk on nearby. Also, plants for sale and interesting gifts in the gift shop.
  • Lovely place. Unfortunately, it's a bit heavily travelled now, so not a good place to reliably be alone in the woods. Also, despite clear signs prohibiting it, too many visitors let their dogs off leash. I've had dogs co e at me several times here by owners who don't seem to care.
  • I know you're wondering about this place but I don't think I've been here?
