  • With multiple possible hikes in this area, you walk through a beautiful mossy forest even in the dead of winter. 10/10 recommend anytime of year.
  • After checking out the arboretum trails, I highly recommend the section 36 loop, right next door in the forest. You'll get a much more challenging hike with just as much lovely scenery around.
  • Beautiful place to hike. I’ve been here twice and it is always a joy. Short and long trails, creeks, and a lake view.
  • Many nice forested trails to hike, both flat and hilly. A pond for dogs to play in.
  • Very easy hiking trails. Lots of beautiful views of you take the Banzai trail. The Section 36 and Powder House trails have gorgeous views as well. Not many people in the summer time.
