Please use caution when crossing New Scotland Road to Pine Hollow Road. Bike racks are also available at the arboretum. s your drive down Pine Hollow Road you will see a Visitor Kiosk on your right side with trail maps, brochures and other information.
Suggested Attire: Please dress prepared for the outdoors. As with any outdoor space, depending on the season, ticks and mosquitos may be present. We recommend long pants tucked into socks and closed-toe shoes. The grounds of the arboretum tend to be very wet and muddy in the spring and following rainy weather. The Arboretum is managed as a natural environment and patches of poison ivy are present in the landscape. Please stay on the trails and lawn areas to prevent encounters with this indigenous plant.
Fees: Admission to the arboretum is FREE and open to the public 365 days a year, from dawn until dusk. We have a suggested donation of $5/per person to help us to continue to maintain our trees, trails, and grounds for the benefit of all. Feel free to contribute to the donation box posted by the kiosk.
Canine Visitors: Dogs on leashes are welcome to enjoy the trails and grounds at the arboretum. For the safety of other visitors (both human and canine) and wildlife, please keep your dog on a leash.

Visitor's Center: Currently, the Visitor's Center is not open to the public. We are in the process of transforming our founder’s private residence into a wonderful space for both arboretum and community activities.
