Welcoming nature-enthused visitors since 1931, The Holden Arboretum pulses with cheerful bird songs, more than 120,000 plants, and 20-plus miles of forest trails throughout its 3,600 acres. Trail maps highlight the 12 undulating paths to peruse, such as the Old Valley trail, the Woodland trail, and the Strong Acres trail, the last of which famously bench-presses the other trails after visiting hours have ended. Amble through any of a dozen gardens to glimpse lilacs, wildflowers, birds, and butterflies; traipse along Corning Lake’s shores; or knit a hat out of rhododendron leaves for winter-bound chipmunks. The Warren H. Corning Library houses a plethora of periodicals on local wildlife and botany, inviting nature scholars to search for names and pictures of the flora and fauna encountered on their strolls.

The Holden Arboretum

More than 120,000 species of trees, wildflowers, and native plants take root across The Holden Arboretum’s 3,600 acres of themed gardens and natural terrain. As birds chirp overhead and butterflies binge on nectar plants, visitors make their way across 12 gardens on guided tours or leisurely strolls. The most intrepid wanderers can spend a full day attempting to navigate more than 20 miles of trails that wind through a rhododendron garden, a mature beech-maple forest, and a waterfowl observation blind. Guides facilitate a more focused experience during forest explorations and home landscaping sessions, the latter of which demonstrate how to add a lifelike smile to topiary sculptures of the mailman. The arboretum also hosts numerous lecture series, youth programs, and special events such as Fridays in the Garden, where light refreshments accompany presentations or walks with horticultural experts.
