Accompanied Walks are held from time to time as weather and classes permit. Located close to WVU coliseum and Creative Art Center. Park in coliseum parking lot and walk to arboretum. Lovely in the Spring and Fall. Fall gives peeks of the Mon River.

Very well maintained, peaceful hiking with easy to medium trails which cross the rail trail and go to the river. I live in Morgantown and enjoy the arboretum in all seasons.

We spent a couple of hours here and it is a very nice place to visit. The trails are overall in good shape. Some of them are strenuous so be prepared if you choose to go down to the river. But, the hike is worth the trip!

I love going here in the spring and the fall to gaze at the wonders of nature. Great selection of plants and trees to look at.

This is a beautiful place for easy to medium level hiking. It is located near the Coliseum, and a walk in the arboretum is always refreshing. The trees are labeled providing an educational experience also. If you want to spend a couple of hours with nature and not drive far away this is the ideal place.

A wonderful place to take a leisurely walk. Parking is somewhat limited and remember as you start down the pathway from the parking lot that you will need to walk back up that hill too.

It is a nice little walk that shows some local plant life and if you're lucky maybe some local wildlife.

So many different trees labeled! Interesting to learn what they are and where they grow. Totally free adventure. The trails and grass are kept up and in good shape for walking. Would make for a great picnic area. The ampitheater is neat. Unfortunately the flowers are not in bloom at this time but it was lovely nonetheless. Middle of the... More

My only disappointment is I didn't visit sooner. I only lived in Morgantown for a few years but visit several times a year. I love trees, and this is the place to go for trees! We onlly visited the 3 acres of "lawn" planted with specimen trees (skipped the steep trails that lead to the river). It was so beautiful... More

The arboretum is a wonderful collection of trees, flowers, and wildlife right in the heart of Morgantown, WV. There are a number of different routes to take, so the length varies depending on which twist or turn you decide to encroach upon. There are some small streams, old bridges, an old ampitheater, and various other things to see here, and... More
