Nice walk outside but the claim of hiking is not valid. Yeah, you can walk around some paths for a bit but it's NOT hiking. After the long drive down a very very poor road a bit disappointing.

This is a beautiful area and I love their mission, but I feel like the price should be lowered a bit. Okay with a stroller... But you only get about 1 mile of walking in. The views of the Peaks are beautiful.

Everything was dead and the grounds were not kept up at all. I know September wasn't the best months to come, but I didn't tempest such a mess. The place is also tiny. The pond is disgusting and the playground is tiny. It's a tire swing and a sand pit. If it was cheaper and a better time of year... More

Interesting experience. I think if this was $5 less per person I'd come away from it a little happier. The raptor/bird show was fun, but the rest was pretty average.

Bucolic grounds. Lots of hummingbirds feeding. Nicely laid out for a stroll. Unique gift shop items. Plan to spend an hour; two if you sit awhile or walk the extended trail. The bird show is nice.

A wonderful place, off the beaten trail in flagstaff. A wonderful trail through the trees, bushes and flowers of Northern AZ. Also the presentation of Eagles, Owls, hawks, etc of predator birds that have been rescued.

This place is in the middle of nowhere but there is a reason why. It’s not an attraction to say, it’s a research area with some public areas included. The “road” that has been reported as uncomfortable. There a people out there that are over sensitive to some things. It’s a dirt road which is very drive able. Its bumpy... More

The Arboretum itself was interesting, but very, very small. They do have a raptor show, but we were unable to stay long enough to see it. It only took about an hour to tour the arboretum and that included stopping to take pictures periodically. The Terrible rating is because to get to the Arboretum, you have to travel 6 miles... More

This is a fabulous place to commune with nature. It is worth the drive on the three miles of bumpy dirt road it takes to get there. We did, however sign the petition to pave that road!
