Very disappointed with our visit to the Arboretum in Flagstaff for several reasons. First of all, access to this locations takes you on a 3 mile rough gravel road. It is very bumpy and I agree with the description as "a washboard road". Remember it is a 6 mile round trip. Secondly, the $6 senior rate was not worth the... More

The arboretum has a lot of different areas with information about various habitats, with perennial, herb, pond and pine tree trails. A welcome respite from the heat of Phoenix, but a bit of a drive. I enjoyed it, but I would expect spring/early summer to be more interesting than when I visited, end of September.

I love the Arboretum! Different plants/flowers in the seasons. Lots of good ideas on what to grow in Flagstaff. Gardening isn't always the easiest, especially if you live in the Fort Lewis area. But the absolute BEST part of the Arboretum is the FREE FLIGHT OF THE RAPTORS!! There are numerous raptors, but you never know which ones will come... More

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.
