Beautiful in the summer with all the wildflowers blooming! Sometimes you will see deer roaming around . When they have the Hawk and Eagle shows it is super great

We were passing time until our plane left. Very good staff, lovely grounds, nice variety in plants, good programs and raptor talk. Geared for the plant lover, not so much the spouse along for the ride. The road leading in is level but unpaved red dirt (the kind all over the southwest) and we had to wash the rental car... More

The arboretum has much to offer - especially educational opportunities to teach youngsters how to be good stewards of planet earth. My husband and I went when the demonstration gardens were in bloom and they were lovely. The greenhouse offers many learning opportunities for learning how to grow plants without pesticides. The only downside - the 3 miles of dirt... More

Visited here today on our weekend trip to Flagstaff. The drive in was a little hairy, long bumpy road but once there it was a truly enjoyable experience. The docent was very knowledgeable and entertaining. The views were amazing. nice hiking trails.

Having turned off route 66 we were confronted with an unmade VERY BUMPY Road for the next 3-4 miles.NOTHING ON THE BROCHURE WARNS YOU. Those with rental cars please consider this as any damage to the underneath of the car is your responsibility. How my teeth stayed in I will never know. We eventually made it to the car park...

We do many family trips to Flagstaff and the surrounding areas. When I have a chance to be alone I love to come here. My idea of heaven is grabbing a great sandwich from somewhere in flag and then having a private picnic lunch all by myself at the Arboretum. I love to spend the day walking around and discovering...

Best time to this place is during the Fall/Spring. Closed during the Winter months. During the Fall, this place is just blooming with beautiful different kinds of plants and an informative Biology building will keep young ones occupied. Around Halloween, they have a Pumpkin walk.

The tour was exceptional. I learned so much about the local plants and how the Indians used many of them for medicinal purposes. We enjoyed walking on the trails around the place.

So we were on route 66 going west when we saw the sign for the Flagstaff Arboretum. Thought we'd give it a try. Should have known better when I saw the dirt road. Four miles down made for a very bumpy ride, but we figured it would be worth it. Paid our $8 each and went outside. Um, really? A... More

We took a guided tour which was very worthwhile. A volunteer took us around and told us a lot of really interesting facts about the work that is being carried out at the arboretum. Although there were few flowers out we found plenty to enjoy including the Raptor show.
