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.

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.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed a recent visit to The Arboretum at Flagstaff. The Arboretum, only a few miles from the city of Flagstaff itself, provided a wonderful opportunity to learn about the flora and fauna of what is called the Colorado Plateau. The Arboretum uses its natural Ponderosa Pine forest setting, green houses, gardens, and mini-museum exhibition room... More

I was in Flagstaff over Memorial Day, but at 7000 ft. elevation there isn't much blooming in the spring. Go in July and August!

We visited quite early in the morning and had the place to ourself. We enjoyed the landscape, the animals and birds, and the quietness of the place.

We took the gardens tour and learned quite a bit about the native flora and fauna. The raptor show was amazing - funny and also quite educational - not to be missed.

After celebrating our daughter's graduation from NAU Saturday we had to get outside for the sunny day. We were lucky enough to have looked up the docent tour time and then enjoyed the raptor show. We learned more than we thought, since we have been to several raptor shows a various zoos. We also learned about the area climate that... More

Make sure you check their website for which months/days they are open. We were there mid-June. We were looking for something to do to enjoy the outdoors. This hit the spot. The admission was reasonable and right when we got there a tour was starting. I wasn’t expecting much but the docent was very informative. We learned so much that... More
