“Fantastic Arboretum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

Beautiful gardens, interested staff, just a great place to visit. If you enjoy outdoors and nature then this is the place for you. After getting your full day fill of this wonderful experience, remember that you are in Asheville. Great fun in a great city.

“Breathing, learning, walking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

Terrific place to unwind with a hike (several options) or to wander the exhibits, both
outside and in.

We love the arboretum. Join and visit all the time.

“Lot's of trails”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

This is a great place to hike. If you are cheap and want to utilize the trails you can park at the Bent creek trails and hike form there which joins the Arboretum's trail system. It is worth the price of admission though.

“Can't wait to go back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

We only found out about this place after we got here for a 2 day getaway. It was great even on a nice day in March. We are looking forward to returning when the gardens are in bloom.
