Beautiful snowshoe adventure! Trails very well marked but NOT all passable without snowshoes. One trail was uncovered for foot hikers. No restrooms available. Would definitely return in the summer for a new adventure.

A nice place to stroll around
Oct 2020
This is a great place for an easy hike to be amongst the trees and woods. We really enjoyed being here. Allow about 90 minutes.
We saw the most unusual mushroom growth here just off the trails

A wonderful place to visit
Oct 2020
This magnificent arboretum is well laid out. It has flowers as well as trees and many specimens are labeled. In October, the trees were on fire with color. There are hiking trails. We didn’t leave enough time (2 and 1/2 hours) so we couldn’t do all the hiking we wanted. Be sure to hike to the hidden marsh, it was almost magical. The hiking was mostly flat through thick forest. There are lots of photo opportunities here. A real gem.

worth stopping
Oct 2020
There was still colors, life among the variety of plants, all kinds of pine trees, roses, and plants I had not seen anywhere else.
There is a nice stream of water to sit and reflect . Some played hide and seek with their children. We had a good time walking, sitting, admiring the short maze.

Beautiful Scenery and some interesting learning opportunities
Jul 2020
Silly me for not realizing an arboretum is essential a tree park. So I was expecting something a little more, but it was still beautiful nonetheless. All the trees are marked so if you are fan of trees, it's a nice feature. There are a couple of hiking trails. Nothing strenuous/up hill at all. You can bring a dog to designated spots. I chose to stay in the West Meadow close to the pond with all the lily pads and I literally fell asleep for a couple of hours under one of the trees by the pond. it was a beautiful day at a beautiful park.

A taste of Heaven
Jul 2020
This place was the primary reason I took my family to the Catskills from NYC, and I was not disappointed. My entire family adored this place. What a gem! It was literally like we were in Heaven. My 3 young children had an incredible time. From the spiral to the tadpole-filled pond to fairy land, we were all entranced. A big thank you to the people who made this place possible.

The Arboretum is worth a visit. The views of the surrounding area are nice and my personal favorite is the Fairy Garden. You can relax or take a walk through any time of year to experience the beauty of the Catskills.

Easy hike, gorgeous boardwalk, no flowers
Apr 2018 • Couples
I enjoyed this arboretum but was disappointed by the lack of diversity in plants. I had hoped for some interesting flowering trees, but instead got a leisurely hike and a cool boardwalk. Very peaceful experience. It wasn't on top of a mountain, so not sure why it is called Mountaintop, but I'd recommend it if you're looking for an easy hike with a pretty view. Also great that it is free :)

We parked in the paved area on the right after the entrance, walked for ~10 minutes, then did the Black Spruce Glen section (total of maybe 50 minutes with photos). We went down to the boardwalk which was GORGEOUS and not crowded at all (we were the only people there) which made it even better. We are intermediate hikers and found this easy -- but wear the right footwear! Depending how much you want to do, I'd recommend anywhere from 45 min to 2 hours

Not what i expected
Oct 2017 • Couples
I went based on the high trip advisor reviews but I was disappointed by the amount of private development in and around the arboretum. It doesn't give the land a feeling of a nature sanctuary. I admit I did not take the long walk around so maybe that is better. But having to walk past huge private homes and a chipmunk that had clearly been run over by a vehicle kind of ruined it.
