This was a fun little place to stretch our legs. We have a 4 1/2 and a 1 1/2 year old and the boys loved looking around. The paths are well taken care of and there are some fun gardens too. Our boys pretended we were on a bear hunt - it's all what you make of it. We enjoyed it!

A true Brainerd / Baxter gem. Well worth the membership for walking, enjoying the beautiful gardens and walking trails.

This was a decent trail, but not a ton of wildlife and near roads throughout. There are some decent things to look at, but nothing spectacular.

We had a great hike at the arboretum. There are lots of trails and the fall leaves are beautiful right now. The lady that talked to us in the building was friendly and informative. She went over the trail map with us which was great! It's only $3 for non members and worth it! We saw squirrels, some yellow racer snakes and an awesome beaver nest. Don't panic about the snakes! I wouldn't have seen them but my daughter spotted them. They were on the edge of the trail and slithered away when we got too close. We were excited to see them! I would go again and again!

We just hiked through the arboretum last week and it was one of the high lights of our two and a half week trip to the Brainerd Lakes area. It is a delightful conservatory for wilderness species and gives you an idea of what the area was like before it was settled. The trails are really fun to hike on - although SANDY - so not easy, and could be challenging for anyone with walking issues. Of all the places we visited in the area, the arboretum was the buggy-est - so bring DEET.
Have fun!
