Dawes is very beautiful this time of year. The trails are great. Make sure you visit the Japanese Garden. The maple service experience is very cool. They have free samples and lots of great info on the history of maple service.

They do a lot of free and cheap educational events. The history of the people who began the place is given in a tour of the historical home on sight. Its a great outdoor walk and very educational. Too many trees and plants to mention!! Arbor Day is awesome!

if I could build a house here I would never leave. dawes is so beautiful, peaceful and educational. so many plant and animals to see it's impossible to really enjoy it all in one day. I would go more often if I lived closer. if I lived closer however, like I said before I would never leave.

My husband and I stopped here on our way to a weekend getaway in March and the salamanders were hatching by the dozens right before our eyes............I have never seen anything like it. Amazing.
