This is a beautiful place for easy to medium level hiking. It is located near the Coliseum, and a walk in the arboretum is always refreshing. The trees are labeled providing an educational experience also. If you want to spend a couple of hours with nature and not drive far away this is the ideal place.

A wonderful place to take a leisurely walk. Parking is somewhat limited and remember as you start down the pathway from the parking lot that you will need to walk back up that hill too.

It is a nice little walk that shows some local plant life and if you're lucky maybe some local wildlife.

So many different trees labeled! Interesting to learn what they are and where they grow. Totally free adventure. The trails and grass are kept up and in good shape for walking. Would make for a great picnic area. The ampitheater is neat. Unfortunately the flowers are not in bloom at this time but it was lovely nonetheless. Middle of the city forest! :-)

My only disappointment is I didn't visit sooner. I only lived in Morgantown for a few years but visit several times a year. I love trees, and this is the place to go for trees! We onlly visited the 3 acres of "lawn" planted with specimen trees (skipped the steep trails that lead to the river). It was so beautiful and peaceful. The rhododendron were in bloom and were just amazing. My favorite tree was the dawn redwood. This place is easily missed but look for it and give it a try if you want to spend some time in nature or feel the need to hug a tree.
