It's not free, but it's a great easy hike to do. I like taking the high trail on the way back. Just go over the bridge.

Loved this hike! What surprised us was it was $12 per adult and it was super busy! But totally worth it. We had our 3 year old and dog with us and they loved it!

I love BTA. Take a camera and take your time. Spring is amazing, but fall and winter are nice too. It's not unbearable in the summer if you get there early enough to be out before 9:30 or so.

Gorgeous park, has a little bit of everything. Trails not strenous for seasoned hikers but they are beautiful.

This place is gorgeous, well taken care of, and great for all ages (and your furry pals too) most the plants are labeled which was actually one of my favorite parts. The staff were incredible. Awesome place.

Really great fairly easy scenic hike. Be sure to take the "high trail" which offers great views overlooking the arboretum. Wonderful time.

One of the most beautiful arboretum ever. More of a family stroll than a hike. A must see for any plant or bird lover!

Great place to spend a couple hours when you want to get out of town without going on a long trip. The staff was very friendly and the trails are well maintained. They have lots of little sections with small trails to look at different plants or you can stick to the main trail along he outskirts. They also had a nice butterfly garden and pretty lake, where we actually took Christmas pictures one year. It was moderately busy when we went on a Sat in Nov. Dog friendly and we did see both a coyote and a tarantula while we were there. I'd love to go back soon.
