    Janelle Chiasera reviewed Lyon Arboretum Short Loop

    about 1 month ago

    This arboretum was incredible. We visited this arboretum in Mid -May. Highly recommend this trail as it was well manicured most of the way- a little tricky navigating up to the falls. Inspiration lookout was beautiful. The scents changed frequently and were incredible, ranging from wet jungle to fragrant foliage and flowers. The trails were well marked and traversed some of the most incredible plant collections I have seen. Well worth the visit and not too crowded . Very easy trail to navigate if you stay on the main trail. Highly recommend-you will feel as if you were in the jungle.

    Hiked this trail in Mid-May. Plumerias were in full bloom and incredibly fragrant. This was a garden with an extensive collection of plant material from around the world. The gravel trail was relatively well maintained. The cacti garden was stunning. The hike was easy, as labeled, and well worth the trip.

    Koko-insane! This is a stair master, not a trail. Too many people and too dangerous. If you think ascending is hard, wait for the descent!

    Beautiful garden, easy to walk with well manicured and groomed trails. Small, but packed full with beautiful nature.

    Rated it three stars because it is just too crowded. The upper half is a lot more slippery than the lower half. Next to no open vista views, the majority were jungle views. The jungle views were quite pretty. Due to the overuse, I recommend other trails over this one.

    Steady incline to the top with spectacular viewpoints along the entire hike. This is rated as “easy”; however, I (50 YO in good health) rate this as a moderate hike. The paved trail all the way to the top is nice, but can feel hot as the sun beats down on it (and you). Bring plenty of water. It took us approximately 1.0-1.5 hours to complete.

    Busy, but a nice walk down the beach. You will come upon a section that winds you around a few hotels. Not the nicest path there, but ok. Beautiful views.
