Take a break from the urban life and escape to this arboretum for some solitude among the various tree species This guide covers all the major areas of interest within the Arnold Arboretum located just south of Boston in the Forest HIlls area of Jamaica Plain. This is a great place to go if you want to escape into peaceful surroundings. There are a lot of interpretive signs about the many species of plants you will discover along the walk. Make sure to stop at the visitor center at the main gate and also check out the informative links I have attached to this guide.

Beautiful and easy. It's more of a walk than a hike but the area is gorgeous. Perfect for a Sunday morning!

I've been going here since I was a child. For nature walks, bike rides and picnics. Now I bring my children. I love this place.

I've hiked in the Arboretum multiple times. There are several different landscapes and you there are pretty views on top of the hills, which aren't difficult to summit.
