Scenic walk with views of downtown Boston. Went in winter even though nothing was bloomed and it was still pretty. Will definitely be back!

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.
