Beautiful botanical garden that is somewhat of a hidden gem in the area. Great all year - I’ve gone in December and January and had a nice walk but also amazing in spring and summer when the plants are blooming. More of a walk than a hike.

Nature trips

A nice, peaceful oasis tucked away in the heart of built up Fayetteville. We saw some beautiful wildlife (an eastern racer that startled my wife). Keep in mind that it is $10 a person for entry. Quite large considering the surrounding built up area. They also have quite a few events throughout the month. Overall, a fun afternoon excursion.

Beautiful Trail, lots of plants and info. Not really a fitness trail. More of a commercial business. If you had a membership to the gardens, this would be a more scenic option that walking the mall...
