We kinda stumbled upon this place but we're glad we did. It's part of Tuckahoe State Park but it's run as a separate nonprofit. They charge $5 for admission but it's well worth it. A nice map is provided that shows lots of well marked...More

Wonderful trails and beautiful forested landscapes. While off the beaten path to find, Adkins Arboretum is special in part because of that location. Parking and access is easy. The visitor center is outstanding and the staff is both knowledgable and friendly. The trails are well...More

My husband and I walk our dogs here almost every week. We find it peaceful and enjoyable. Four miles of trails through beautiful woods and meadows. Always something new to see whether it's new plants in bloom or woodland creatures. You never know what you'll...More

This place was an amazing find! for 5 bucks you get a beautiful hike while listening to a fascinating tape of the experiences of runaway slaves who passed through the area on their way to freedom. Excellent presentation!

Wonderful natural area and arboretum in which we were almost alone on a beautiful summer day. The trails through both meadows and woods are well-maintained and flanked by well-interpreted trees, shrubs, and perennials. Sculpture, organic and creative, appears at random. Streams wander through the woodland...More

I have been a member of this wonderful small Arboretum for about a decade. The grounds are a great place to walk in the woods, alongside a small creek. There is a fine little gift shop and an awesome native plant nursery. The Arboretum also...More
