Absolutely gorgeous and fascinating place to visit. The 1-mile loop contains all of the trees we had wanted to see - massive Redwoods, Sequoias, Douglas Firs, etc. No charge to visit and was the most rewarding hour or two of our trip.

Take your choice of route through the Arboretum - 30 mins, to 2 hours and you can take several walks and enjoy the cool breeze in the glinting shade of the trees. The trees are marked so that you can remember their names - there...More
