Kind of out of the way at the end of a dirt road. It's on the small side but not the worst then you have this sort that I have visited. The staff was friendly and accommodating but there's just not a lot to do. They don't offer any kind of food or libation so you can stretch out your visit unless you bring a sack lunch

I went to the Arboretum on Sunday for a wine tasting event. It sounded good and I figure to see the place. It turn out to be the a waste of time. They had maybe four winery's there for the event for about hundred of people. Long lines (45 minutes or so) to get a sip of wine. Either they should have had more wineries show up or have more people pouring the wine. The only good thing that day was the weather was nice, and real good view of San Franciscans Peaks,

Hardly and plants, lots of "construction" it's mostly dirt. Save yourself the money and go on one of the hiking trails, way more fun, beautiful, more plants and more of everything. I wasted a lot of money here. It sucked.

There were nothing really in bloom when we arrived but we walked it anyway. The peacefulness was the great thing for me. They have tours and all the folks are really nice. The best thing about I was the green house and the free seeds to bring home. It looked to be beautiful when in full bloom..

The Arboretum's greenhouses were filled with rows of identical starter plants, little of interest or the unusual there. The butterfly house is nice, but we only saw three types of butterflies in it. Trails are walkable and covered in bark, making them comfortable underfoot. Some interesting sculptures and some tagging of plants here and there. Mostly, this just seems like a somewhat nicer walk in the forest. Boyce Arboretum is a more spectacular version, but you'll have a nice time here if you're already in Flagstaff.
