Visited a bit too early in the season for many of the plants to be blooming but enjoyed the trails and identifying plants that we were not accustomed to seeing back in Missouri. It is a fairly compact place to stroll around through the forest and meadows so is a good place to let the kids run free.

The Arboretum at Flagstaff is a great area to enjoy the Ponderosa Pine Forest. The trees are tall with cinnamon colored bark. Locals say the smells are vanilla scented in season.

This was a wonderful experience! Really enjoyed the trail walk through the property. Many beautiful plants, in a wonderful location. Also enjoyed the greenhouses!

If you are a zen, commune with nature person or a super serious botany lover, then this place if for you. If you are a casual nature lover, then it's just a nice walk with pretty trees, nothing special. We actually enjoyed driving further down the dirt road more, and enjoyed walking around and seeing a bit of wildlife.

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
