Today at hayes arboretum:  Unique Experiences
TeePeeToday the Arboretum holds many intriguing natural characteristics and unique points of interest. The 466 acres of woodlands, meadows, swamps, and streams make this an ideal place to explore the wonderment of nature and to gain an appreciation of our natural heritage. There are hiking trails that take you through the heart of a mature Beech-Maple Forest; others take you thorough our Native Woody Plant Preserve or along a trickling stream.

For those who prefer to visit by car, we also have a beautiful driving tour that directs you on a two-mile drive throughout the property. Remember, the Auto Tour is always free of charge to members.
