Come hike one of the most amazing gardens!
Come check out all the fall foliage before the leaves fall off! The colors are amazing!
More than 4, 000 plants and flowers are on display at the University of California, Davis, Arboretum in 18 collections and gardens. If you want to learn about the flora in California’s biozones, a few hours among these magnificent gardens and collections will satisfy your interest. The UC Davis Arboretum Trail winds peacefully along an interstate highway and city streets. On this hike, you will be walking through fragrant lavender, rosemary, and other herbs growing on both sides of the Mediterranean Collection along Putah Creek Lagoon. The trail is paved, so we don't have to worry about getting stuck in the mud. Since it is paved it is stroller, wagon and handicap friendly.
The trail is 3.5 miles long. There are many shorter routes to take if you or your kids don't not wish to hike that long.
Bring a lunch and enjoy the beautiful scenery!
