Upcoming events (4+)
Beautiful hike on the rugged trails 4.5 miles, ending on the paved paths through the flower gardens and around the lake with hundreds of peonies. (Add an extra mile or two at whatever pace you like) The Arboretum is in full spring bloom.
The model train section is really cool too!

Pay your entry fee at the entry shed, go right to the front gate, then go left 50 yards to the Shelter. We'll start on the short paved path with sculptures, then hit the rugged trails.
This hike will have a faster and slower group
Park in the Oak Shelter lot which is north of the boat ramp parking. Let’s take a hike at Black Hoof Park. We will hike to the dam and take the paved trail below and then back to the dirt trail and around for a total of 5 miles. See you there!
We will walk the paved trail West towards the big tree. This will be a moderately paced walk but go at your own pace and walk as far as you want. 2.5 miles out and 2.5 miles back.
