The loop distance around the Arboretum is approximately 1.4 miles of gradual declines and inclines. Short distances from the paths are benches where visitors can relax and enjoy the scenery. The main trail is a gravel road with a few significant slopes which can be challenging for anyone with disabilities.
Please remember that no pets or active sports are allowed, and re-claimed water is used for irrigation, so do not drink or play in the water. There is a portable restroom available at the barn at the south end of the Arboretum and there are public restrooms available at the golf course clubhouse at the north end. There is no drinking water available on the site.
