Trip Report

Pros: 
Extensive trail access. Viewpoints. Wildflowers.
Cons: 
Pay-to-park.

The Washington Park's Hoyt Arboretum was founded in 1928 with a mission to conserve endangered species and educate the community. This ridge-top arboretum includes 187 acres and 12 miles of hiking trails. Along the trails (two of which are suitable for wheelchairs) you will find a plant collection containing 10,000 individual trees and shrubs representing approximately 1,000 species from around the world.  Although Hoyt Arboretum is relatively young, it possesses the largest group of distinct species of any arboretum in the U.S.

In addition to the expansive hiking trails, the arboretum has a visitor center, an indoor classroom with seating for 40 people, a large picnic shelter, and a meadow. Since the 1970s, volunteers have provided tours that begin at the visitor center. Park hours are 5:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., and the visitor center parking lot and access roads close at 10:00 p.m.

I wish all trees and shrubs came with signs identifying them like they do here. I love the Hoyt Arboretum because there is such a wide variety of plants to see and learn about on the many different trails.
