Visited a bit too early in the season for many of the plants to be blooming but enjoyed the trails and identifying plants that we were not accustomed to seeing back in Missouri. It is a fairly compact place to stroll around through the forest...More

The Arboretum at Flagstaff is a great area to enjoy the Ponderosa Pine Forest. The trees are tall with cinnamon colored bark. Locals say the smells are vanilla scented in season.

Hardly and plants, lots of "construction" it's mostly dirt. Save yourself the money and go on one of the hiking trails, way more fun, beautiful, more plants and more of everything. I wasted a lot of money here. It sucked.
