You may know The North Carolina Arboretum for its famous sculpted gardens or award-winning bonsai exhibitions, but did you know the 434-acre campus also features 10 miles of manicured walking paths + 13 unique trails?

From immersive forest journeys and casual garden strolls to bike rides and challenging hikes, these routes offer a wide range of experiences for all levels of accessibility and physical ability.

Bonus: Most trails start or end at an idyllic destination (we’re partial to Willow Pond).
