Summary

Come on along for a spectacular spring hike through the always scenic Arnold Arboretum.  Beginning at the main entrance, our amazing hike will take us throughout the entire preserve for about 5 miles.  Early spring is the absolute best time to experience the glorious, natural wonders of this really special place - the azaleas and lilacs will be in full bloom (or almost!), wild flowers will be abundant and the trees will be bursting with life.  The Arboretum is a 300-acre treasure operated by Harvard University (great 1000 year lease!) on land owned by the City of Boston. It's a National Historic Landmark, and it's one of the finest examples of design by the renowned landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted (think Central Park!).  Please wear your good hiking shoes & warm layered clothes and bring a liter of water.  After our fabulous hike, we'll have an option to head over to nearby & happening Jamaica Plain center for some schmoozing over an early dinner with drinks.  Steady rain cancels. 

Directions To Trailhead Parking Lot

We'll meet at 12:00 noon at the main entrance to the Arnold Arboretum at 125 Arborway, Boston, MA 02130.  You can use that address for Google Maps and GPS.  Parking is free along the main road (Arborway) and on nearby neighborhood streets.  It's a 10 minute walk from the Forest Hills Station of the MBTA's Orange Line.  We'll meet on the road area directly in front of the brick Adminstration/Bussey Building, which is just inside the main gate at the right.
