If you come, you’ll want to bring bug spray and hiking boots (it can be muddy) and watch out for poison ivy. The hiking trails are fairly easy, although there are a few steep spots. The grounds are open daily from dawn until dusk, 365 days a year, with no admission fee (there’s a suggested donation for non-members of $5/person; $15/family). Dogs are allowed on a leash only. Trail maps are in the kiosk at the parking area.

Check the web site for their sales of rare and unusual plants in the spring and fall, as well as lectures, workshops, concerts and family activities.
