We walked to the arboretum from Tuckahoe State Park. I recommend driving there and saving your energy to walk around their facility. There's lots to look at. They have a demonstration area, goats, vegetable garden, and nicely paved trails just to name a few. Their...More

I love going out to Adkins. Stroll the trails, visit the goats, learn about gardening from a perspective of native plants. BUT, my favorite thing is the breadth of programs! Gardening for sure, but the arts, making festive centerpieces, nature walk and soup lunches, dog...More

This place was an amazing find! for 5 bucks you get a beautiful hike while listening to a fascinating tape of the experiences of runaway slaves who passed through the area on their way to freedom. Excellent presentation!
