Peaceful walk through nature with interesting signage about nature. We visited in October but I feel would be much better in the spring when many of the plants would be blooming.

Beautiful, peaceful, special place. A little out of the way but not far from Tannersville,
in the Catskill Mountains in a very secluded area. On the way you will pass some beautiful historic homes.

Tree's and more tree's. Nice for a casual stroll, but you're not seeing anything you haven't seen all over the county

very nice gardens. It was a nice spring day and had a pleasant walk with my wife. Walked through the trails in the woods on the other side of the gardens.

Easy beautiful walk with magnificent foliage. always something new to see every time we visit. East walks through the arboretum. I love the special work they do with taking care of certain species. Great place to visit.

The dwarf conifer section had some very interesting specimens. The row of dawn redwoods was just beginning to change color at this time, the third Sunday of October. We would have liked to see more signage for the varieties and species of plants. There are wet areas, so wear waterproof footwear. Great walking, but it is not meant to accommodate strollers or wheelchairs. This park is free and the way visitors are limited is connected to the parking. If one cannot find a parking space (about 24) the notice is that one "should come back another time". We were there before 10:30 AM on a Sunday and a few parking spaces were available. I think later in the day on the weekend in nice weather, the parking would be full and you would have to leave.

Mountain Top Arboretum is a lovely place for a walk. There are peaceful trails through wooded areas or stroll in the meadow. The West Meadow area by the lily pond is especially beautiful. Members are free; however, there is a suggested donation of $5 for other visitors. There is a small donation box near the larger parking area by a kiosk.

Beautiful snowshoe adventure! Trails very well marked but NOT all passable without snowshoes. One trail was uncovered for foot hikers. No restrooms available. Would definitely return in the summer for a new adventure.

This is a great place for an easy hike to be amongst the trees and woods. We really enjoyed being here. Allow about 90 minutes.
We saw the most unusual mushroom growth here just off the trails
