Take a stroll at the arboretum
The N.C. Arboretum in Asheville will resume offering guided trail walks this spring, with groups setting off at 1 p.m. Tuesdays and Saturdays April 10 through Oct. 30.
Walks will be limited to 10 people, including the guide, with masks required for all. Groups depart from the Baker Exhibit Center lobby, and while there is a $16 parking fee the walks themselves are free.
As of April 1, the arboretum’s summer hours are in effect, with gardens and trails open daily from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. through October. The Baker Exhibit Center is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. The incoming gate closes at 8 p.m.
Due to limited space, pre-registration is encouraged, either online at bit.ly/3dxJlzw or in-person at the Baker Information Desk. Pre-registered participants must check in at least 10 minutes before the scheduled program to keep their spot.
