As another review here noted, the navigation is a bit confusing. I also think that some parts of the arboretum are getting a bit overgrown. There were plants so tall around the benches , the views across the pond were heavily obstructed. Nevertheless, the setting is very peaceful and lovely with the little bridges and islands across the pond. The... 更多
We were on a college visit and took a run on the miles of trails through woods and fields. Nice varied terrain and I imagine the cross-country trails in the winter are amazing!
This is an arboretum of Carleton college and a managed wild-life refuge. It extends on either side of the main road, with many trails, all beautiful. Great for birding. Hunting is probably permitted in the winter months. The upper arboretum nearer the college leads to an elevated area with seating which has a lovely view of the area, fabulous at... 更多

The "Arb" is a large aboretum with many trails (maps available at the Carleton bookstore) so you can vary your routes. Many areas are "restored" to prairie, but it is pleasure to use any time of the year.
Our son graduated from Carleton and he only passed through the Arb a zillion times on his way to the gym or Ultimate practice. Not sure he ever saw it the way we did a few weeks ago. Perfect weather, tons of wildlife, other graduate parents wandering the paths. A great place to just decompress or relish the brilliant idea... 更多
