Viles Arboretum - Fitness for all Seasons ( 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. )
The Viles Pond Loop is the best introductory walk in the Arboretum. It goes through the hosta garden, past the old piggery and out to Viles Pond. It is about a mile round trip. Dogs are allowed on arboretum grounds but must be leashed at all times. Dog waste must be picked up and removed from the Aboretum by the owner. Failure to do so may result in the loss of the priviledge to bring dogs onto the property. Dogs are NOT allowed in cultivated areas, including the quarry ledge rock garden. Bicycles are allowed on the trails. Cyclists must yield to visitors on foot. Courtesy, common sense, and safety for all are of paramount importance. The Arboretum offers what may be the best groomed ski trials in the area. Groomed trails are open to skiers only. Marked snowshoes trails are also available. The Arboretum is beautiful in winter. Please enjoy. Horses are allowed on all trails but the Hosta trail. Horses are not allowed on bridges and boardwalks. The grounds are open every day of the year from dawn to dusk. The Visitors Center is open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
