A great place to soak in the glorious outdoors of Madison, the University of Wisconsin-Madison Arboretum is a dream for any outdoor enthusiast. The campus is home to a great volume of coniferous trees that have paved paths for fantastic hikes. Not just coniferous, but as you get around you will also encounter several deciduous forests and wetlands. Owing this very favorable ecological balance, there is an abundance of vivid wildlife, butterflies, birds and insects that are a delight to watch while hiking. Apart from hiking, biking and skiing are widely carried out too here.

University Of Wisconsin-Madison Arboretum Reviews & Ratings
What an awesome treat. I'm not sure if this is a popular destination but it sure should be. Especially considering it's free and open to public. A colorful escape in the middle of Madison. You could spend several hours just taking pictures and admiring of all the vibrant plants you see here. The gardens were fantastic. The trails were okay and well I'm not sure about the pond thou lol
Pretty as heck. I haven't been there in the fall, but if summer is any indication, it must be beautiful. A must-visit for local nature lovers.
The University of Wisconsin - Madison Arboretum is wonderful for running. This the fall colors, the sounds of the birds and the fabulous scenery you can't go wrong. The road this not traveled by many so you will not run across much traffic....mostly other walkers and runners. And if you have the energy you can follow the loop through Nakoma and the Zoo near St. Mary's Hospital....allowing you approximately 6 miles of flat and rolling hill stretches. Enjoy!
Wonderful place for a walk, there is always something new to discover thanks to the wide variety of plants, woods.... found a rare flower yesterday.. Monotropa uniflora, also called ghost plant....it is ghostly!
Great variety of habitat types to walk through, native prairie and woods. My favorite part is the open part where tree species are labeled. Great both summer and winter. Beware in the spring for the mud!
