Herrontown Woods Arboretum Reviews & Ratings
A favorite walking place, good for people and dogs. Almost all wooded, with varied terrain - you can get a good climb. You'll encounter very few people.
Fantastic nature preserve... great hiking for younger munchkins 4+ or 3 with extra help from m&d! Very muddy after rain... but with wellies it's not bad at all! Great day!!
Went on a nature walk with experts about amphibians and plants. It was fabulous. Herrontown Woods is a treasure. Please support the group working to preserve it.
So glad they are restoring native vegetation. Saw a pleated woodpecker and wood thrush last year. Top quality habitat!
Been going here since a child love it. I now take my children here to enjoy what we love to do see nature
