Beautiful natural scenery, inspiring art installations, and nice, shady resting spots to cool off from the heat. If you are on or near campus, this is a must stop.

This was a beautiful place to take a little walk. The trails were well maintained and 6 miles seemed to pass by easily. Great for a stroll and a little conversation.

What a nice way to spend an hour or two. You will see beautiful blooms and unusual trees as you walk the easy trails.

We wanted to do some walking after the drive to Nacogdoches, and heard about the azaleas. Unfortunately, they were past their prime. The gardens looked like they would be really nice if we had come a week or two earlier, so we will come back...More

Took a road trip break to visit the arboretum and walked just some of the trails in it and connected to it for a total hike of 6 miles out of a possible 10. The arboretum itself is large and gorgeous, even in November, although...More

Interesting arboretum: a wonderful selection a works of arts tucked away in nicely kept garden. Great for a short stroll or just to ponder on one of the many benches.

Wonderful natural retreat; a great walk joined by an adorable wooden footbridge to the Mize Azalea Garden (which got five stars from me because when it's in bloom? Oh my God). As you walk, enjoy the great exhibit of public art provided by Sculpture For...More

What a fabulous way to spend an afternoon! So many photo opportunities too. We missed the Azalea and Camellia blooming season by weeks however the foliage was still quite colorful. This is an easy walk and perfect for any age.

Very nice area with plenty of walking trails and places to sit to enjoy the beauty, relax or reflect. Plenty of scenic spots for pictures. There is a "tunnel" formed from cedar trees that have grown up and bent over the path from both sides....More
