Morris Arboretum’s Wellness Walks – Go for the Work Out, Stay for the Wonderment

Morris Arborteum’s Wellness Walks, held Saturdays at 10:30am and Sundays at 1pm through March, are designed for guests to experience nature while working out their limbs and lungs.  Led by expert guides, walkers will follow a quick pace along two mile-long loops on the paved path, breathing in fresh air made from the Arboretum’s hundreds of trees that absorb carbon dioxide to produce clean oxygen.  As the heart-pumping group move throughout the 92-acre garden, guides will point out several of the Arboretum’s unique treasures, including specimen trees, distinctive architectural features, and awe-inspiring vistas.

Members and non-members meet at the Visitors Center wearing comfortable clothing and shoes, ready to walk for approximately 45 minutes to an hour.   Afterward, walkers may continue to exercise and enjoy the spectacular scenery on their own.
