Dog Walking

Every First Thursday, 10 a.m.

Adkins Arboretum is a wonderful place to take a walk, but did you know you can bring along your dog? The Arboretum now offers a Dog Walking and Jogging Map that marks great routes to enjoy with your furry friend. The paths are well maintained, and each path offers something different. Nancy's Meadow Loop is an open space where you can feel the sun on your face and watch birds flying across the sky. The woodland paths allow for introspection in a lush environment where you can admire many species of trees throughout the changing seasons. The Tuckahoe Creekside Walk follows the Tuckahoe Creek, where you can relax on a bench. Exploring the paths at the Arboretum is a fun way to exercise and bond with your pet. The next time you visit, ask the Visitor’s Center staff for a Dog Walking and Jogging Map, and bring your best friend on a leash!

Join volunteer Vicki Arion, Arboretum staff, and other dog lovers each Thursday for a walk along the Arboretum's best paths for dog walking. Walks are free for members, free with $5 admission for non-members.

Walks begin at the Visitor's Center.
