Superior, AZ 85173

FREE — limited to the first 20 survivors, immediate family/caregivers ages 18+ only.

Join us for our first time visiting the Arboretum! 

Almost all of the Arboretum is accessible, with flat fine granite surfaces that will accommodate wheelchairs and walkers.

This will be a self-guided tour at your own pace.  You will need to be self sufficient or bring a caregiver/family member with you if you require assistance of any kind.

Please be aware that travel time will range from 40 minutes up to 1 ½ hours from most valley locations, and does require freeway driving.  Public transportation will not be an option, therefore if you require someone to transport you, please DO NOT sign up and take one of the limited spaces unless you have already arranged for someone to drive you – and make sure that you register your driver/caregiver as well.

  • Masks and social distancing apply at all times.
  • You must stay on designated trails at all times.
  • There is a picnic and courtyard area – please feel free to bring your own lunch, snacks and drinks.
  • Leashed and well-behaved pets are welcome! Pets must be on a leash no longer than six-feet and under the physical control of the owner. Pet owners are responsible for cleanup. Please do your part to preserve this privilege.
