There are over seven miles of trails within the Arboretum. There is an Improved Access Loop of lowland trails as well as a “barrier free” trail loop. Click here for descriptions of the trails, as well as a note on current conditions, to better plan your visit.
Dozens of benches are located throughout the Arboretum, offering opportunities to pause during a visit. Below is a virtual map of our benches, compiled in 2021 by Liza Holtz, then Master of Landscape Architecture Candidate at the University of Oregon. Click on each bench for photos of the bench and the view.
The Arboretum parking lot is a terraced gravel lot. There are not currently parking spaces that meet Federal accessibility guidelines & standards (though these will be coming soon), but parking on the lower level of the lot provides direct and level access to the network of river-front trails and the Improved Access Loop. A drop-off area is located near the kiosk at the entrance to the Arboretum.
Mount Pisgah Arboretum has two drinking fountains close to the entrance to the park and next to the White Oak Pavilion and public restrooms. Drinking fountains are turned off during extended periods of freezing weather. The green restroom building west of the White Oak Pavilion (right next to the Riverbank Trail and entrance to the Patricia Baker Wildflower Garden) is open seven days a week. During special events, the restrooms immediately east of the White Oak Pavilion are open as well. Both sets of restrooms are accessible and ADA compliant.
Planning to rent out the White Oak Pavilion for a special event? There are two ADA-accessible parking spaces immediately adjacent to the Pavilion that may be used during the course of your event. (Please note that vehicles are not normally allowed to drive up to the White Oak Pavilion outside of the context of a rental event.)
