With 392 acres, the Boyce Thompson Arboretum provides stunning exhibits in incomparable settings at the foot of Picket Post Mountain. Nestled along Queen Creek, it is a haven for plant lovers, photographers, birders, and nature enthusiasts of all ages. Over 2600 different plant types from the deserts of Australia, North and South America, southern Africa, and other arid-land regions blend seamlessly into this natural setting.

Approximately 3 miles of well-maintained, easy-walking loop trails are available for your visit, with many shaded areas. Bring lunch for a midday break under large trees in our picnic area.
