Explore the Arb with us

Today, Carleton’s arboretum is used for running, hiking, and biking when the weather permits, and both classic and skate skiing in the winters. Our goal in making this site is to make those options more accessible and obvious to Carls. Take a look at our maps and filter between layers and our recommendations to find routes that suit your needs.


Our maps show the various uses of the Arb, as well as some environmental information.
