TRAIL CLOSINGS

To all who use the trails at The Frelinghuysen Arboretum, please note that some much needed maintenance and restoration will be going on over the next several months. To expedite the work and for safety reasons, the trails and gardens around the Mansion and other parts of the property will be closed from approximately mid-October through mid-January, depending on weather.

Please stay off the trails wherever you see this sign. We will keep you advised as to when the trails will reopen. Thank you for your cooperation!
