The Holden Arboretum is an outdoor living museum on 3,600 acres that promotes the beauty and importance of trees and other woody plants. The grounds feature over 20 miles of trails that lead you through cultivated gardens and native forests. The Arboretum also features the Murch Canopy Walk, an elevated walkway 65 feet above the forest floor, and the Kalberer Family Emergent Tower, a wooden tower that rises 120 feet above the forest floor for breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape. The Holden Arboretum and Cleveland Botanical Garden make up Holden Forests & Gardens, which is making a positive impact in the region through urban greening and forestry initiatives, environmental research, educational programs, and world-class visitor experiences to its two campuses
