Landscape & Natural Resources Office Location:

Directions to Natural Areas Access:
To reach the hiking trails in the Arboretum Natural Areas, there are two options for parking:
1. Parking Garage C, which requires appropriate parking decal or purchase of a one day decal (can be purchased in the garage);
2. Park in the Arboretum’s dirt lot. From Alafaya Blvd. (434): Turn east on University Blvd. and take a right onto Gemini Blvd. Turn west (left) on Gemini Loop (second entrance to Parking Garage C), but keep to your right – do not enter garage. Head straight, past the stop sign and through the parking lot (lot C1). Turn left into, then immediately right into the C2 parking lot. Continue through the lot to the southwest corner, pull onto the wide concrete sidewalk, turn left, and immediately left off of the sidewalk into the arboretum. Parking is free for visitors – please visit the Arboretum office for a parking decal.
Additional nature trails in the northeast area of campus can be accessed near the Parking Lot at Lake Clair Recreational Area.
