Visit this one of only three arboreta in eastern North America with old growth forests as well as holding a collection of nationally recognized Northeast oaks.

 Landis is an arboretum and public garden incorporating hundreds of acres in Schoharie & Montgomery Counties in New York State.

Forty acres of the Arboretum are developed with plantings of trees, shrubs, and herbaceous perennials from around the world. The remainder of the property consists of natural areas, woodlands, wetlands, more than 12 miles of trails, and open fields.

If you enjoy birding you will love it here as there are dozens of bird species including bluebirds, hawks, owls, woodpeckers, ravens, ducks and herons.

You can obtain a trail map at the Visitor Center along with a wealth of other information.  Though there is no fee, a donation is recommended. 

You can make your hike as short or long as you like through a variety of areas and terrain.  There is some areas of rolling terrain but not a lot of elevation change. 

Enjoy the wildflowers, wildlife and views of the Schoharie Valley!
