Dog lovers will love a Virginia Arboretum that welcomes two-legged visitors who arrive with their four-legged friends! Whether you're visiting the EJC Arboretum and Botanical Gardens at JMU for a three mile cross-country run on georgeous trails with your canine running companion, or spreading a blanket on lush lawns to soak up sunrays while your canine companion gets their doggie nap, you and your dog will have an enjoyable visit. Travelers who don't want to leave the family dog at home can plan an enjoyable daytrip to the EJC Arboretum and Botanical Gardens, the only arboretum and botanical gardens found on a Virginia state university campus! And perhaps the only State Arboretum and Botanical Gardens that welcomes its visitors' dogs too! With over three miles of trails to sniff through 125 acres, your dog friendly adventure awaits.
