Illumination Accessibility

The Arboretum has a small number of non-motorized wheelchairs available free of charge each evening in the Visitor Center. Guests must leave a drivers’ license or other photo ID to check out a wheelchair. Because our supply is limited, we strongly recommend bringing a wheelchair to the Arboretum if needed.

The Illumination experience can be split into two segments. Guests who do not want to go up the steeper incline are welcome to begin the experience, return to Arbor Court via the Tram Road at the midpoint of the trail, and then enter at the exit of the Illumination path and go against traffic to experience the second half of the trail (resulting in a decline at Frost Hill, instead of an incline). Alternatively, guests can choose to walk the entire route in reverse, beginning the experience at the exit, and traveling towards the entrance.
