“one of the largest arboretums in the us”

Diverse natural areas and ecologically sensitive habitats make up the rest of the holdings. The Arboretum's collection includes 9,400 different kinds of woody plants, representing 79 plant families.

Beautiful place. The tower was awesome. Getting to the top and seeing the view was worth it. The suspended bridges were fun too
The Judith and Maynard H. Murch Canopy Walk at Holden Arboretum in Kirtland, Ohio features a 500 ft. long elevated walkway suspended 65 ft. above the forest floor. It gives visitors a truly unique perspective of the forest and the animals that live among the trees.
And as an added bonus, there’s an observation tower on site that takes you up even further up—so much further that you end up above the trees.
