Habitat Hikes

These self-guided Habitat Hikes give you an insider’s look at the Arboretum. Each hike passes one of our educational Field Stations and features some of our Naturalists’s favorite stops like ponds teaming with wildlife, trees with interesting stories, insect houses, and other fun points of interest.

As part of a brand new partnership between the Houston Arboretum and ROCO, a special ROCO on the Go playlist has been curated for each Habitat Hike. The music was carefully selected to complement each hike’s ecosystem and features. You can enjoy these playlists on the trails or from the comfort of your own home simply by clicking on the links below!
