Self Guided Tour of the Arboretum's "Back 40"
Stops at numbered points of interest on our self-guided tours are marked in the Arboretum by low 4 x 4 posts. Large white numbers on the beveled top of each post clearly designate each stop.
Go to each tour guide's link above, the Upper Grounds Tour or the Back 40 Tour, to view, individually download, and print the tour maps and the tour stop descriptions. Our commercially printed self-guided tour appears on both sides of a single piece of heavy-weight stock and is folded into a pocket-sized guide. Our tour map is based on the Town's official Arboretum trail map.
As part of the development of educational materials made possible by the grant received from the William P. Wharton Trust of Boston, members of the Friends receive free copies of the commercially printed pocket-sized tour guides and other educational materials being developed as they are produced. Others may purchase guides at the Acton Town Hall.
