On this short, easy hike you’ll have the chance to experience the grandeur of one of the world’s premier horticultural showplaces. Along the way you can visit twenty outdoor gardens—each fashioned in a unique landscape of similarly colored flowers— a 41/2-acre glass encased conservatory, and the largest greenhouse in the world, and you can stop and smell the roses or any of the other 11,000 different types of plants. You will also pass by the Italian Water Gardens on your way to Hourglass Lake and the 86-acre Meadow Garden area before you climb the Eye of Water tower as you complete this one-of-a-kind hiking experience.
