This walk through the western side of the National Arboretum is especially vibrant during spring when the azaleas and daffodils are in bloom. Walk through the visitor center to the large patio that leads out to the gardens, all of which are well-marked. Visit the National Bonsai & Penjing Museum on your left. On display here are bonsai trees and plants placed in four peaceful courtyards. This is a nice quiet place to begin or end your hike. From here, head out onto Meadow Road and into the Herb Garden.
