The Faro Arboretum showcases many species of trees and shrubs indigenous to the Yukon. It is bounded by Van Gorder creek, the mine road and the road to town. It offers cool, moist, shaded habitats as well as hot, dry, sunny areas. Trail passes through stands of pine, spruce, aspen and willow. The area was burned in a fire in June 1969.
A short loop trail leads through the Arboretum area of Faro. A nice easy walk close to the campground. And can also link up with the Van Gorder falls trail and continue to traverse the hillsides above Faro for more views as weel.
Start off of the mine road just outside of Faro. There is a sign to a large parking area nad gazebo. The trail has a sign and is marked. You can pick up more info at the Campbell Region Interpretive Centre. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
