From the West or From the Raleigh/Durham Airport

Take I-85/I-40 East to Raleigh. Merge onto Wade Avenue at exit #289. Take the third exit on the right and merge onto I-440. Take the Hillsborough Street exit (Exit 3). Turn left onto Hillsborough Street. Go through the first light and turn right at the second light (by the Waffle House) onto Beryl Road. Go over the railroad tracks, (bearing to the right) and continue straight ahead for about a half mile. The Arboretum's entrance is on the left shortly after Capitol City Lumber.


Alternate

Take I-85/I-40 East to Raleigh. Merge onto Wade Avenue at exit #289. Take the second exit on the right for Blue Ridge Road. At the top of the exit ramp, turn right on to Blue Ridge Road. Drive through the Hillsborough Street intersection and over the tracks. Beryl Road is just after the tracks. Turn left onto Beryl Road. The Arboretum's entrance is on the right shortly after Pylon Drive. Beryl Road, Blue Ridge Road, and Hillsborough Street all form one large, complicated intersection with railroad tracks in the center. We recommend that Arboretum visitors avoid this alternate route since this large intersection is difficult to navigate.
