From the West or From the Raleigh/Durham Airport
Take I-85/I-40 East to Raleigh. Take exit #289 to Wade Avenue. 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. Go to the third traffic light and turn left on Hillsborough Street. After driving under the Beltline, turn right (by the Waffle House) onto Beryl Road. Go over 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.
Alternatively, instead of turning left onto Hillsborough Street (refer to instructions above), one may go through the light 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 intersection with railroad tracks in the center. We recommend that Arboretum visitors avoid this alternate route since this large intersection is difficult to navigate.
