Soar gently over Comstock Knoll, where more than 150 varieties of rhododendron and azalea delight the senses with color and form. This iconic hill located directly behind the Nevin Welcome Center heralds spring at Cornell Botanic Gardens, providing a beloved backdrop for graduation photos and contemplative walks.

If you can’t visit in person, the knoll still delivers its pleasures virtually. Join the red-tailed hawks that often circle above to experience Comstock Knoll at its seasonal peak.
