Meet arboretum at 8am. Transport to the start at Baan Khun Chang Kian.

Walk east (towards Huay Tung Taew), turn right to skirt around below Khun Chang Kian, then ascend back to the village on the path leading from Wat Prathet Doi Suthep. Good tracks/paths throughout, not too steep.

Duration of walk 3-4 hours, plus 45 mins car time up & 45 mins down.

You need your own or prearranged transport or be able to arrange own songtaew to and from the village (the village is beyond Wat Doi Suthep and Songthaews only run up there on special arrangement).
