Hike set for UT Arboretum this Saturday

Did you make a New Year’s resolutions to get more exercise or spend more time outdoors? The UT Arboretum Society can help with both.

For the third year, the UT Arboretum Society offers a guided hike on the third Saturday of each month.

This is a free program offered by the University of Tennessee Arboretum Society. No registration is necessary.

The first hike will be Saturday, Jan 18.

Learn about the UT Arboretum’s trails on this short trail hike (1 to 1.5 hours). Hikes will be varied in intensity level, and the route may be changed due to weather conditions or leader’s choice. This hike will be led by a volunteer familiar with the UT Arboretum and the trail system.

Please wear clothes appropriate to the weather, and boots or good shoes for outdoor walking. The aim is for this hike to be suitable for all, but the difficulty level of the hike is dependent on individual fitness.

Participants are asked to bring a water bottle to stay hydrated as they hike. No pets are allowed because of research projects underway on the grounds.
