UT Arboretum Society offers monthly hike on July 21

Enjoy a Summer Morning Hike at the UT Arboretum

 

The UT Arboretum Society’s monthly hike (third Saturday monthly) for July will be held July 21 at the UT Arboretum, 9:00 a.m.

 

The weather is warm, and an early morning hike will be refreshing. Be sure to bring a water bottle to stay hydrated as you hike. Learn about the UT Arboretum’s trails on this short trail hike (1 to 1.5 hours). Hiking any trail above your fitness level can make for a less than enjoyable day while out on the trail. 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 held outdoors and will be led by a volunteer familiar with the Arboretum and the trail system.

 

Come to the UT Arboretum, 901 S. Illinois Avenue in Oak Ridge at 9:00 a.m. Wear clothes appropriate to the weather and boots or good shoes for outdoor walking. We aim for these hikes to be suitable for all, but the difficulty level of the hike is dependent on individual fitness.

 

This is a free program offered by the University of Tennessee Arboretum Society.
