UT Arboretum Hike

Event Date: February 17, 2024

UT Arboretum Hike

Come join us for a mid-winter hike at the 260-acre UT Arboretum in Oak Ridge. The UT Arboretum Society will hold a Third Saturday Hike on Saturday, February 17th at the UT Arboretum in Oak Ridge. Enjoy the forests and trails in this lovely, wooded setting. Located at 901 South Illinois Avenue in Oak Ridge, everyone is welcome to participate in this FREE guided hike which will begin at 9:00 a.m.

Newcomers as well as previous participants are invited to join the hike. The hikes have been a staple of the UT Arboretum and UT Arboretum Society for over 15 years. This is a great opportunity to “walk off” the holiday celebrations and get outside for some fresh air and exercise.

Join the hike that begins outside the UT Arboretum Visitors Center. The group will then leave for a guided hike that will be around two miles. The Visitors Center will not be open but portable restrooms are available in the parking lot area.  

Please wear clothes appropriate to the weather and boots or good shoes for outdoor walking. We aim for this hike to be suitable for all, but the difficulty level of the hike is dependent on individual fitness. Be sure to bring a water bottle to stay hydrated as you hike. No pets, please. Due to ongoing research projects on our grounds, we are unable to allow pets.
