More than just a hike! The UT Arboretum's interpretive trails are designed to teach and show ecological points of interest. There are more than 2,500 native and exotic woody plant speciments on this 250-acre Research and Education Center. Self-guided nature trails thread the nearly 5 miles of woods open to hikers, photographers and bird-watchers. Trail markers with interpretive signs describe many of the trees, shrubs and flowering plants.  From thick underbrush to mature hardwood and pine to wide-open fields, this mix of habitats, cover, and food attracts bird species year-round. The open spaces provide exceptional opportunities for bird-viewing at close range.This is an excellent resource for school children researching science projects.
