The University of Tennessee Arboretum Society’s monthly hike for June will be held Saturday, June 16, at the UT Arboretum on South Illinois Avenue. The hike is scheduled to start at 9 a.m. Saturday.
“The weather is warm, and this is a great time to spend outdoors,” a press release said. “Learn about the UT Arboretum’s trails on this short trail hike (1 to 1.5 hours).”
This hike will be held outdoors and will be led by a volunteer familiar with the Arboretum and the trail system, the press release said.
The UT Arboretum is at 901 South Illinois Avenue in Oak Ridge. Organizers said you should wear clothes appropriate to the weather and boots or good shoes for outdoor walking.
This is a free program offered by the UT Arboretum Society.
The monthly hike is on the third Saturday of each month. Hikes will be varied in intensity level, and the route may be changed due to weather conditions or leader’s choice, the press release said. Hiking any trail above your fitness level can make for a day that is less than enjoyable, the press release said.
“We aim for these hikes to be suitable for all, but the difficulty level of the hike is dependent on individual fitness,” the press release said.

More information will be added as it becomes available.
