New year's Day Hike 2016

Second Annual UTAS New Year's Day Hike

The UT Arboretum Society (UTAS) hosted the second annual “New Year's Day Hike” on Friday January 1st, 2016. The event started out in the new Arboretum Auditorium at 9:30 am for a “meet and greet” with UTAS members and FRREC staff, which included free coffee, hot chocolate and assorted snacks. At about 10 am the attendees left the visitors center for several group hikes that included the Oak-Hickory Trail, the Heath Cove Trail, and the Tulip Poplar Trail. The cold winter day did not decrease the enthusiasm of the 82 people in attendance.
