When was the last time you took a walk in the woods?

In today’s fast-paced world, it’s hard to find tranquility. Except at Adkins Arboretum, that is. 

When was the last time you really heard the quiet? When you take a walk at Adkins, you are able to enjoy the quiet and let your mind and body pick their own pace. By being outside in nature, you get the opportunity to enjoy the solitude and the beauty. If you give yourself enough time, you begin to feel the sense of endurance that only being in the woods can give you. Exercise is a well-documented health benefit for both your mind and body. So give yourself a well-deserved break from today’s demands. Come to the Arboretum for a step back in time and a bit of tranquility.

Experience the tranquility that only a walk in the woods can provide. Join tomorrow’s First Saturday Guided Walk, beginning at 10 a.m. at the Visitor’s Center. The walk is free for members and free with admission for the general public. Or visit any day for a self-guided walk. The Arboretum is open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
