The trails here can get very confusing as not everything is properly marked and the trails seem to go in circles. I would suggest going on the Sokol Main trail and just following the yellow markers. It will seem like it is never going to end but just keep walking and trust your instincts and you'll make it out alive.

We had a nice walk in the woods. Lots of up and down and uneven ground. We passed trail bikers, joggers and other walkers.

Great short hike to hike or run on and interesting to see change throughout the year.

I hike this trail weekly. Such great scenery, with the creek running through a large portion of the trail. Don't be surprised if you come across wildlife, such as deer, rabbits, squirrels, etc. With so many different trail heads to choose from, you can go back and take a different path every time.

The trail was scenic. But, this map is to Bowers PARA disc golf trail. Still fun to hike, but it was not the arboretum.

I needed a relaxing day outdoors and that's exactly what I found at the Arboretum.

The trails are all very well taken care of and you can tell that a lot of work goes into this park's upkeep. I took a mix of trails all through the woods and still did not get to see everything that this place has to offer.

If you want to just escape for a few hours and enjoy the good spring Tuscaloosa weather, this place is your new go-to.

I found a few pine trees by the lake and broke out my ENO for a few hours of reading. Definitely not the last time that I'll be coming here!
