This is a bit more of a hike in the woods with natural terrain, there are elevation changes and because of the natural terrain, there are roots and stones as well as fallen leaves to be aware of. It should be lovely in the forest as the leaves will be changing. Part of this walk is in the Adkins Arboretum. This walk could be up to 2.5 miles if we do the whole loop.
