Tyler Arboretum

The 650 acre Tyler Arboretum has seven trails, each given a name by color: green, yellow, pink, red, white, blue, and orange. These trails are marked by colored squares on trees at intervals on the paths. The trails range in both their difficulty and length. The Green Trail, for example, is an easy walk of mostly flat terrain and is .9 miles long, where the White Trail covers more diverse territory and is a full 8.5 miles

When visiting, it is best to spend at least a few hours on the grounds. The white trail begins its eight-mile length with a paved path, which eventually gives way to an unpaved but nevertheless easy to navigate walking area. The yellow path’s opening is similar in that it is easy, but it is a slightly more sloping and slanting route, with uneven ground.

Due to the enormous amount of space the arboretum’s paths occupy, it is possible to walk for quite some
time without seeing anyone. If you are a novice hiker or someone easily lost, be sure to take note of your surroundings every so often and be sure to leave enough time to return to the parking lot, as the gates automatically close at five o’clock.
