I spent an hour one afternoon exploring the nature trails at the Pineywoods Native Plant Center. The trails are easy to navigate and relatively flat. Maps are available at the trail entrance.

This is a great foot trail through the pine woods. The university forestry dept. has labeled various trees, something we found interesting. You can choose shorter or longer trails to explore, good maps posted.
