Southern's Bauxite Ridge and White Oak Mountain trails span more than 30 miles, stretching from the lowest point of the valley to the ridge top overlooking the university. The trail system is perfect for walkers, hikers, mountain bikers, and cross-country trail runners. With sections of varying difficulty, the trails are suitable for everything from a lazy meander to a muscle-toning endurance workout. The pine and hardwood forest through which the trails wind is also a paradise for the nature enthusiast, with wildflowers, birds, a creek habitat, and many other natural features.

The trails are maintained by Landscape Services. For more information, call 423.236.2747
