Walk from an environment you might find in Australia to an oak grove that includes exotic species from Spain and the Middle East, all while following the UC Davis Arboretum Trail. This winding interpretive path follows Putah Creek through downtown Davis and the adjacent university campus. Take a botanical tour of the world without ever leaving California’s Great Valley by exploring the trail through the Davis Arboretum. Interpretive signs along the winding urban path, which borders a tame stretch of Putah Creek, identify the stunning variety of plants that have been nurtured here. It’s a chance to get educated while you exercise.
