Lena’s Nature Trail

The 80 acres of woods you are about to explore were donated to the Batesville community by Lena Brum (1900-1993). Lena was a life-long resident of Batesville who loved nature.  She attended Batesville schools and worked as a switchboard operator at the telephone company. She retired when the company no longer used switchboards and spent the rest of her life taking care of her family and their land.

The network of hiking and biking trails traverse several miles of forested landscape. These trails were created and are maintained by the city of Batesville and a dedicated group of individuals from the community known as “The friends of Brum Woods.”

A diversity of plants and animals that call Brum woods home can be found along the hiking and biking trails.

Thank You Lena for a wonderful gift!
