Welcome to Brum Woods. 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 phone company. She retired when the telephone 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."
Along the hiking and biking trails you'll have the opportunity to view the diversity of plants and animals that call Brum woods "home."
