The UAB Walking Trails make it simple for UAB employees, students and visitors to exercise regularly within the workplace. The trails feature eight routes offering a variety of distances all over the medical and academic campus that make it convenient for steppers to walk at work (rain or shine).

    UAB’s campus is home to more than 35 public works of art. The UAB Reporter recently mapped the collection along three two-mile trails, each of which takes about 30 minutes to walk. The trails can be viewed on a specialized Google Map, created by the UAB Reporter with help from the Office of Risk Management and the Abroms-Engel Institute for the Visual Arts.
