Promoting the development and enjoyment of Tennessee trails.
In celebration of National Trails Day, we will hike Big Ridge State Park. This park has over 15 miles of hiking trails but we will hike approximately 5 miles. We will begin our hike at the Lake Trail adjacent to the park office. After about 1 mile, we will cross the lake to get to the other side to pick up the same trail. In another mile, we will get to Snodderly Cemetery and then to Ghost House Trail. We should then connect to Big Valley Trail which will take us to a shuttle car and back to the park office. We’ll walk a short distance to a covered shelter where we’ll continue to celebrate National Trails Day by enjoying grilled burgers and dogs and a favorite beverage. All spouses and friends are welcome. For those who want to carpool, meet at 9:00 am in the parking area of Ingles on Cedar Lane. Take the Merchants Rd exist off I-75 North. We should arrive at the park office by 10:00 am. We should start our grilling at 1:00 pm. Come celebrate National Trails Day with us. Pre registration is advised.
