Tuesday, March 7 — Booker T Washington State Park: Outer Loop Trail, 3.9 miles, easy. This trail follows the water most of the way around a peninsula, with beautiful views of Chickamauga Lake. Then it heads inland through pleasant woods to take us back to the trailhead. Be on the lookout for deer and enjoy the benches along the trail, but also be prepared to jump out of the way of mountain bikers. Check the weather forecast and wear appropriate layers; wear hiking shoes or boots; bring snacks and/or lunch along with more water than you think you need; and gather up hiking poles, rain jacket, sunscreen, and insect repellent as needed. Meet at the trailhead by the Booker T Washington swimming pool before 8:30 am so that we can hit the trail at 8:30 am. Please register with Nancy Allen, 423-987-0941 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
