CANCELLED – Long Hunter Day Loop Trail Hike
February 13, 2021 @ 10:00 am
CANCELLED – due to weather conditions. “Pick a Park” series. Day Loop Trail. Long Hunter State Park. 4.5 miles rated easy/moderate. This wild, rocky trail winds its way through mature oak-hickory forest, abundant plants and wildlife, and several scenic bluff overlooks of Percy Priest Lake. The first part of the hike follows the Volunteer Trail, but then it breaks off to form its own loop. Keep an eye out for large oak trees, unique rock formations and sinkholes, and even some limestone glade habitat featuring prickly pear cactus. Listen and look for pileated woodpecker, red-tailed hawk, osprey, and common loon. Dogs on a leash are allowed. Meet at the Bakers Grove Trailhead at 10:00 am CT. Please email or text to register in case we have to cancel due to foul weather. Parts look a little steep – might bring a pole.
