sumner-trails

September 21 @ 9:00 am

Tuesday, September  21. 3 miles. Long Hunter State Park. Couchville Lake and Cedar Glade Loops. 3 miles. We will first walk the beautiful paved, flat 2 mile Couchville Lake loop. Here we can enjoy the mostly shady loop and see the tree arboretum, lake, exposed limestone rocks and several shorebirds can often be spotted. Then we will caravan about a mile away to the second location at Long Hunter where we will walk the very unique one mile Cedar Glade trail loop. This loop is a natural surface, mostly flat trail with some rocks and roots occasionally. Limestone Cedar glades are a unique environment of very thin soil and exposed rocky patches surrounded by cedar trees and are found primarily in the central basis of Middle Tennessee. They are home to several plant species that are rare and grow only in these unique glades of middle Tennessee. Meet at the Glenbrook Kroger at 9:00 am and we can caravan the 45 minute drive to the park. Or meet at the Couchville Lake trailhead at 9:45. No pets allowed on these trails, sorry. We hope you can join us! Contact Jenny Fitzgerald with any questions at mrzfitz@gmail.com or (615)517-8185.
