New Year’s Day Hike: Bryant Grove Trail- Long Hunter
January 1 @ 9:30 am – 2:00 pm
New Year’s Day Hike: Sunday, January 1: Bryant Grove Trail at Long Hunter State Park, Hermitage TN. An out and back trail of 8 miles, rated moderate. . This flat, winding trail connects the Couchville Lake area to Bryant Grove Recreation Area as it follows the shore of Percy Priest Lake. The path visits several unique habitats, including rare limestone glades. It crosses a wooden bridge above Bryant Grove Creek, where green herons are occasionally seen wading and feeding. The one-mile marker (coming from Couchville Lake) is a good “habitat edge” birding spot for warblers, vireos and other species. Keep an eye out for owls, hawks and raccoons along the trail. No pets allowed. We’ll meet at 9:30 am CST at the kiosk near the playground in the Couchville Lake area. You can navigate there using “Couchville Lake Trail” on Google Maps. We will enjoy lunch in the Bryant Grove Recreation Area. Bring lunch, water, and snacks.. To register, contact Doug Burroughs at email@example.com or 615-587-0085 (text or leave voicemail). This is a joint hike with the Murfreesboro Chapter.
