Saturday, January 13 – “Pick a Park” series. Chickasaw State Park and Pinson Mounds State Archaeological Park. At Chickasaw, we will hike two trails: Fern Creek Trail, .65 miles rated easy and the Lakeshore Trail, 1.75 miles rated easy. The Fern Creek Trail begins and ends at Brewer Cabin, a one-room log cabin built in the 1870s. This trail passes through both lowland areas as well as upland hardwood forests. Ferns are plentiful all along this route which gives the trail its name. The Lakeshore Trail is 1.75 miles and rated easy. This is the most popular trail at Chickasaw State Park. This trail follows the entire shoreline of Lake Placid and connects several of the recreation areas including the tent campground, swimming area, and boat dock. The signature feature of this trail is the 640-foot footbridge that crosses the middle of Lake Placid connecting the tent campground with the main recreation area. Meet at the Visitors Center at 10:00 A.M. CT. Next we’ll visit Pinson Mounds State Archaeological Park which is about 20 minutes north of Chickasaw State Park. We’ll hike about 3 miles to see the highlights, plus climb to the top of 72′ Saul’s Mound. We’ll also visit the nice park museum. Please text or email RSVP by Thursday, January 11 in case of inclement weather. For more information or to sign up, contact Jeanne Conatser at 615-971-8894 or email@example.com.
