Red Leaves @ Natchez Trace State Park
January 8 @ 8:30 am
This is the first leg of 4 of the Red Leaves Trail at Natchez Trace State Park. We will meet at the park headquarters/visitor center at 8:30 a.m. The hike begins here. We will meander our way thru the woods towards I-40. We will walk across the bridge that spans I-40 and the trail picks back up shortly beyond I-40. We will walk thru the woods to the Pecan Tree Trail and go pass the old location of the world’s largest pecan tree. The trail continues into the woods and around the back side of Maple Lake and that loop comes back to the Pecan Tree Road. At that point, we will have a truck that will take us back to the park headquarters (unless you won’t to hike back) so that we don’t have to hike that portion again. The hike is rated moderate to hard due to length of 11-11 1/2 miles. Please wear appropriate hiking shoes & weather appropriate clothing. Please bring water, snacks, lunch. Please register with Terry Warren (hike leader) at 731-535-0625 or firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, January 7. Natchez Trace State Park is located near Yuma/Wildersville, TN. Access park headquarters via I-40, exit 116 or from State Highway 114 in Lexington.
