Tennessee State Parks offers free, guided spring hikes statewide
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. —
Tennessee’s 56 State Parks are hosting free, guided hikes statewide on Saturday, March 24th to highlight the amenities and programming available during one of Tennessee’s most beautiful seasons.
“Our Rangers are trained to share the rich history of Tennessee’s public lands in a way that excites the imagination and leaves you wanting more,” said Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation Deputy Commissioner Brock Hill.
Park Rangers will lead guided hikes throughout the day that take visitors past scenic vistas, budding wildflowers and roaring waterfalls. Hikes will range from short, family-friendly walks to adventurous, all-day endeavors through a park’s most remote stretches.
Other statewide hikes Tennessee State Parks offers include National Trails Day in June, National Public Lands Day in September, After Thanksgiving Hikes in November and First Day Hikes in January.
March 24th hikes in the NewsChannel 9 viewing area include Booker T. Washington State Park, Harrison Bay State Park, Hiwassee/Ocoee Scenic River State Park, and Red Clay State Historic Park - to name just a few.
