HERB PARSONS - First Saturday of Every Month

THIS IS A 5.5 MILE+/2-4 HOUR HIKE AROUND THE LAKE... Come join us for a hike around Herb Parsons Lake. This place is close by - less than 5 miles from Collierville and just a bit more from Arlington. See directions at the link below. Much of the hike is lake side with great views. You will love it.

We will meet on the deck at the store/bait shop (you can see it as soon as you pull into the park). Bring snacks, water, sunscreen, and a hat. Wear and either sneakers or hiking boots and dress in layers. It is also good to bring a backpack if you wish to remove layers. Bring bug spray. Ticks are becoming a problem so make sure your bugspray works for ticks.

VERY IMPORTANT!!!!!

If you use google maps, it will tell you to take 40 E to 64 E to 269 S. 269 S is actually 385. Google Map of our regular meetup locations.

This is an easy hike on well marked trails, perfect for those new to hiking. We hike between 2-4 hours.

Call if you have questions or are running late,[masked]-8080.

    Whoever posted the GPS track, could you send me the GPX file for that. I'd love to post a copy of it on RunKeeper. Thx.

    The snow and chill put a damper on my plans. I just can't enjoy myself when it's cold. I am not a winter person. Sorry about backing out, but hope to see you guys at Sky Zone.

    Arlington got a nice snow/sleet covering this morning (covers the car) - watch out on bridges and overpasses. Last time we had this little, the bridges and overpasses were awful!

    My friend/co-worker Steve will be joining me. He is the trail master for this park. Said he would be willing to talk about the background and some of the history of different parts of the trail if the group is interested. Or he'll just hike along with us. :-)

      Cool, I look forward to a future hike, with his commentary. I love the commentary Howard does, too. It really adds to the enjoyment of the hike.

    I should be able to attend. I've been to this lake before and it's a nice place to get some fresh air. I am bringing one guest.
