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 near 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.

    When I got back to Jackson, too much heavy rain had made me tired of driving. I may hit the road tomorrow, weather permitting. Thanks for asking!

    We only got off track once this time. So, we did better than last month. And I made notes of which paths to take at the forks, for reference next time.

    Sorry, didn't make it, got lost and I thought I knew where I was going.

      Look forward to seeing you next month. I've added the GPS Coordinates to the meetup details, if your GPS supports that. They will take you directly to the park entrance.

    We are down by the bait shop. I'm in a kilt, so I'm kind of hard to miss.

    Just a warming everyone: there's a triathlon going on up here and parking is a mess. We'll wait a little longer than usual for stragglers.
