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.

    Pam, I reviewed the list of people attending and to my surprise I noticed your name. Can't wait to see an old neighbor. :). Hoping you still plan on walking today.

    Guys, I've had an unexpected funeral come up, and I probably will not be able to make this hike. I am trying to find someone to lead it in my place, so we don't have to cancel. I will keep you posted.

    Guys, Ravpreet has graciously offered to lead the hike this month. He's been on this trail once before, so if others of you have done this hike more than once, I am sure he will welcome your input. As long as you keep the lake on your left, you can't really get lost, because this trail circles the lake and comes back around to the parking lot.

    Gavin, I will be bringing my mom
    And dad who are visiting with me. If we fall back will the trail be easy to follow?

      This hike circles the lake, so there's no need to worry. Keep the lake on your left, and whenever there's a split in the path, take a left.

      October 30, 2013

    • Gavin A.

      There's only one place I can think of where the left hand turn dead ends after a hundred feet. It will be obvious, and you'll just circle back and catch the main trail.

    Would love to make this hike, however, my daughter has competition this particular Saturday. If anyone organizes anything for the weekend of Oct. 19, please give me a nudge! Thanks! Enjoy!

      We'll see you next time. Did you find a hike on the 19th? The Spooky Nights Nocturnal Hike?

    I haven't done a hike with the group since the Spring. It has been a busy year. I'm looking forward to getting back into it.
