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.

Call if you have questions or are running late,[masked]-8270.

      Hi Gavin--just saw this--thanks so much for letting us earn even a fraction of our BBQ intake that day! :) Memphis is a fun town, and I can't wait to go back.

    Guys I posted our group shot. I matched everyone I could remember up with their photo tag. If I missed you or mis-tagged you, please fix.

    Great mix of regulars, first-timers, and even some out-of-towners, and couldn't ask for better weather!

    In 5 minutes we are going to hit the trail. Latecomers, we are headed around the lake to the right, as usual.

    Guys, looks like it's going to be beautiful weather for a hike tomorrow. I suggest dressing in layers. It will be about 60° when we start the hike, but will be climbing up to almost 75° by the end of the hike.

    Getting confuse about directions from 385. Live right at Olive Branch and getting on 385 at Hacks Cross. Please help with direction

      Head down 385 to where it used to dead end (macon Road and parens. It now goes beyond there, but that's where you'll exit. Once you get off there you'll take a left (and you'll also start seeing signs for Herb Parsons Lake at that exit).
