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.

    Here's information about the crawfish mound we found: http://www.cclockwood.com/stockimages/crawfish.htm

    I incorrectly identified it as the work of a mudpuppy.

    Good meetup. Was expecting muddy, but it wasn't bad. Overcast first part of hike helped keep it cool, but by the end we were all sweating.

    The slow group has made it back to the parking lot. All accounted for.

    About 2 more minutes and we are going to hit the trail, the regular direction, going counterclockwise around the lake.

    Looks like a small group, so far. If it doesn't get any bigger than this by tomorrow, I think we will all hang back with the slow group and enjoy the trail together.

      Hi Gavin. Weather.com says the rain will hold off until the afternoon. So I'll be there. I expect it might be muddy, but should be fun.

      Cool! And yes, I also expect it'll probably be muddy.

    I really wanna do this hike, but not sure since I'm not feeling well. Better luck next time

      Hope you make it next time. I have been fighting a cold for almost 2 weeks now, but last night, my brother gave me his secret recipe for knocking out a cold. Both he and my younger brother have tried it and consistently get good results. So, I'm giving it a try today :-)

    I really want to do this hike, but not able to sign up until late Friday night/early Saturday because my off time on graveshift varies. But might see me!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
