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.

      JT and Michelle are training for Yellowstone, so they prolly won't be doing CDome, unless we can talk them into it ;-)

    Ok, so apparently your fearless leader had a mental lapse. Howard has also made it off the trail, and was standing there talking with us. So, everyone is accounted for. Time to head home.

      Now that you mention it, Howard, I distinctly remember that comment. LOL. It was a beautiful day, and I had nothing else to do, but helping a neighbor with her groceries and going back into work (my own decision, not the company's, so no one was waiting on me, or anything).

    We are headed around the lake counterclockwise as usual. We will wait another 5 minutes. If you arrive late, you should still be able to catch up with us.
