First Hike at Big Hill Pond

Join State Naturalist Randy Hedgepath for the first hike of the new year at Big Hill Pond State Park. We will walk the boardwalk and visit the observation tower and learn a lot about nature in winter. We will walk the Tuscumbia Loop and visit the overnight shelter near the Tuscumbia River too. This is a 6 mile hike of moderate difficulty. Bring a lunch and we will picnic at a scenic spot. Children and leashed dogs are welcome. Carpool will meet at the Germantown Baptist Church at 830 AM.

    Fantastic group and great "First Day" hike in cool, slightly rainy weather. Thanks to Randy and Howard and the folks at Big Hill Pond SP!

    Had a great time! The rangers were very nice. They gave us a free "First Hike: t-shirt:-), built a fire by the tower and offered us drinks and snacks.

    Some of us are leaving the Arlington Visitors Ctr at 8:30. I have one spot left in my car (Roufie and Leonard are riding with me). I will post before 7:30 if I am not going due to the weather.

      Since Marc is coming, I won't be able to ride with you. I've been battling a cold since yesterday. I hope I'm back up to speed tomorrow.

    Randy, This is my favorite spot within a short drive of Memphis but not sure if I will make this trip. FYI for everyone who went on the June 23rd trip. As of my last trip out there at the end of October the Boardwalk was completely repaired.
