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 on 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.

This is an easy hike on well marked trails, perfect for those new to hiking. We hike between 2-4 hours.

Call if you have questions or are running late,[masked]-8080.

      Yes, that's correct. Not the best camera in the world, but it amazes me sometimes with a really nice shot like that.

    Another good hike. Not as cold as I expected it to be.

    On my way had to take detour thanks to police rd block. Ugh!

      Yep. All the way up here, but on the opposite side of the freeway.

    I posted on the 7:30 hike, and might as well on here. There are many icy bridges and overpasses. 240 has about 8 wrecks going on right now at 630am. 385 and 40 may be the same so be careful and go slow. It may be okay by the 9am hike, but plan ahead.

      Thanks for the heads up. Weather is showing icy rain for the entirety of the 9am hike (hike usually concludes at noon).

    Howdy folks. We get a lot of people getting lost getting to Herb Parsons, usually 2 or 3 folks EVERY time we hike there. Please, even if it is faster to go a different route, consider taking 40 E, to 64/15 E, to 385 E, to 193 E (Macon Rd), to Fisherville Lake Road. If you go a different route and get lost, I will not be able to assist you because I do not know the area. I would LOVE to have a hike where no one gets lost en route.
