Urban Hike - 5 Mile Night Walk - Downtown N'ville - Great for New Members, too!

See downtown Nashville and its landmarks on foot and up close! Our weekly urban hikes have become a popular trek for beginners and expert hikers alike. This is a wonderful opportunity for first-time visitors the see Music City !!!

Departure Time @ Thai Phooket: 6:30 p.m. SHARP (unless we have a good reason to wait)

Distance: 5.2 miles

Hike Time: 2 hours

Rating: Moderate

Join us for a walk from Thai Phooket, past LP Field, over the Cumberland River, through  Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park, into Germantown, back through Bicentennial Mall, past the State Capitol (via 240 steps), through downtown, past the Schermerhorn Symphony Center, across the Cumberland River via the Shelby Avenue Pedestrian Bridge, once again past LP Field, then back to Thai Phooket, where we experience an excellent (optional) Thai dinner.

This "Hike" is for beginners and experienced hikers, alike. Feel comfortable walking fast or slow. We typically split into two (or more) groups, and an experienced member will always "sweep" the trail. No one is left alone, and there are no expectations...we do this for fellowship, exercise, and fun. The hike pauses at selected locations, so we may regroup and permit those who need a rest, time to catch their breath. The hike resumes when I am comfortable that everyone is ready. This also helps assure that we don't lose anyone along the way.

All are welcome to stay and enjoy a great post-hike Thai dinner.

Dress for the weather, wear comfortable footwear, and bring some water. See downtown Nashville up close, stop the world from spinning in Bicentennial Mall, and ring the State Capitol Liberty Bell (it is loud and fun!). The privilege of ringing the bell goes to the first lady who reaches it, and who is hiking this hike for the first time .

    Hey, Urban Hikers, go to the event photos, select the group photo (or any other(s), if you are not in the group photo) and Tag yourselves!
    It's a lot of work for the event host to Tag everyone, and it can be difficult to ID new members.
    Tagging helps the others know who you are, and opens up communication.
    Thanks! Happy hiking!
    Frank
