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 !!!
Tennessee Hiking Group and Nashville Hiking Meetup present a special edition of our popular Wednesday Night Urban Hike.
Cara Alexander, Park Ranger, Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park, will join us and provide a walking tour of the Mall, as well as some history of Germantown.
Departure Time: 11:00 a.m. SHARP (unless we have a good reason to wait)
Distance: ~ 5 miles
Hike Time: 2 hours
Join us for a walk 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, past LP Field, then back to Bicentennial Mall.
This "Hike" is for beginners and experienced hikers, alike. We will take it easy on this walk. No one is left alone, and there are no expectations...we do this for fellowship, exercise, and fun.
All are welcome to stay and enjoy lunch at Farmer's Market, after the hike.
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 .
