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.

    It was good to have my oldest son (16) along on this hike.

    My son is sick. The cool damp air would not be a good idea. So, hopefully we'll see you guys on one of the hikes later this month.

    Gavin, if you're leading do you have a cell phone # to be reached at in case people run late?

    I'm up for it. Sorry I won't see you Dana but I do understand. Forecast callsf or rain in the afternoon so looks like it will be good tomorrow moring. I need a hike. It's probably going to be muddy but I have yet to hike Herb Parsons without sloshing through the muck at some point, so I'm ok with it.

    I'm switching over to this hike, to help out, so Dana can concentrate on her house.

      Desi, I can take over hosting this one, if you want. Just let me know.

    Effective immediately, I am going to stop leading weekend hikes. I need to focus on getting my house taken care of. Sorry:(

    April 29, 2013

    • Gavin A.

      I totally understand.

    I've RSVP'd as a No on this one, since I'm signed up to go on the Mid South Live Steamers and Stillhouse Hollow Falls trip, but I may bow out of that one, if I can't get the kids up that early, in which case, I'll change my RSVP and come out and hike Herb Parsons.
