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 near 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.
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 (http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&t=h&msa=0&msid=206003933507303071996.0004a2cacf2999b23a952&ll=35.069345,-89.479523&spn=0.386649,0.591888&z=11) of our regular meetup locations.
