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 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.

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.

    I'm a bit behind u guys, but I have ended up on a street about 2 miles into the trail... Have I taken a wrong turn??

      Elizabeth, sorry I didn't see this earlier. So glad we ended up meeting you on the trail :-)

    In about five minutes we are going to head counterclockwise around the lake and stragglers are welcome to catch up with us.

    I am going to have to back out. It is too cold for me and I don't have appropriate cold weather gear. I guess it is time to update my wardrobe.

      Agreed! Dress warm all! It will be about 37°, sunny but chilly, and "warm up" to 46° during the course of our hike. Remember that we are hiking around a lake, too, so cooler temps, just on account of that.

      … but hiking will warm us up :-)

    I thought I had signed up for this, but name is not on the "going" list - let me know if there is an issue.

    As to the assault, that could happen ANYWHERE at anytime and I agree that the size of the group would make someone think twice before doing such a thing. I presume the person assaulted was alone as you only mention one person - in today's society one should never be out alone, especially in such an isolated area

      Not sure why you were not in the RSVP list. I have added you manually.
