Urban Hike II - 6.3 mile Night Walk through West End Nashville...

For all those Urban Hikers who are looking for something new, here is your chance. Join us for the Urban Hike II.


Departure Time @ Parthenon parking: 6:30 p.m. SHARP (unless we have a good reason to wait) Distance: 6.2 miles Hike Time: 2.25 hours Rating: Moderate
Join us for a walk from the Parthenon, up to the top of Love Hill for a 360 degree view of Nashville, through Fannie Mae Dees Park and a climb on the Park's giant dragon, up 21st street to Vanderbilt's campus, over to Music Row, then onto Chuy's Mexican restaurant for dinner (optional). After dinner, we will proceed to the Parthenon parking-lot via Vanderbilt's campus, fraternity alley, and basketball and football stadiums, See route map below 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. Chuy's Mexican dinner is optional at mile marker 5.2. If you don't want to eat, you can proceed to the Parthenon parking lot. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
LOCATION DETAILS: Centennial Park: 2600 West End Avenue Nashville, TN 37203 (you must go into Centennial Park and meet at the Parthenon parking lot) Hike route:

MISCELLANEOUS: Questions? Call Bob [masked]). Running late? Please call, or text, Bob. Can't make it? Please be courteous and change your RSVP as early as possible! Call Bob if it is a last minute change.
Posted times are departure times. We will leave on time unless we have a compelling reason to wait a few minutes longer.

    Hi there, I'm new to the group, to Nashville and to America. I'd love to join your hike this evening, meet some people and see new sights but I don't have a car yet :-( Let me see if I can arrange a lift and try to be there before 6.30... Please don't wait for me :-D

    Is anyone else not staying for dinner? I would like to hike straight thru without stopping for dinner, but this is my first time so won't know the route back to the Parthenon.

      Forgot my flashlight (don't have a headlamp). Hopefully I'll make it without one this time (I am coming straight from work). If anyone has an extra flashlight I can borrow I'll accept!
