Need a break from resolutions and the hustle & bustle of the season? Then we have a great opportunity for you to go outside, get some exercise, meet like-minded individuals, improve Long Hunter State Park, and leave a lasting legacy.

On this day we will continue our expansion of the wild and scenic Jones Mill Trail, but we can't do it without our wonderful volunteers! This event is organized by the Friends of Long Hunter State Park.

If you wish to join us for this trail work day, meet at the Jones Mill parking lot (9933 Barnett Rd., Mt Juliet, TN 37122) at 8 a.m. We will work until approximately 12 noon. Please wear appropriate work clothes and sturdy shoes, and don't forget water and snacks. Tools and gloves will be provided.

When completed, the Jones Mill Trail is sure to be one of the best biking (and hiking!) trails in Middle Tennessee.

We hope to see you there, and thanks for your support!
