State Parks Celebrate with Annual Spring Hike

Tennessee State Parks will welcome the new season with the annual Spring Hikes.

Deputy Commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Environment Conservation Anne Marshall said the event gives hikers several options to choose from.

“The spring hikes are a great way to explore our parks, as well as get to know other people who share the outdoors in a group setting,” said Marshall. “Our state parks staff has valuable expertise to share about our parks to enhance the experience. There are hikes for just about every taste.”

According to a press release, hikes range from short nature trails to all-day treks through remote stretches.

Edgar Evins State Park, Fall Creek Falls, and Cummins Falls State Parks are among others participating in the free event.

Those interested in participating can sign up on the Tennessee State Parks website. Hikes are scheduled to begin on March 23.
