The hikes fit every level, from short easy-to-walk trails to longer treks through more adventurous terrain, each featuring the natural settings that are so diverse across the state.

“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, our state parks staff has valuable expertise to share about our parks to enhance the experience. There are hikes for just about every taste.”

Anne Marshall, acting deputy commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation.

The hikes are a chance to see early spring wildflowers, discuss wildlife specific to the park, take photos of magnificent scenery, and take in the features that make each state park unique.

Hikers are urged to prepare for the weather, have sturdy footwear, and bring water and snacks. Some may want to bring hiking sticks. Participants can go online to find a hike that best fits their interest at https://tnstateparks.com/about/special-events/spring-hikes/.
