The Annual New Years Day Hike and Feast

Jan. 1 - The Annual New Years Day Hike and Feast will be at Edgar Evins State Park, 3.5 to 5 miles total, easy to moderate. We will hike the Jack Clayborn Millennium Trail...3.5 miles...in the morning and the Highland Rim Nature Trail...2.0 miles...in the afternoon. The hike is in conjunction with the Tennessee State Parks 75th Anniversary. The Parks Department wants to schedule hikes in all of our 53 State Parks on New Years Day. If you can’t join our hike, contact your local park to see what they have scheduled. The traditional New Years Feast will be a major part of the day. Bring your favorite New Years culinary contribution to share. We’ll have electrical outlets to warm/heat your food. The park is also furnishing firewood so we can have a roaring, crackling fire to warm ourselves. We will meet at Picnic Shelter #1, located at the marina parking lot, at 10:00 am to drop off food and to carpool to the trail head. After the hike we’ll return to the shelter for our meal. We’ll plan to eat somewhere around 1:00 pm. We will then proceed to the Visitors Center and hike the nature trail. This is a multi-chapter event and we encourage participation by all our chapters...The old adage...”What you do on New Years Day, you will do all year” applies. Hopefully we will all hike all year long! For further information, directions to the park and questions or comments, contact Fount Bertram...(615) 765-5357 or fwbertram@dtccom.net
