Edgar Evins State Park
We had a total of 7 hikers Saturday, November 12 who hiked the Merritt Ridge and Millennium Trails at Edgar Evins State Park. We had gorgeous views of the lake and could see Center Hill Dam at one point. The Merritt Ridge section was challenging in some areas, but just enough to keep it interesting. The Merritt Ridge Trail has beautiful rock formations overlooking the lake. We came upon an area covered with yucca plants and blooming purple aster flowers. The trails are well marked and the weather was perfect. One of our hikers – James Herring is a long time member of TTA and built the kiosk behind the group picture.
Hikers: James Herring, Ann Jacobs, Denise Longie, Diane Manus from the Nashville chapter, Martin McCullough, Sara Pollard, and Jan Safavi.
