New Years Day Hike - Fount

We will be hiking the Millennium Trail at Edgar Evins State Park on New Years Day. This will be a combined hike with the state parks again. We will meet at covered picnic shelter #1 at Edgar Evins at 10:00 am January 1 and drop off our traditional New Years foods, then proceed to the Millennium Trail Head and hike the 3.5 mile moderate trial. After the hike, we’ll go back to the shelter and have lunch. There are electrical outlets, restrooms,running water and picnic tables. The park will furnish firewood so we can have a roaring fire in the fireplace. There is room to set up Coleman stoves and other devices to heat the food. For those who want more hiking, the 2 mile, moderate, Highland Rim Nature Trail will be open for an after noon hike.The parks department is providing commemorative “First Hike” T-Shirts for those that register early.Get your names in ASAP if you want a shirt. NO PETS PLEASE. Contact Fount Bertram...  or call (615) 765-5357

This is a multi-chapter hike which is open to all TTA Chapters and individuals, as well as their guests. Edgar Evins State Park Ranger Mark Taylor will lead both hikes up front while Fount will stay back with the slower hikers. So people with differing hiking abilities will be accomodated. "First Hike 2013" shirts in a variety of sizes will be furinshed by the State of TN for those who sign up early as long as supplies last.

Now have 23 signed up from TTA across the state. Better hurry to sign-up now if you want a t-shirt! They will go to the first registered and attended hikers.
