Edgar Evins State Park
Ten hikers hiked the 8.0 mile Millennium and Merritt Trails at Edgar Evins State Park. It was a sunny day for a hike in this beautiful park. We had hikers from the Plateau, East Tennessee and Upper Cumberland chapters to join us. We saw lots of early spring wildflowers along the way – cutleaf toothwort, anemone, spring beauties, bloodroot and trillium. We were pleasantly surprised at the abundance of wildflowers. The trail can be challenging, but has awesome views of the lake and Center Hill Dam. We enjoyed lunch on the shoreline rocks. Hikers were Pete Broehl, Roy Duncan, Cheryl Heckler, Craig McBride, Lora McBride, Sara Pollard, Jan Safavi, Pat Serio, Marcy Tucker and Wayne Yancey.
