Chapter Hike Schedule

Sat. July 29 - Need Hike Leader

AUG 2017

Sat. Aug 5 – Stones River National Battlefield. Murfreesboro. 3.6 mile loop trail rated easy. The trail is flat and there’s access points to leave the trail. This loop hike goes throughout the preserved portion of the battlefield where the Union and the Confederacy battled for control of the road and railroad connecting Nashville with states to the south. With troops totaling more than 80,000 men combined, the two armies fought during the three day period, starting December 31, 1862. If time permits, we’ll visit the visitor center for a slide show and displays about this battle and the Civil War. For more information or to sign up, contact Jennifer Zahn at 615-943-8853 or

Tue. Aug 8 – Chapter Meeting – 7:00 pm. Chapter member Ron Dunn will share his 2012 trip to Scotland and the Orkney Islands. The Orkney Islands are located off the northern coast of Scotland and are rich in history. He’ll be sharing photos and stories from Loch Ness, Scapa Flow, Skara Brae and more.

Sat. Aug 12 – Window Cliffs State Natural Area. Located in Putnam County, southwest of Cookeville. 8 miles rated difficult because of the elevation change and a number of crossings over Cane Creek. There is a bluff that separates the upstream and downstream parts of the creek. The bluff has eroded from both sides causing an opening to develop, which is how the name “Window Cliffs” came about. Bring water, snacks, and lunch. For more information or to sign up, contact Tony Jones at 615-397-4463 or
