After Thanksgiving hikes
After all that turkey and fixin's, Tennessee State Parks will offer free, guided hikes at all 56 state parks the day after Thanksgiving, Nov. 23. "Tennessee's state parks are once again offering the opportunity to get outdoors the day after Thanksgiving to engage in healthy, fun activities," says Brock Hill, deputy commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation. "It's a chance to explore the state parks with loved ones around the holidays, with skilled rangers leading the way." Hikes for all ages and abilities will be hosted including easy, peaceful strolls and rugged excursions. Each hike will be led by an experienced ranger, trained in interpreting the ecological, cultural and historical significance of Tennessee's state parks. Tennessee State Parks will feature the best that Tennessee lands have to offer, from hikes along historical and interpretive trails to stunning views of waterfalls, peaks and plateaus. Some hikes are designed for novice hikers at short distances, while others are lengthier and geared toward more experienced hikers. All the hikes are listed at;tnstateparks.com/about/special-events/after-thanksgiving-hikes/.
