ALERT: Tennessee State Parks are cancelling all park-hosted events from March 16 to March, 31, 2020. Unfortunately, this also affects Spring Hikes. Parks remain open to visitors at this time. For more information about event cancellations and our efforts to protect visitors and staff, please visit our Keeping Visitors Healthy page.
Longer days, warmer weather and the emerging spring wildflowers are sure signs that spring is here. Join us on Saturday, March 21st to welcome the new season.
Our annual Spring Hike is a great opportunity to shed the winter blahs, make new friends and explore Tennessee State Parks' natural side. Whether you are looking for a short nature trail or an adventurous, all-day endeavor through a park's most remote stretches, you'll find what you're looking for at a Tennessee State Park. All hikes will be guided by park staff who can speak to the natural, cultural and historical treasures that Tennessee State Parks has to offer. From the cypress swamps of the Mississippi River in West Tennessee to the rugged ridge tops and waterfalls in the middle of the state to the majestic mountains in the East, every park showcases a unique piece of Tennessee’s outdoor beauty. Happy Spring, from Tennessee State Parks!
Please remember, schedules and events may change - contact the park or hike leader for more information or to confirm events.
