Thursday, November 21, 2019
Tennessee State Parks is set to build on its record-setting numbers of participants in its Signature Hike Series this year with free After Thanksgiving Hikes at all state parks on Nov. 29, officials said.
 
The state parks, friends of the parks groups and the Tennessee State Natural Areas will host hikes, interpretive programs and stewardship projects for all ages the day after Thanksgiving. 
 
"The After Thanksgiving Hikes are the last of the five Signature Hikes this year, following successful First Day Hikes, Spring Hikes, National Trails Day Hikes, and National Public Lands Day Hikes," officials said.
"Thus far this year, the state parks have had over 6,500 participants in the hikes, which have far exceeded the 3,242 participants in 2018.
 
"The state parks offer a variety of hikes. With more than 1,000 miles of trails, ranging from easy paved trails to rugged backcountry trails, the state parks have something for everyone."
