Hiking, canoeing club offers family friendly hike

staff report • Mar 13, 2013 at 8:52 AM

The Tennessee Eastman Hiking and Canoeing Club is offering a series of family friendly hikes for the community.

The first such hike will be held from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m., Sunday, March 17, at Warriors’ Path State Park.

The Warriors' Path Mountain Bike Trail System is also open to hiking. The park has roughly six miles of unpaved trails, mostly through the woods with some views of the lake, with elevation changes less than 300 feet.

The club will decide on the specific route(s) on the day of the hiked based on the interests of the group. Many of the trail sections loop back near the parking area so hikers can join for two miles or up to five or six miles.

The plan is to loop back near the parking area if anyone wishes to limit his or her hiking distance.

Hikers should meet at 1:30 p.m., in the gravel parking lot for the Warriors' Park State Park Mountain Bike Trail System at the end of Freeman Road. Please note that this trailhead is not located at the main part of Warriors' Path State Park but is located off Buttermilk Road in the Fall Creek area.

Bring water and snack and wear comfortable shoes.

For more information, call hike leader Tim McClain at (423) 239-5353 or e-mail tmcclain@eastman.com
