Event Description: Let’s Hike! And let’s do it at Tennessee’s newest State Park, Rocky Fork. We will meet at the parking area at 9:00 am and spend the day on the trail for a 6-mile hike in the Blue Ridge physiographic province. Please dress for the weather and wear sturdy hiking shoes, as the terrain is fairly rugged. Also remember to bring plenty of water and pack a lunch for the trail. Join us as we highlight the conservation efforts of both Tennessee State Parks and Tennessee Division of Natural Areas. For travelling guests, overnight accommodations can be made at Roan Mountain State Park. Trip leaders; Sam King has spent the last 7 years working for Tennessee State Parks and the Division of Natural Areas as a Park Ranger and an Ecologist, and Jesse Germeraad is the Park Manager at Rocky Fork and has worked as a Tennessee Park Ranger since 2010.
