Register today for one of the free, ranger-led hikes at all 56 state parks to celebrate the coming of spring on March 24.
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.
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.
Spring Hikes are one of five signature hikes offered at Tennessee State Parks throughout the year. These hikes – First Day, Spring, National Trails Day, National Public Lands Day, and Day After Thanksgiving – offer visitors the chance to experience the outdoors with the support and education of our trained ranger staff.
