NASHVILLE –Tennessee State Parks will offer free, guided hikes March 22. The second in the quarterly hikes program, the spring hikes will be offered at each of the 54 state parks, including Cedars of Lebanon.

“We are excited to welcome the spring season with hikes at each of our great parks,” Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation Deputy Commissioner Brock Hill said. “These hikes are a great way to get outside, exercise and enjoy nature with friends and family.”

From Reelfoot Lake to Fall Creek Falls to Warriors’ Path and every state park in between, the 2014 spring hikes are designed for all ages and abilities.
