Tennessee - Wildflower Walk at Overton Park

When: Wednesday, March 28th, 2018. Meet at 5:45 pm, we will try to start hiking by 5:50 pm so we can be finished before sunset. Text me at 423-314-5158 if you're running behind. 

Where: Overton Park Old Growth Forest trails. Meet at the Abe Goodman Golf Clubhouse by the giant brown sculpture. 

Hike Info: Overton Park is a beautiful park located smack dab in the heart of Memphis. About 4 miles of woodland trails wind through the old growth forest in a maze-like fashion. We will enter the trails near the clubhouse and continue through the main loop on to the green and red loops. We will hike about 3 miles through a stunning display of wildflowers during their peak bloom. This hike is flat with a GWH rating of green and is perfect for beginner hikers. Ladies only please!

Directions: The Abe Goodman Golf Clubhouse is located at the very end of Golf Drive by the golf course and is best accessed via one of the Poplar Ave entrances.

Preparing for hike: make sure to eat a meal or snack and hydrate, wear comfortable layers (as you hike you will warm up), tennis shoes or hiking boots with good tread, at least a liter or more of water, hiking snack, first aid supplies as needed, sunglasses, hat, camera, and most importantly a positive attitude. Any other questions or concerns feel free to ask in comments below!
