3rd Saturday Hike: Randy Hedgepath
October 21, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm EDT
Join the Friends of Rugby State Natural Area for a free guided hike each month on the third Saturday. This hike will be led by Tennessee State Naturalist Randy Hedgepath, who likes to call it a “saunter” because he stops often to point out fascinating natural features. This will be Randy’s last official hike in Rugby since he is retiring soon. Come wish him well! NO REGISTRATION REQUIRED.
These free guided hikes are scheduled for the third Saturday of each month and start from the Historic Rugby Visitor Centre Porch (1331 Rugby Parkway, Rugby, Tennessee 37733) at 10 a.m. (Eastern Time). Leaders will be either local, from Friends of the Rugby State Natural Area, or from the state Department of Conservation. (No hikes are planned for June, July or August on account of expected hot weather.)
Bring a daypack, water and snacks to eat on the trail. These are is a 2-4 mile, moderate but family-friendly hikes. Dogs on leash are welcome. Wear sturdy footwear and dress for the weather.
After the hike, take some time to stroll around the historic town site. Bring a picnic, or visit the Canteen or RM Brooks Store for lunch!
