Third Saturday Hike with Jack & Jalen

Third Saturday Hike with Jack & Jalen

October 19 @ 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. October is a great time to hike with leaf colors starting to change. NO REGISTRATION REQUIRED. This hike will feature the return of Jack Gugino & Jalen Prather as knowledgeable leaders who have proven they can show us things we often overlook. Jalen is a fungi whiz, so we’ll be looking for mushrooms to identify, among many other things.

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 held in 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 Rugby Canteen or RM Brooks Store for lunch!
