Cheek Bend Trail – August 27th

Since the weather has been rather ghastly, we thought we would try something low key.  The hike is 1.8 miles and considered easy. It should take about an hour to complete.  It is mostly shady and will be a summer hike.  The trail goes along the bluff overlooking the Duck River and includes a side trip through a cave.  You might want to bring a flashlight, water and a snack for the hike. 

We will meet at McDonalds on 4908 Main Street, Spring Hill at 8:00 a.m. Please email Carolyn Watson at watsoncrt@yahoo.com if you are interested in going.

Though most of Long Hunter’s trails are relatively flat, this trail has a slight increase in elevation as it leaves the shore and climbs up the bluffs overlooking the lake.
