Edwin Warner Park Annex at Burch Reserve.
We are having a hike on a Thursday. The Burch Reserve is a place for wildlife and quiet hikes, according to Edwin Warner Park Nature Center Director Vera Roberts. The web site also states, "It adds another 3 miles of primitive trails to Warner Parks, lots of habitat for wildlife and just increased green space for the city of Nashville," Roberts said Friday, a day before the grand opening of the park.  The hike has some altitude change and also provides good exercise.

We will meet at Williamson County McDonald’s (4908 Main Street), Spring Hill at 10:00 am.  If anyone wants to meet us there, please plan on 11:00 a.m. at the Warner Park Nature Center.  We will cross Hwy 100 and start from the trail head.
