The Jackson Chapter of TTA was chartered in November, 2003, and serves hikers from the city of Jackson, as well as from Madsion County and the surrounding vicinity.

We organize hikes in West Tennessee and occasionally in Middle Tennessee, Northern Mississippi and Alabama, and Eastern Arkansas.

Chapter meetings are held at 6:00 p.m. CT on the first Tuesday of the month at the Perkins Restaurant on Vann Drive, Jackson TN 38305.

The chapter has a new Facebook page, which we will use to tell the community what events we have planned -- We also have a monthly newsletter.

  • Melinda Pearson is the chapter chair. Contact her by telephone at 731-225-4293 or by email for more information about TTA and the chapter's activites.
