The Jackson Chapter of TTA was chartered in November, 2003, and serves hikers from the city of Jackson, as well as from Madison County and 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 Monday of the month at the Panera Bread 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 -- www.facebook.com/JacksonTTA. 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.

Upcoming Jackson Hikes and Programs:
In compliance with CDC coronavirus guidelines, all TTA organized hikes and group events are cancelled until further notice.
Statement from TTA President:As with each of you, we have been closely monitoring the daily changes in the spread of the COVID-19 Virus. During the past week we have listened to the recommendations outlined. To slow the spread The President’s Coronavirus Guidelines for America recommends avoiding social gatherings of more than 10 people. The health and safety of our members is at the forefront of our minds. We believe it is important to adhere to the best practices suggested by the Department of Health and CDC. Tennessee State Parks remain open at this time to visitors to hike/exercise as you chose; however, all park-hosted events from March 16 to March 31, 2020 are cancelled. If you chose to hike we encourage you to take your own soap-sanitizers as public restrooms can run out at times.
Therefore, Tennessee Trails Association Board of Directors request that our clubs and members follow the recommended protocol and cancel all TTA hikes and group events until further notice.
