Upcoming Memphis 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.

April 24-26, Cumberland Trail Hike, Soddy-Daisy, TN.

This will be our spring weekend trip. Details will come later, but it will be much like previous trips. Friday afternoon and Sunday morning will have 4-5 mile hikes and Saturday will be a 7 mile hike with an option to shorten it to 5 miles. There is only one hotel in Soddy-Daisy, so you might want to reserve early. It is the Hometown Inn, http://www.hometowninnsoddydaisy.com/, (423) 332-7755. TripAdvisor gives it 3 stars out of 5, and the current price is $85.
