Hike Cancelled. Window Cliffs State Natural Area is CLOSED Saturday due to high water levels in Cane Creek. Creek crossings are impassable and unsafe.  Located southwest of Cookeville, this 8 mile hike was rated difficult because of the elevation change and a number of crossings over Cane Creek. This hike will be rescheduled.

Murfreesboro Greenway Trail. Wednesday hike. 3 miles rated easy.  We’ll hike the newest section from the Central Valley trailhead to the Walter Hill trailhead. Due to the steep hill at the end, a shuttle will be available for anyone who wants to do only the first 1.5 miles. Meet at the Central Valley Road trailhead at 8:00 am. Bring snacks and water.

Stones River Paddle. Murfreesboro. Walter Hill Dam to the Mona Boat Ramp. 5.5 miles. This section is free flowing before slowing down as the river widens into the backwater of Percy Priest Lake. We’ll see beautiful rock formations along the river on this easy paddle. Meet at the Walter Hill Dam area at 10:00 am and a short car shuttle will have to be set up. Bring plenty of water, snacks and lunch.
