Nov 4 - MERIWETHER LEWIS LOOP-This hike is centered on Meriwether Lewis Monument, just off the Natchez Trace Parkway.  The entire loop is 3.5 miles.  We may not hike the entire trail.  That will be decided as a group when we get to the trailhead.  The hike is rated easy to moderate.  There are several gullies on a portion of the trail that will require hiking up and down several times.  Other areas are a bit more even.  Restrooms are available at the trailhead.  Meet at the first Presbyterian Church parking lot at 172 W Main St. in Hendersonville at 8Am CST for carpooling.  Or meet at the trailhead at about 10AM CST.  Boots, poles, water and snacks would be advisable.  Call the hike leader for more info.
