Wednesday. August 28.  Hendersonville Arboretum.  2 miles MODERATE.  Beginning from the ESA parking lot, we will hike the Arboretum on a paved trail and then the U.S. Corp of Engineers Environmental Study area on a foot trail, which is unimproved and convoluted. We will return via the Arboretum trail back to the ESA parking lot (very little elevation change on this hike).  We will get an advanced view of a new walking trail proposed (but not yet approved) across a cove from the Arboretum. Since part of this hike takes us on an unimproved foot trail. you might want to wear long pants to discourage ticks, chiggers and poison ivy and wear footwear you don’t mind getting wet and muddy. Also suggested: water, sunscreen, insect repellant, hiking poles. Meet at 9am at the big ESA parking lot, 502-498 Walton Ferry Road which is 1.7  miles from Gallatin Road on the right ( GPS and Google map coordinates 36.280507 - 86.623728). After the hike, we will go for brunch/lunch at a local restaurant.
