Nashville Hiking Meetup

Thousands of local hikers keep an eye on the Nashville Hiking Meetup webpage…and show up on the trail whenever they feel like getting outdoors.

In today’s go-go-go, everybody’s behind, got to get more done world, it seems like our work week keeps us stressed to the max. That makes our weekends even more important, as way to get out and get away from all the stresses of our jobs. But sometimes we’re just too busy to find different things to do or meet new people. One group of  Tennesseans has found away around that time crunch. They meet up through the internet…first on a webpage, then live and in person…and always with a common goal of outdoor adventure. Wild Side Guide Craig Owensby takes us to the woods with some members of the Nashville Hiking Meetup exploring the trails at Long Hunter State Park, located just outside of Nashville along the shores of Percy Priest Lake.

If you’re interested in getting “hooked up” with Nashville Hiking Meetup, it’s easy…just visit their website or follow them on Facebook. It’s a great way to get out and meet new people while exploring the Wild Side. Which is especially helpful if you are new to town…and a lot more of you are. Urban planners predict that Middle Tennessee’s population will grow by about a million people over the next 25 years. That means it’s even more important to preserve our natural spaces for those who will follow.
