    Is the Big South Fork too far from you? I love it there. I drive from Baltimore MD to spent time there.

    If any of ya'll want to get together, start a thread in Trips and Expeditions. Folks can figure out when would work for everyone and where to meet. Even if you are new to the forum, feel free to kick off a meet. Day hikes, over nighters, weekend long... what ever you can do. It's worth the effort to get to meet other members. I'll do my best to be there. I've camped with over 100 members now and many of those more than once. Best people on earth here.

    I'm from Overton county in middle Tn and you could also check out Standing Stone state park or Dale Hollow lake.

    Chiggers and ticks are horrible this year. I'm down in Westpoint. I've been considering walking the 4 wheeler trails here since The dept of environment and conservation shut most of them down.

    and you might want to check the Pickwick Landing area near where TN, MS and AL intersect- There are parks in all three states nearby.
    Big Hill Pond is great! My black lab and I hiked there very often when I lived in Moscow (between Memphis and BHP). Not terribly challenging, but it was nothing to do a 10 mile day hike. Do a long hike in to camp, and a shot hike out the next day, or the other way around. Lots of distance options. Trails are not well marked, but get a park map and you can figure it out. The Tuscumbia shelter backcountry camping area was my favorite and always had water. If you want extensive GPS track logs from my hikes at Big Hill Pond, just msg me.

    One of my favorite places in southern middle Tennessee is the Walls of Jericho. It is along the TN AL boarder. It is a rugged trail with about a 1000ft decent. Great trail.

    If you ever get a chance to come up north of Manchester, you can hike several trails in Scotts Gulf. One of my favorite trails is the Virgin Falls trail. It's about 8-10 miles round trip and offers the most beautiful scenery and is rated moderate.

    New to the area, going to South Cumberland State Park in the next two weeks. Looks like a nice area. Anyone been there know of a good section?
