NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee State Parks is offering free guided hikes at each of the 54 state parks on March 22.

Officials said the 2014 Spring Hikes are designed for all ages and abilities.

Some hikes will be approximately one mile in length and tailored for novice hikers, while others are lengthier and geared toward more experienced hikers.

Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation Deputy Commissioner Brock Hill says the hikes are a great way to get outside, exercise and enjoy nature with friends and family.
