Tennessee's state parks have been set to offer free, guided hikes to celebrate National Trails Day early in June.

State officials said the ranger led-hikes set for June 4 at all 56 state parks will include historical tours, waterfall viewing, trail building, and more.

The event has been hosted annually on the first Saturday in June in coordination with the American Hiking Society. The purpose has been to promote and celebrate the importance of trails in the U.S.

Participants were encouraged to bring water and food and wear long pants and appropriate footwear. To find a hike, those interested should visit them online by clicking here.
