The purpose of Friends of Long Hunter State Park is to help protect and improve the park environment for those who use it; and to support the park staff in its preservation and educational efforts.

We encourage you to join us in our efforts to assist Long Hunter State Park by becoming a member of our organization.

The support given through Yearly Membership Dues, Sponsors, and donations assist in many worthy causes. Your contributions are an investment in the future of Long Hunter State Park.

Upcoming Events

We offer many events throughout the year. We also have a full events calendar. The following is a short list of upcoming events:

Hike with Mike

Sunday, December 21 at 9:00am

Feeling a little Holi-dazed? Need a brief respite from the mayhem? Join us for an easy hike in Long Hunter State Park. We'll walk the 4.5 mile Day Loop Trail, connecting with the Volunteer Trail. We also will hike a portion of the Volunteer Trail as it winds along the shoreline of Percy Priest Lake. The trails are rated as easy. This hike is close to home and shouldn't take too much time away from your last minute shopping . . . if you need to get back to the mayhem. Bring good hiking shoes, snacks & water. Limited to 16 frazzled holiday hikers. (Yes, this includes me.)
