March 18th will be the 16th year the Friends of Edgar Evins State Park have sponsored the popular day trip to various area waterfalls with lunch at a restaurant along the way. It usually sells out early so it is best to make reservations without delay.
After signing in at Edgar Evins State Park's Visitors Center at 8 a.m. we will ride a school bus to Ozone Falls, Roaring River Falls and the City Lake Park Falls. We will eat lunch at the Golden Corral in Cookeville and return to the park about 3:30 p.m. Expect short walks on uneven ground. Cost is $15 per person, plus lunch. Reservations required. Cameras and walking sticks are encouraged.
On-line reservations may be made at www.foeesp.com/waterfall-tour If help is needed making reservations please phone the park office, (931) 858-2114 or (800) 250-8619, for contact information for Fount Bertram, President of Friends of Edgar Evins. Fount or Mrs. Bertram will be happy to assist you.
