The Savage Gulf Preservation League Chapter of the Friends of South Cumberland State Park is holding the fourth annual “Take a Walk on the Wild Side” on Sunday, Nov. 2, at Stone Door and the Beersheba Springs Hotel. 
Wally Bigbee, past president of the SGPL, said, “We are pleased to have the opportunity to host people from all across the state who love South Cumberland State Park and want to work to preserve and protect it.”
FSC president Ty Burnette noted, “We are excited to have our fall event in Beersheba Springs and connect with our supporters on this end of the park. All interested in learning about the FSC’s initiatives in land preservation and environmental education and ways to get involved to support the state park are encouraged to join us.”
The event starts with a hike at Stone Door in Savage Gulf, one of the ten areas that make up the South Cumberland State Park. Ranger Aaron will lead the hour-long hike to the fabled rock formation and overlook, a walk of about 20 minutes each way.
The hike begins at 1 p.m. at the Stone Door parking lot, 1183 Stone Door Road, Beersheba Springs.
“Whether you hike it or not,” all are invited from 3:00-4:30 to the historic Beersheba Springs Hotel for refreshments, a chance to celebrate the new partnership of the FSC and the Savage Gulf Preservation League (which has now become a chapter of the FSC), and learn about plans for the park and volunteer opportunities.
No RSVP required, and refreshments are provided by the FSC and the SGPL. For more information, contact Margaret Matens,, or 931-924-2623.
