Long Hunter State Park is situated along the shore of J. Percy Priest Lake. It consists of four units: Couchville, Baker's Grove, Bryant Grove and Sellars Farm. Picnicking, swimming, hiking, backpacking, boating, fishing, nature photography and wildlife observation are among the activities available to park visitors. Planned activities include interpretive and recreation programs for the general public and environmental education programs for school and other interested groups.
The parking lot is fairly small. I went on a Monday afternoon so there were only a handful of vehicles. At first, it's as if you are pre hiking before the real hiking! Jkjk. There were people coming back while running. I guess people like to work out in these parts of the woods. Lol. I made it to a sign that said "Volunteer Trail" or "Day Loop Trail." None said how long the trail is until you get over half way done. Lol. I knew I should take the day loop since who knew when I'd make it out alive in the Volunteer trail. The volunteer trail is 6 miles one way or round trip 12 miles. That's after you made it to the 3 way path that they tell you. Lol. There were benches here and there. Beautiful parts to sit at and gaze or eat. Lots of rocks! Be careful! Almost died over a tree root.
