Tennessee's state parks will offer free, guided hikes to celebrate National Trails Day early next month.

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

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