Hike the Bluff Overlook Trail
Tennessee › Harpeth River State Park
Added by Bailey Robbins
Nashville has a lot to offer, but natural overlooks are hard to come by. If you're looking for a quiet place with a beautiful view, this 30-minute drive outside of the city is exactly what you need.
From the parking lot, walk up the same road the direction you entered. Just a little up the hill to the left, you will see the trailhead for the Bluff Overlook. It's only about a 0.25 mile hike, but the initial walk up the hill is steep. Once you reach the top, there are several points to sit and look out over the river as it flows through miles of Tennessee farmland and hills.

You dont have to far to get to anything really. And theres lots of caves you can find, me and my younger brother explored through one cave for like 15 minutes and then crawled our way back for another 15 minutes
