Kingston Springs, Tennessee

Hike the Bluff Overlook Trail

0.6 Miles Total - Out-and-Back Trail

Originally 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.

Very short

Great short hike with beautiful views.

Super Fun!

Short little hike with great views! Watch for snakes though, as usual. 😬

Amazing!

I would definitely recommend this for fall time so you can see all the different colors of the trees. Very beautiful though and steep climb. I had my dog with me and I had to pick her up a few times to get her on the rocks but the view was definitely worth it.
