Great Local Hike Practice

This sis a great trail for any training done for hikes in the south east US. It reminds of some of the hikes in the Smokies. It's nice because it's close for me.

Great Elevation Changing Trail Run

This is one of the more challenging trail routes in middle Tennessee. Not saying too much when compared to western states but I found it to be a great loop for a glute burning trail run. Fair amount of people and dogs even on a weekday so get there early for a cooler, less populated go of it. Trail crosses several paved roads and horse trails so pay attention to the red markers. I added a few "inspiration points" into my loop to get closer to 5 miles. Adding the connector trail adds some more mileage too for those looking for a slightly longer option. Beautiful in the fall! No major view points but the colors and peaceful nature on the trail are worth exploring. Should also note this trail is naturally a loop. Description above notes a connector but that is inaccurate. It's not an out-and-back but a loop around the park. Good news for those not wanting to see the same thing twice.
