Nashville

Bledsoe Creek State Park Loop Trail, 4.5 miles, rated moderate. Total distance includes all the little there-and-backs we can take along the way.  This trail basically traces the perimeter of the park and provides views of Old Hickory Lake along much of its length. It combines the outer reaches of four trails: the Shoreline, Birdsong, Big Oak, and High Ridge. You’ll want sturdy shoes, water and snacks. We’ll be hiking in varied terrain that was once good hunting ground for  native American tribes that included the Cherokee, Shawnee, Creek and Chickamauga. We aren’t likely to see wildlife they hunted, but the hike date puts us in the early part of fall bird migration so bring your binoculars.

Sept 1 - Chapter Meeting -   Join us at 6:00 PM for the buffet.  The meeting begins at 7:00 PM.  At the September Meeting, Mr. Greg Smith of the National Park Service (NPS) and Mr. Tony Turnbow, former executive director of the Natchez Trace Parkway Association (NTPA) will discuss maintenance and development of segments of the National Scenic Trail along the Natchez Trace and the benefits of exercise in the outdoors.  The National Park Service is recruiting volunteers to assist in maintaining the 66 miles of existing National Scenic Trail along the Natchez Trace.  If successful, with this endeavor the NPS is considering constructing a new 22-mile long trail from the Gordon House to Meriwether Lewis Park.  Mr. Turnbow has teamed with Vanderbilt Medical Center to encourage exercise in the fresh air and develop a system for measuring the benefits of the individuals participating. This is an opportunity for the Columbia / Franklin Chapter to help facilitate and organize the participation of other TTA Chapters and other groups who may have interest in trail building, trail maintenance and health benefits.

Sept 12 -  Duck River -  The Wilhoite Mill Trail runs mostly along the banks of the Duck River.  We will park in the gravel lot at the Wilhoite Mill Trail Parking Area, which is south of Chapel Hill.  If you are driving south towards Henry Horton State Park on Highway 31A (Hwy 11), Wilhoite Mill Parking is to the east just before the bridge that spans the Duck River.  For those with GPS, the coordinates are:  N 35.593, W 86.696.  We will hike 2 miles out and 2 miles back. One highlight will be to take a short rest near the turn around at an observation tower.  Bring plenty of water and a snack. As this is a somewhat central location the leader suggests that most of us meet at the Trail Head at 8:00 AM rather than all meeting at McDonald’s in Spring Hill.  Some in Columbia and Spring Hill may desire to arrange a carpool.  Please register with Russell Smith at carving082334@aol.com or by phone at 615-790-1833.  Note:  be at the trail head at 8:00 AM.

Sept 26 - Nathan Bedford Forrest State Park -   Jane Coffey will lead the 5 Mile Trail, which will actually be ~5.4 miles.  The hiking trail is a natural surface trail and is considered moderate.  We will leave from the Tollgate Medical Center (1106 Elliston Way, Thompson Station, TN) at 7:30 A.M.  The travel time to the park is approximately an hour and 20 minutes depending on traffic and construction. We will take Hwy 840 west to join I-40 so we should be able to avoid any weekend construction on I-40 around Nashville.  Please be there at 7:15 a.m. so that we can arrange any necessary carpooling.  If anyone outside of the Columbia/Franklin chapter would like to meet us there, we can meet at the Interpretive Center in the park.  Register with Jane Coffey at (615)-516-6551 or jecoffey0644@gmail.com.  Please leave some form of contact information in case of rain or other seasonal weather disruptions.
