Apr 8 NARROWS OF THE HARPETH - 2 Miles Moderate  This hike follows alongside the river, passing through an area known as "The Narrows".  Here, tjhe Harpeth River in a 5 mile bend, nearly curves back on itself.  Highlights include a panoramic view of the area, and a man made tunnel that goes about 100 yards through the bluff at the narrowest point.  Back in 1890 Montgomery Bell, using slave labor bored the the tunnel using slave labor to provide water power for his iron ore mill.  We usually see lots of wildflowere so bring your books, also footware you don’t mind getting wet or muddy, and walking sticks for some slippery sections.  Meet for carpooling at Hendersonville First Presbyterian Church parking lot @ 9 AM CDT or at the Harris-Street Bridge trailhead at 10 Am CDT.  After the hike we’ll have lunch at Carl’s Perfect Pig in White Bluff. For further info contact Tunnel Breath Al.
