It’s almost winter, so you’re probably chomping at the bit for some cuddle up rainy nights and a bit of comfort food. But it won’t take long to feel the fire in your heart and a burning in your bones – the outdoors calls to you, Tennessee. That’s why we’ve put together a couple of fantastic spots for your spring – when it finally gets here. Take a look!
10) Ocoee Run - Ocoee River Area
It's going to take roughly three hours to follow this entire twisty trail, but almost ten miles is going to make you feel REALLY good.
9) Volunteer Trail - Hermitage
Four miles in pretty little Hermitage is easy enough to take the kids, plus you can bring your dog and loop the lake!
8) Long Hunter State Park Trails
26 miles through Long Hunter is going to put a dent in that burger you had yesterday - for sure. It's a rough one!
7) Fiery Gizzard Trail - Grundy County
12.5 miels of the sweetest Tracy City you've ever seen, you'll find a waterfall and prime spots for camping year- round. This one is ranked strenuous, so be careful!
6) Alum Cave Bluffs Trail - Gatlinburg
At close to four and a half miles, you can find the trail off of Newfound Gap Road. This is recommended for experienced hikers only!
5) Percy Warner Park - Nashville
A great place to hang out with your friends or bring your curious kiddos, Percy Warner is a favorite amongst Nashvillians - even Taylor Swift has been spotted getting her steps in over here.
4) Chimney Tops Trail - Gatlinburg
2.2 miles makes for a gorgeous hike that's as pretty on the eyes as it is easy on the legs.
3) Mossy Ridge Trail - Nashville
Located in Percy Warner Park, you can loop almost five miles in a moderate zone. You HAVE to come during autumn!
2) Radnor Lake South Loop - Brentwood
Radnor is way up here on the list because it's great for kids and families with animals. Easy, fun, and fairly short Radnor is where you'll run into a few celebrities looking to clear their minds.
1) Laurel Falls - Great Smoky Mountains
You can do Lauren Falls in less than an hour! It's an easy trail to a pretty little waterfall and stays fairly busy with tourists. Bring a group and catch your breath when you see how absolute gorgeous East Tennessee truly is.
