7. Ozone Falls Trail - .8 miles
This cute little hike is located in Crab Orchard Tennessee, which is roughly an hour west of Knoxville. Interesting fact: it was used in the filming of "The Jungle Book," in addition to Fall Creek Falls.
6. Stones River Greenway - 10.2 miles
This is a long one. It connects Shelby Bottoms Park to Percy Priest Lake. It's famed for marathon trainers and is paved.
5. Harpeth River Greenway - 6 miles
This is a beautiful spot that's only 30 minutes from downtown Nashville. The greenway follows both the Little Harpeth and Harpeth Rivers.
4. Wolf River Greenway - 2.6 miles
The greenway runs along the Wolf River in Germantown, located right outside of our pretty Memphis. Supposedly, plans are being figured to stretch the greenway all the way to Mud Island.
3. Fiery Gizzard Trail - 12.5 miles (one way!)
This trail is VERY difficult, so keep that in mind. It does, however, have stunning views of rock formations, fantastic waterfalls and cascading creeks. It is also known as a top 25 trail in the whole of the United States. Whoa.
2. Laurel Falls Trail - 2.3 miles
It's an extremely popular thing, to hike up to the the 80-foot tall Laurel Falls. Pro tip: come early or late in the day, because parking is SUPER limited.
1. Grotto Falls Trail - 2.6 miles
The trail runs behind Grotto Falls, which measures 25 feet high. It's the only waterfall you can walk behind in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, so you can mark that off your bucket list.
