Region: West

Winding along the shoreline of the Tennessee River between Carl Cowan Park and Admiral Farragut Park, there is a woodsy little trail that is delightful to hike. In addition to providing picturesque views of the river, there are several access points to the water's edge. Large rock overlooks make a perfect stage for a picnic or to cast a line, while the sandy shoreline invites wading though the surf or letting your dog enjoy a swim. A variety of songbirds and waterfowl can be seen from the trail. The trailhead can be accessed from the parking lots at either park.
