This TVA area is special because of the unusual cedar barren habitat which is more common in middle Tennessee. A cedar barren is an open area surrounded by plants that prefer thin, shallow soils around limestone outcroppings like eastern red cedar, blazing star, prairie dock and big bluestem. Other features of this trail include an old cemetery (1800’s), a pond, and a recently built pier that extends out into a wetland, offering an excellent opportunity to see some of the 125 bird species that have been observed here. An easy trail for young ones to navigate but be prepared to get muddy as trail holds water.
Amenities: parking, hiking.
