Bledsoe Creek State Park is a 164-acre site located on the Bledsoe Creek embayment of the Old Hickory Reservoir near the old 1780s settlement of Cairo.
Not a very long trail but the views were beautiful. One super steep hill. Trail around the water was beautiful but it's a busy lake (I don't mind watching the boaters) My son fished and caught one on his second cast. All in all an enjoyable day, we will be back!
Several trails located in this area for those looking for easy to moderate. Great views and some other historical sites in the area. small campground in case you want to pair camping with hiking. Also has public boat ramp. I saw several kayaking. we enjoy going here a few times a year.
Hiked this with my daughter and a friend and his kids on January 1st as part of the TN State Parks 'First Day Hike'. It was a guided hike along with about 50 - 60 other folks. It was a crisp and cool day but beautiful day for a hike. The trail was pretty easy with some rolling hills. The shoreline part of the trail had beautiful photo opportunities. Enjoyed the trail and will likely come back for a weekend in warmer weather to take advantage of the campsites.
Don't expect to see a lot of blazes along the trail; I saw a small handful the entire loop. If you keep an eye out, the trail is clear, even with leaves everywhere. The park's HQ is right at the beginning, so you have access to a bathroom.
Don't expect NP-style busy, but I saw about ten others out hiking on a beautiful Sunday.
