Short Loop is a 1.7 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Clarksville, TN and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is accessible year-round.
My husband and I are in our mid 40s. We did this little hike with our 3 year old and 7 year old grand kids. They both walked the whole way, including the 3 year old. There are a few tree roots on the path and small inclines. the trail is clearly marked and well maintained. It took us about 1 hour. We went in February after the heavy snow and it was beautiful. The park gates automatically close at sunset. There was a cave at the entrance/exit, but it was closed. The kids still had a good time playing in front of the cave. Not too busy, we saw 5 other people. Dogs are welcome, so our great dane had a blast. This is a good introductory hike.
