    Joel Howson reviewed Cucumber Gap and Little River Loop Trail

    23 days ago

    Little River section deceiving if you start there. The true hiking experience begins the 2nd half of the trip which is a good hike.

    4.1 miles using MotionX-GPS. Good out & back on a hardwood ridge that was part of a logging operation back in the day. A 6 ft. Rat Snake had parked itself perpendicular across the trail. Always nice to see interesting fauna along the way.

    Great trail along the Percy Priest reservoir. Cedar glades and hardwoods. Canopy keeps one cooler in hot weather. Some ignorant dog owners don't clean up their animal's mess which is disappointing given the park provides bags for that purpose.

    Great trail for a metropolitan area.

    The hiking trail is only about 1.2 miles. Their map shows a trail that would have completed the approx. 2.3+ mile hiking loop but it has not been maintained and is closed. Had to walk on asphalt back to the visitor center - very disappointing. The history of the land relative to the Civil War was very interesting and the interpretation signage, etc. is well done.

    The trail should be rated Moderate only because of all the limestone surfaces and inconsistent footing. If trail ratings are primarily dictated by elevation change then the trail is Easy. That said, proper footwear (don't wear sneakers/sandals, etc.) in the form of hiking boot/hiking shoots are highly recommended. If the hiker has bad knees, joints, etc., please strongly consider using trekking poles which will provide great assistance in many ways. Experienced hikers will experience a nice hike and we are impressed that such a nice trail exists in town. Overall, the park is great and the nature center does a great job in teaching natural history.

    Unless you wear GTX hiking boots/shoes avoid for 48/72 hours after a rain event. Purple trail blazes became blue and then non-existent. Some trail signs no longer erect. Not very scenic but good for burning some calories.
