The museum includes exhibits that orientate the visitor to the Old Stone Fort and its setting, the hilltop enclosure mound sites broader significance and the culture of its builders. The 876-acre park also offers a variety of activities including fishing, camping and hiking. Old Stone Fort Golf Course is the only 9-hole course in the Tennessee Golf Trail. The course lies along the pastoral Duck River with mature trees encompassing each hole.

Great views of waterfalls. Clearly marked and well maintained especially if you do the trail clockwise.

Loved this trail! Have to do a few deep scrambles to get down to the water for good waterfall views. Well marked, and well maintained. I would rate the climb and descent from Backbone Ridge trail (the lower right as seen on this trail map) as moderate though, it's pretty steep both up and back down.

The trail was easy and pleasant. We were caught in the middle of a rain storm during the hike, but still enjoyed it. Water does to pool pretty deep in several areas of the cleared trail, but we sort of stuck to the sides of the trail to keep from soaking our socks. Overall a great hike and lovely falls!

First trail in Tennessee. It was pretty easy for me, but there are a few places that could cause concern on footing. Went after a rain, so some slippery places. water falls are beautiful, the ruins are in good shape and a lot of history.

Great trails and very close to our home. Waterfalls are fun. Our male dog Tristan enjoyed his time during our visit in 2014
