Tims Ford State Park, located on the Tims Ford Reservoir in the rolling hills of southern middle Tennessee, is an outstanding recreational area and fishing paradise. Long before the construction of Tims Ford Dam on the headwaters of the Elk River, the area was used extensively by the Indians as a hunting and fishing territory. Archaeological excavations uncovered numerous artifacts and occupational sites, indicating that man had occupied the area as much as 10,000 to 12,000 years ago. The 10,700-acre Tims Ford Lake is one of the most picturesque in Tennessee and is regarded as one of the top bass fishing and recreational lakes in the Southeast.

Enjoyed the hike. Great views. Lots of bridges.

Great hike. Between the view and the bridges it was a wonderful day in the wood.

Really feels like in deep woods. Jolene loved it!

Nice easy trail, not a lot of great views but the trail does wind down to the lake a few times. 2 suspension bridges - would be fun for older kiddos.

Very hot and humid day. No breeze. Very uncomfortable. Not much to look at either except the lake. There are too many good trails to bother with this one again.

Beautiful & has plenty of rest stops for someone in my shape.
