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.

Great trail. 1.5 miles on paved section then 1.3 miles thru woods. I love the 2 swinging bridges.
Restrooms located at beginning of trail.
Fun hike with your dog.

We enjoyed the hike and the swinging bridges. Loved the view. Perfect with kids and dogs on leash. It was very cold but sunny today.

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.

Very nice hike with beautiful lake views, suspension bridges and enough up and down ravines for a workout. Missed one sharp turn on the trail and we weren't the only ones. If you miss the turn you will be on pavement. Backtrack a short distance and pick up the trail going right down a ravine. We combined this with the Marble trail for a very nice hike just under 4 miles total.

Easy hiking, fishing was slow, but many trees to set up a hammock and just relax:)

I liked the views of the lake. Wished it didn't get dark on me. Would like a shortcut trail along the way, bc once you commit to the long trail, that's it. Great job marking all the trails with pink ribbon, yellow hiking and orange arrow signs.
Thank you Winchester, Tn.

It's great for a family outing. I enjoyed this trail and seen a doe just off the trail. It's hardtop. It leads to the Ray branch trail. So get out there and enjoy it.
Thank you Winchester, Tn.
