Wooded trail by a small lake fed by a stream in a cave. Moderate hike. From I-24 Exit 4 go south on hwy 79 about 4 miles. Turn left on Dunbar Cave Rd. go 1.1 miles the park is on your left. Great place to see wildlife: deep, turkey, fox, squirell, muskrat, turtles, and all kinds of birds, from swans to woodpeckers. You can also tour the cave with a ranger.
A good trail. The cave isn't extensive, but it's still cool. Not exactly a place to get away from the world
My personal favorite trail in Clarksville. While it is often times busy and the gates close at sundown, it is possibly the best trail to run on that's somewhat challenging around here. There are two loops both of which connect in the middle. They are not paved and not made for bikes. The short loop is easy and less than a mile long. The recovery loop is about a mile and a half and has much higher incline with no switch backs. The cave is not always open, but offers a cool area to rest after your run.
it was an okay trail.. not really a lot to see.. would love to go inside the cave,but it was all gated up..
short trail, shaded, medium populated
Nice to be in nature in the city! Deer on trail.
My favorite place to hike when I'm in my home town!
Cool history and a shady walk.
