Perimeter trails are often not the most scenic or rewarding because you're basically hiking the outer boundaries of the park (w/ occasional views of nearby houses, roads, power lines, etc). Bowie is one of the nicest and most unspoiled parks in middle Tennessee. The park's perimeter trail, although really nice, is my least favorite, but there are so many adjoining "interior" trails that you can incorporate them into the perimeter route for a much more scenic tour.

This is an easy trail for beginners or families. Trail is wide and not a lot of cross trails. Only trail markings are at the beginning and the few cross trails. Nice quiet area that has a few houses and farms around it.

This is an easy hike for the entire family ( & fur babies). This is a good trail for running and an afternoon stroll with the family. I wouldn't rate this as moderate but a good weekend trail to visit with others.
