Trail begins behind restrooms. This is a good hike to do with young kids. Short enough to keep them interested and long enough to give them a good workout. Great for introduction to hiking. Short little loop hike that begins behind the bathrooms at the Garrison Creek Trail off of the Natchez Trace in Franklin. This is a pretty easy hike that almost anyone could do. The climbs are not that steep or long. The trail is always easily located, wide and with limited to no obstacles.Show more

A great workout with the constant elevation changes. There are lots of connector trails that cross over Randy Ridge and connect to the opposite slope, so watch your route to stay on course. Offline map is highly recommended!Show more
