This trail extends off the Volunteer Trail at Long Hunter State Park near Nashville, TN. From about the midway point on the Volunteer loop the trail leaves the loop to follow the shore of Percy Priest lake to two campsites. A nice hike with a destination for lunch or a close to home overnight.Show more

A quick double-balloon loop on the outskirts of Belleview, with a small lake as the payoff. Starts out in an open field, winds it's way into the woods along a creek. Once into the woods, take the left fork in the trail (there's a sign) to get where you can actually touch the water (most of the lake is surrounded by high limestone bluffs). After dipping your toes in, there's a quick steep scramble up to cliffs with excellent views of the water below. At the far end of the lake, almost exactly halfway through the hike, there is a bench that overlooks the whole thing--very nice. After that, the trail branches off--the far left will give you the most distance, but the right trail will go up a bit higher and has better scenery. You'll eventually get back to the trail junction and retrace your original steps back to the open field. The 'bluebird loop' is just a different walk around the same field, but gets you back to the parking area.Show more
