Most of the trail is in the woods on natural turf. We will sometimes see Bald Eagles. Dogs are welcome if on a leash. The Battle of Fort Donelson, February 11-16, was the first major Union victory in the Civil War. Nashville would fall to Union troops in a matter of days. The Cumberland River and Tennessee River became integral parts of the Union supply lines. Our goal is to finish the hike and be in place to see cannons firing and possibly speak with reenactment troops.
Sign-in at 7:45 at the Dover Crossing Kroger. We will depart at 8:00 CT and drive 30 miles to the trailhead. Contact Hike Leader: Philip Anderson 931-561-0925
