Saturday, August 12 —Old Stone Fort State Archaeological Park, Manchester TN, 7.85 miles, moderate. We will hike all the trails in the park! These trails are heavily shaded and we will have opportunities to cool off in the Duck and Little Duck Rivers. We will begin along the Duck River, where we will see Bluehole Falls as well as 30-foot high Big Falls. We will continue with the Backbone Trail and the Forks of the River Trail to the confluence of the Duck and Little Duck Rivers, then on to the Moat Trail and along the Little Duck River to Step Falls, which has a series of tiered waterfalls cascading down into the Little Duck River. We will also hike the park’s newest trails, the Chumbley Woods Trail and the Eagle Trail, which features ridge lines and the Little Duck River in a beautiful hardwood forest. Finally we will go down Garrison Road and Nature Trails, which feature the Arboretum, funded by a TTA Evan Means Grant. Bring water, lunch, hiking sticks and wear sturdy hiking boots.
