Old Stone Fort State Archaeological Park
March 30, 2022 @ 8:30 am
Wednesday, March 30. 3 miles. Old Stone Fort State Archaeological Park, Manchester, TN. Moderate. Uneven difficult footing in places. We will hike the Old Stone Fort Trail and possibly the somewhat steep Backbone trail. Hopefully, we will see some early wildflowers. The Old Stone Fort is a 2,000 year old American Indian ceremonial site. The two forks of the Duck River cut into the edge of the Highland Rim Plateau at the site of the Old Stone Fort. On the hike, we will see waterfalls, cascades and rock bluffs bordering the Duck River. You will need hiking poles, hiking shoes, desired snacks and water. We will eat lunch after the hike at a local restaurant. Those carpooling, meet at 8:30 am CST at the Kroger, Glenbrook Shopping Center, 1010 Glenbrook Way, Hendersonvile. Please call or text Judy Jenkins if you plan to meet at the trailhead by the museum at 10:00 am CST or for more information at 615-403-0002.
