Promoting the development and enjoyment of Tennessee trails.
“Pick a Park” series. Henry Horton State Park. Adeline Wilhoite River Trail. 1.35 Miles out-and-back rated easy. The trail follows the ecologically important Duck River, ending at a 20-foot observation tower overlooking a native grass field and wetland. The river trail also connects with the Wilhoite Mill Trail, a 0.70 Mile loop. The trail begins near the site that early settlers in the late 1700’s made the first known crossing of the Duck River, and winds its way through cedar glades, hardwood forests, old farm fields and remnants of abandoned farm homes. Meet at the Visitors’ Center at 10:00 am CT with all the usual essentials. Even at my leisurely pace, we will have time to explore the displays at the Visitors’ Center, and back home in time to fire up the grill. An easy start to Labor Day Weekend!
