|Long Hunter State Park, Mt. Juliet, TN. – 5.5 miles – One Way – Moderate – |
The longest trail at Long Hunter follows the shore of Percy Priest Lake for most of its run and leads to a pair of primitive backcountry camping sites. Various species of shorebirds, ducks and geese are heard and seen frequently along this route. Though most of Long Hunter’s trails are relatively flat, this trail has a slight increase in elevation as it leaves the shore and climbs up the bluffs overlooking the lake. Rocky jumbles, mossy hillsides, scenic lake views, majestic trees and abundant spring wildflowers are common sights along the trail. This area is home to red fox, bobcat and deer. We will hike this trail in and out so prepare for an 11 mile moderate hike. Bring lunch, snacks, water, and dress appropriately for the weather.
