Old Stone Fort - Nov 25, 2011


Old Stone Fort - Nov 25, 2011
by Anthony Jones
Old Stone Fort was the destination (again) for our annual day after Thanksgiving turkey walk off. We hiked about five fantastic miles and the waterfalls were overflowing due to the recent rains. The falls are generally beautiful anyway, but these were spectacular today.

Joan Hartvigsen from Highland Rim chapter of the Tennessee Trails was our fearless leader for this trip and she did an excellent job. The terrain was in great shape despite the rain, but a small portion of the moat trail was flooded so we had to double back a bit. Old Stone Fort is one of the most fascinating places in Middle Tennessee for its diverse history and the resources it provides to the visitors. The confluence of the "Big" Duck River and the "Little" Duck River is great to see especially after a little rain.
