Hike #6 of 52 – Lower Loop Trail – Harpeth River State Park, TN

IMG_5432.jpg

Leaving the Narrows of the Harpeth Tract of Harpeth River State Park, I then drove a short distance to the third tract making up the state park – Gossett Tract.  Despite several hours of daylight remaining, the only other hiker in sight was an older man with two monstrously-sized dogs.  He and his dogs headed down the path towards the shorter Upper Loop Trail, while I headed the opposite way to the mile-long Lower Loop Trail instead.

I hate to say this about any trail, but quite frankly, I was bored.  Lower Loop Trail turned out to be basically just a mowed path circling an average looking field.  Really the only moment of excitement or thrill was when a turkey flew up out of the tall grass to my left and nearly scared the crap out of me!  I don’t recommend this particular trail unless you live in the area and want something mind-numbing to do outside.  Even then, however, there are much more stimulating trails less than 5 minutes away.
