This is a great hike for Civil War buffs. Walk the fields where the historic Battle of Franklin was fought on November 30, 1864, and follow Saw Mill Creek, which harbors a beaver lodge. The trail leads past Carnton Plantation, which was used as a Confederate field hospital and later gained fame in the novel Widow of the South.
