Couchville Lake Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This easy trail circles Couchville Lake, which lies adjacent to Percy Priest Lake at Long Hunter State Park. The popular paved path winds through woods and has many side trails leading to small piers on the lake’s edge. Tree and plant-identification signs enhance the experience. And a 300-foot bridge that spans the lake offers panoramic views. You may also see wildlife on the lake and in the woods on quiet mornings."

I have done this trail a few times. This particular trail is an easy paved walk, but the great thing about this park is that there are several trails that intersect. If I take my kids, we do the loop trail. If you want to take a longer route, you can tack on the two one mile loop trails and get a good 4.5 mile hike. The non-paved trails are rocky and hilly with beautiful scenery. This is my favorite local hike.
Great day hike for kids. A short loop that is paved takes you to a river bed where there is lots to see. Trail is well kept and information on local flora is neat for the kids.
Great trail just a stones throw from Murfreesboro. There's rarely any traffic on the trail, a lovely river to hike along, and a nice variety of hilly/rocky with sandy flat spots. Good for walking, running, or combination.
