"Lake, woods, and tree lovers will appreciate the new Couchville Lake Arboretum, which borders the trail.

Many short out-and-back paths lead to the lakes edge and several ponds that border the trail."

"Lake, woods, and tree lovers will appreciate the Couchville Lake Arboretum, which borders the trail. Wildlife lovers will like it too, as they may see deer and waterbirds here. A 300-foot wooden bridge crosses the lake and affords great photo ops. Many short out-and-back paths lead to the lake’s edge and several ponds that border the trail. This 2,800-acre park with more than 17 miles of trails, ranging from less than a mile to 6.0 miles, may offer hikers the best combination of hikes near Nashville. Pick up a trail map and interpretive brochure at the park headquarters and drive the short distance to the boathouse parking area. The hike starts at the Couchville Lake Trail trailhead adjacent to the boathouse. Hiking in the late afternoon affords the opportunity to see the sun set across the lake, an inspiring sight."

A nice walk. We hike this trail often because it's just a pleasant walk. With deer, turkey, geese, and herons all along the way, it is a wonderful way to relax and just get out of the madness for a while.
