Devil's Backbone Loop

Devil's Backbone Loop Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This hike traverses one of Tennessee’s newer designated state natural areas. Conveniently located adjacent to the Natchez Trace Parkway, this preserve makes a loop through a seldomtraveled hardwood forest. The path stays in the center of the preserve, exuding an aura of wildness that makes even wintertime views of surrounding hills seem in the back of beyond."
