Heritage Park/Thompson’s Station Park Hike

Heritage Park/Thompson’s Station Park Hike Professional Review and Guide

"This hike combines trails at two parks to make one good trek. Start at Heritage Park and wind your way up a wooded ridgeline; then descend to Thompson’s Station Park, where you will follow a gravel track around a more traditional developed park. Climb back over the ridge and join a different path that leads past an overlook, once a Civil War cannon emplacement during the battle of Thompson’s Station.

Interestingly, not only does this hike connect two parks, but it also connects two major watersheds. The two parks, Heritage Park and Thompson’s Station Park, are separated by a line of hills known as Duck River Ridge. To the south of the ridge, streams flow into the Duck River, part of the Tennessee River Basin, while streams north of Duck River Ridge flow north into the Harpeth River, a tributary of the Cumberland River Basin."
