Old Mill Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Old Mill Trail traverses the most historic parcel of Henry Horton State Park. The path loops along the scenic Duck River through an area that was once the thriving hamlet of Wilhoites Mill. Experience first-hand the fading of history, as second-growth woods slowly camouflage the remains of a community that thrived in the 1800s.

The Old Mill hike is a walk into history, heading through a community once known as Wilhoites Mill. Leave the parking lot and walk toward the bridge, descending on a path of wood chips. Immediately to your left is a large iron wheel, which was turned by a long belt, connected to turbines located on the river."

This is a great trail. It is somewhat easy and good for kids. Don't go into this hike with too lofty of expectations of seeing a stone fort, you won't. However, you will see some beautiful greenery, a stunning view of the river forks, and one of the better falls in middle Tennessee. The main trail is short, but there are several optional trails as well. Be careful with small children on the optional trails as they have steep drops down the sides. With proper caution, there shouldn't be any issues.
