Stones River National Battlefield Loop Professional Review and Guide
"This loop hike traverses many of the interesting sites at Stones River National Battlefield. See earthworks, cannon emplacements, memorials, and cemeteries interspersed into an attractive environment of woods, cedar glades, and fields. Though the path is called the Five Mile Trail, it is only 3.6 miles long. Combine this hike with a trip to the battlefield visitor center and a short auto tour to familiarize yourself with an important chapter of Middle Tennessee history."
--Johnny Molloy, 60 Hikes within 60 Miles: Nashville - 4th Edition (Menasha Ridge Press).
Interesting trail. Probably better suited for biking than hiking, but not bad. "Moderate" rating is a stretch. The elevation changes are gradual. The only thing that bumps it up from "easy" is the ruggedness due to rocks and roots. Fun trail and close to Nashville.
The Pinnacle trail is well situated from Nashville and offered a lot of roaming. Be sure to start off on the right path from the trailhead. The trail resembles the board game Candy Land. Fun hike and easy to get turned around.
