Wild Turkey Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Henry Horton State Park’s longest trail, Wild Turkey Trail, makes a loop through a cedar–oak–hickory forest that is fast reclaiming former farmland. You will see old fence lines and woods roads. It's low hills divided by intermittent streambeds make for some vertical variation as the path passes beside limestone outcrops and sinkholes. The mix of old fields and young woods makes for good wildlife habitat, not only for wild turkeys but also for deer."

Enjoyed a rainy afternoon here on a Wednesday, had the whole greenway and trail to myself. Decent view of the Cumberland River from the overlook platform. The mowed sections of the walkways are easy to navigate, but we're very damp with the rain, you can tell that you're in bottomland. The trails are easy to navigate even without good markings on the intersections. Overall, very nice outing so close to town, I will plan to do the East loop another day.
I didn't even know this trail was in Nashville! We took our almost 8-year-old twins on this walk, and we all enjoyed it quite a bit. Flat, paved, and easy - we saw bikers and roller-bladers there, as well. We look forward to returning during cooler weather so we can see farther across the treed meadows.
