A great area to spend a few days. Just minutes away to hike the Devil’s Backbone, canoe the Buffalo River, go horseback riding or golfing. Visit Fall Hollow Falls, Meriwether Lewis’ (Lewis & Clark Expeditions) grave site, Dutchtown Alpaca Farm, Memory Junction Antiques, Amish farms, wineries, and historic Hohenwald. Or you can just relax, wade in clear water Big Swan Creek, walk through the woods, and birdwatch on thirty private acres. At the end of the day, kick back and roast hot dogs and marshmallows by a campfire.
