TNP at Murfreesboro Parks Chapter

< Back to the Event List

The inaugural core TNP course held at our newest chapter, Murfreesboro Parks Chapter at Barfield Crescent Park, will begin on September 2nd, 2021. The 275-acre natural area has approximately 5 miles of hiking trails and 9 miles of mountain bike trails. Beginning from the Wilderness Station, the paved path cuts through a hardwood forest that rises above limestone outcrops. This eventually leads to the River Overlook and backcountry campground. Here the trail turns into a dirt path that skirts along the West Fork of the Stones River. Climbing higher towards the peak, there are limestone sinks and a long stone fence that is thought to be Civil War-era. The natural area here is a beautiful example of the Oak/Hickory forest and Karst topography that is so prevalent in Middle Tennessee.

We're sorry, but all ticket sales have ended.
