It was late morning, the air was still fresh and cool and I decided to take a walk through nature. Where? Closer than you may think…
In addition to being historically significant to the Trail of Tears, the park is now a regular destination for mountain bike and fishing enthusiasts. The area is spread between Knob Creek and the Duck River, making it a great place for pets to exercise during the summer.
Soon I ran into Dr. John White of The Pointing Dog Social Club where he was casually taking his daily stroll. “I actually found this place by accident,” he said. “I really wish more people knew the beauty of the outdoors, especially since it’s here in our own back yard.”
Its rolling hills and closed meadows give the scenery a divers atmosphere that I always leave wanting more, making every trip back even more special than the last.
The park is open from 8am to 9pm right off of Highway 7 toward Santa Fe. For any additional information contact the park phone at (931) 375-6101.
