Hiking Nashville Vanderbilt

Adventure Hike & Splash

Window Cliffs State Natural Area, TN

Date: Sunday, June. 17
Cost: $21/$23
Registration Deadline: Friday, June. 8

Pre-Trip Meeting: Tuesday, June 12 at 6:15 pm at the ORC

Windows Cliffs State Natural Area recently opened in March of 2017. We named the trip as a result of the hike. We will be crossing Cane Creek 9 times on the way in and again on the way back out. The creek can be anywhere from ankle to thigh deep. The total hike is 5.5 miles, but it is rated strenuous due to the stream crossings and elevation changes. Mid-June sounds like a good time of year to visit this scenic place. Join us on this new Adventure Hike!

Estimated trip duration: 8 am - 6 pm.

Hike & Splash
Piney River Trail, State Natural Area, TN

Date: Saturday, July 14
Cost: $37/$41
Registration Deadline: Friday, July 6

The Piney River Trail is located around 3 hours east of Nashville. The 10-mile easy-moderate trail follows alongside the beautiful Piney River and Duskin Creek. There are many chances to play in the water (the biggest spot is near a long bridge crossing), and some of the small waterfalls. If there is time, there is also a short hike to an overlook.

Estimated trip duration: 7 am - 10 pm.
