Beaman Park - 6.6 Mile Moderate Hike in Beautiful Joelton 6/28

Join us at Beaman Park for a hike along the quiet and uncrowded trails of this wooded 1500 acre park.

HIKE STATS:
Meeting Time:  8:00 AM Meeting Place: Beaman Park Nature Center
Hike Distance: 6.6 total miles
Estimated Hike Time: 3 hours
Difficulty: Moderate
Hiking Leader Lisa W.
Notes: Dogs on a leash welcomed

We will start promptly at 8:00 a.m., meeting in front of the Nature Center and trailhead located on Old Hickory Blvd between Clarksville Hwy and Ashland City Hwy.

We will go downhill on the Sedge Hill Trail, across the creek to the Henry Hollow Loop headed north along the Creekside Trail. Continue uphill to the Ridgetop Trail which is 2.1 miles there and 2.1 miles back returning to the short side of Henry Hollow Loop, across the creek again and uphill to the Nature Center for a total of 6.6 miles.

These trails are rated moderate and the hike should be easily completed in less than 3 hours. Looking to make a brisk pace on this hike.

Leashed dogs welcomed.

Wear appropriate footwear, bring a snack, and plenty of water. 

Directions:
If this is your first time to Beaman, it's better to map the Lewis Country Store at 5106 Old Hickory Blvd, Nashville, TN 37218 (corner of Old Hickory Blvd. and Ashland City Hwy - Hwy 12). From there, head north on Old Hickory (sort of behind the store), wave out the window to Sulphur Creek Farm on your right as you pass, and after traveling about 4 miles you'll see the entrance to the Nature Center on your left.

    I actually got some bad directions down at Shell station and ended up at Bells Bend first so I was late. Good hike and good shower though.
