From the Back Cover
The Hidden Springs Trail at Cedars of Lebanon State Park epitomizes the hiking opportunities in the Central Basin. Here, you'll experience an environment unlike any other in the United States: deep sinks, caves, disappearing streams, rock gardens, Middle Tennessee's unique cedar glades. On the Highland Rim, there's the Montgomery Bell Trail, which visits impressive hardwood forests, scenic lakes, and numerous sites of historical interest. On the Cumberland Plateau, there's the challenging Fiery Gizzard Trail, which travels a wild gorge among waterfalls, cascading mountain streams, and pinnacles. Middle Tennessee on Foot also includes a section of walks on country roads, intended for people who love to walk but who aren't hikers_those who like to stay on pavement.
Written for both the merely curious and serious hikers, this book contains a wealth of information about Middle Tennessee's topography, forests, wildlife, and history. Its hike descriptions offer lively reading even for those who never set foot on a trail or a country road.
