Your Dog's Favorite Hikes In Tennessee

Submitted by Bobbie and Bear
When we are in the South Fork Recreation Area we always like to take the Angel Falls Overlook Trail. You follow the John Muir National Trail across and down the Cumberland River. The wide dirt trail is easy walking under the tall trees. At the 1.5-mile mark the trail goes up in switchbacks to high bluffs overlooking the river. There is a little stretch of rock climbing so you may have to lift your dog if he isn't used to jumping on rocks.

Just wanted to drop you a line to tell you about another Tennessee park that allows dogs (on a leash). Frozen Head State Park (see link above). Great hiking, beautiful wild flowers and not very crowded. Love your website.
