This place was BEAUTIFUL! We visited on our way through Tennessee as a stop to stretch our legs and let the kiddos play. It was perfect the walk down to the river bridge trail is only 1 mile long and the nature play scape was Awesome! Our children are 15 months and 5 years. They loved our nature adventure! We visited in January and it was beautiful I imagine it gets even better in the spring and summer!
We spent an hour here after about 9 hours in the car. It was perfect and just what we needed!
Friendly staff lots of learning opportunities and tons of Fun!

Great place to wander and stretch your legs. The quarry is beautiful and so is the trail along the river. A hidden gem!!
