If exploration is what you want, it takes only a short drive to discover a variety of things to do. At the South Cumberland State Park, you can learn where established trails are located and partake in a short relaxing hike on your own or on an all day, ranger guided hike. For the more adventurous souls, repel down the Stone Door Bluff or go rock climbing at Foster Falls.
Scenic drives will take you to water falls, spelunking, antiqueing and craft shopping, museums and much more. If fishing and boating are what you want, Tims Ford Lake State Park is close by with fishing guides and boat rentals available.
