Explore the Solitude of Bells Bend Park
Located west of Nashville, you'll find a quiet, rural preserve known for its agricultural history shaped by the Cumberland River.
Despite its close proximity to metro Nashville, there's never more than a smattering of visitors at Bells Bend Park at any given time. The pastoral landscape is comprised of rolling hills and creeks meandering through the preserve, and the 808-acre park includes over six miles of trail, including several old farm trails. There's minimal elevation gain, so this is the perfect spot to take a stroll amongst nature if you aren't seeking a challenging hike. You'll likely spot an abundance of wildlife, particularly birds like sparrows and wrens, plus turtles and the occasional snake. Your four-legged friend is allowed to join you in the park as long as they are on a leash!
