Life is simple... Eat, Sleep, Hike!

Friday, May 19, 2017
Summer is fast approaching  here in East Tennessee everyday is a great time for hiking or to be outdoor. We recently moved to Oak Ridge, TN a small town on the valley. Close to the lakes and different level of hiking trails. We discovered this trail right across the street from where we live. Isn't it so awesome how convenient it is to just pack and go. The hike is easy perfect for the whole family , gravel path and not crowded.

We hike about 2 miles there and back. Then you'll see a man-made hole filled with rain water with fish and surrounded by trees. If you are looking for something that is more quiet and out of the way this trail is for you. Very beautiful scenery and fun to hike occasionally you'll see deer, wild turkey and other wildlife. A must go for everyone new and experienced next time when your near Oak Ridge hit it up!

If you like the outdoors, fresh air and fantastic views, this is the place for you.

Relaxing place to enjoy the scenery & wildlife.

  1. We always like visiting East Tennessee. We have not gotten to visit as much as we would like to have since the birth of our triplets. It is on our list of places to visit again, soon!

  7. Our family really enjoys hiking. There's just nothing that works better for resetting our moods and getting our priorities straight than spending time in the mountains! It looks like the hikes in Tennessee are gorgeous, too!

  8. What lovely photos! I've never been to Tennessee, and it looks lovely. Our family too loves to go on for hikes. We have a few different nature trails that we love to take our dogs on. There's no better way to spend an afternoon

  9. What a great place to just go and relax and reset. We are lucky here in Colorado too - always a place that is quiet and perfect for some hiking and resetting. We love doing family hikes

  11. This looks like such a peaceful place to walk and contemplate whatever's on your mind. I like nature walks as long as I know there are no snakes. I know that's almost not possible, right?
