“Easy, wide-open trail with views of the Tennessee River and Blackwell Swamp.”— Luke Brisk
This is an easy doubletrack trail that runs around Blackwell Swamp. It is a perfect for the novice trail runner because it is flat and not connected to any other trails, so you won't get lost. Also, because it's an old road with minimal rocks or roots, no technical skills are required.
It heads east giving your a nice view of the Tennessee River for the first mile. After that, make your way north while the trail periodically zigs west before zagging north for the next 3.5 miles where you zig one last time before heading south towards Jolley B Road. Here the trail gradually heads downward so you can finish this section strong.
From here, continue down Jolley B Road until you reach the point at which you began this run.
Simple, easy, flat, and fast.
