“A portion of trail that spans the width of Land Between the Lakes, connecting Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley.”— Joshua Hutchens
The Meredith Trailhead is not visible from Highway 68/80. You must turn on a narrow gravel drive. After driving about 50 yards, you'll arrive at a gravel parking lot. From the parking lot, follow the trail into the woods a short distance before choosing to go west toward the Golden Pond Visitor Center or east toward the Sunset Trailhead.
A clearing for power lines marks the halfway point on this portion of the trail.
About 0.25 miles from the Sunset Trailhead is a historical memorial to the former town of Golden Pond, which was dissolved when the Tennessee Valley Authority created Land Between the Lakes.
Many people set out on this trail and run a portion of it before retracing their steps and returning to their vehicle.
