This flat, winding trail connects the Couchville Lake area to Bryant Grove Recreation Area as it follows the shore of Percy Priest Lake. The path visits several unique habitats, including rare limestone glades.
It crosses a wooden bridge above Bryant Grove Creek, where Green Herons are occasionally seen wading and feeding. The one-mile marker (coming from Couchville Lake) is a good "habitat edge" birding spot for warblers, vireos and other species. Wildflowers along the route include Spider Lily, Shooting Star, Glade Phlox, Rose Verbena, Evening Primrose, Tennessee Milkvetch, and Prickly Pear cactus. Keep an eye out for owls, hawks and raccoons along the trail.
