If you’ve been following LtL for a while, you know my fond affections to hiking with my family. We used to hike quite frequently when we lived in the Pacific Northwest – one summer I actually set out a goal to hike 100 miles before we left Washington! While we didn’t rack up that many miles, we did our best and had a blast making the memories in the mean time. Since moving to Tennessee last year, I still wanted to make it a point to find kid friendly trails around Nashville and continue making those special memories with my family. Recently I found a kid friendly hike just south of us near Columbia that led to a beautiful waterfall!The Stillhouse Hollow Falls trail is about 1 mile each way and well maintained, making this hike easy enough for Brooks to manage…and momma to be (mostly) hands free. 😉 There’s just something about hiking with my B that brings me a different kind of joy that not many activities offer the same soulful feeling. It’s like nothing else matters for that time but he and I and the memories we’re making together.
Once we reached the falls I changed B into his bathing and a change of shoes so he could splash (& throw rocks) until his heart was content. With our PNW hiking experience I knew to bring a lunch and some water and make a day out of it. We really loved our day together and someone got a great nap for the car ride home. 😉 Hint: it wasn’t me unfortunately.
Below is a little video montage I put together from our time on the trail and at the falls. I hope you enjoy! If you know of any other kid friendly hikes and falls near Nashville, please share below!
Lemons to Love,
