Kid Friendly Trails Near Nashville

Kid Friendly Trails Near Nashville

If you’ve been following LtL for a while, you know my fond affections to hiking with my family. I’ve put in the time to find some of the best kid friendly trails near Nashville. 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 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 family 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!

Moms Who Brunch: Loveless Cafe

Moms Who Brunch: Loveless Cafe

Last Friday I stepped outside my comfort zone and into a place of friendly faces and good food. With my experience of moving and starting over, I’ve learned that the only way to build a community is by being open, open, open! Be open to opportunities, new people, new conversations, and even the slight change to being let down. That’s why when I was asked by a local blogger mom if I wanted to meet for brunch at Loveless Cafe I said yes without hesitation. Continue reading “Moms Who Brunch: Loveless Cafe”

Fall Creek Falls State Park

Fall Creek Falls State Park

Every so often I’ll catch a spontaneous ‘bug’ and want to go off somewhere with B like we used to do in the PNW. I loved our time away together and the memories we’d create. When I can I’ll do some research and find a kid-friendly destination within a two hour driving radius. Instagram is usually my go-to when searching for local fun spots. If you just search through some hashtags and adventuring photographer’s feeds you’re bound to stumble across a number of interests! When it comes to hiking, I’ll usually take the next step in my research reconnaissance and google the trail or park and see what other hikers are saying about the conditions of the trails, difficulty, and whether or not it’s kid friendly. Our most recent kid friendly hike was to the Fall Creak Falls State Park in the upper Cane Creek Gorge. Continue reading “Fall Creek Falls State Park”
