    This is the closest trail to Franklin TN. Trail is in bad shape from neglect, but weather will be good. We're going to do a slow ride through and take notes on what needs to be fixed and then spend some time working. Please join us every Saturday at 8!

    We got about a mile of trail back in shape. Four more to go. We'll be working and riding a different section every Saturday morning until the end of November. Any and all experience in building/maintaining a trail would be much appreciated.

    Came out this Saturday with Bill and a few others to do some work on this trail and do a little riding. There is probably 3 (maybe a little more) miles of ready to ride trail at this point and it's a nice trail. Probably another 2-3 miles of trail to clear. The sections that have been initially cleared need to be ridden and worked in. We met with the land owner and he is very happy to have the trail being brought back into usable condition and glad to see people out riding it.

    Trail is coming along nicely we've got one more section to clear to finish up the main figure eight. The trail needs to be marked to define the direction etc. And we plan on having that done in the next few weeks.

    BIG thank you to Jim and everyone else who has come out to work. This trail system is only 15 minutes from downtown Franklin. It's a special trail and is getting better each week!

    I am not familiar with this trail. I live in La Vergne. Is it worth checking out? Where is it? Does anyone have a map?
    I'll huff, and I'll puff, then I'll bomb down the hill!

    Last time I rode Higher Ground was last Nov. It was around 5mi with some fairly interesting features. The trail is located at the Deer Run camp in Thompson Station, off Perkins Rd (3845 Perkins Road, Thompson Station, TN 37179). I really doubt there is an up to date map floating around (please, someone correct me, if I am wrong).
