Tennessee is ripe with beautiful lakes, streams, rivers and natural areas perfect for a weekend hike, with perhaps some of the best lying half way between Nashville and Knoxville.
The area along Tennessee's Dekalb and Putnam County line is home to several state parks and recreation areas. With Edgar Evans State Park, Center Hill Lake, Falling Water and Caney Fork Rivers and Burgess Falls all within an easy drive of each other, outdoor enthusiasts have a plethora of choices for hiking, fishing and boating. If you drive about 20 minutes further east, you can get a beautiful view without ever getting off the interstate.
