Fly fishing, spin casting, kayaking, canoeing, hiking and more are part of the natural life at Harpeth River State Park in Middle Tennessee. A unique linear park located along the Harpeth River, this beauty lover’s spot is ideal for activities or relaxing. Beginner and advanced paddlers can float this beautiful Class II river. And, the river hosts large and smallmouth bass, bream, crappie, bluegill, channel catfish and other game fish.

For your hiking and wildlife viewing pleasure, enjoy the solitude and tranquility of several miles of easy to difficult trails meandering through wildflower meadows, lush forests, and along majestic bluffs. At the Narrows of the Harpeth, three trails originate at a common trailhead near the park entrance. A two-mile bluff overlook trail includes a steep ascent to a narrow bluff offering hikers a panoramic view of the Harpeth Valley. Picnic tables and grills are available at Newsom’s Mill historic site, the Harris Street Bridge access area, and the Gossett tract.
