Moving To The Big South Fork, Tennessee: So Many Trails, So Little Time

Real Estate Agent with Tennessee Recreational Properties

Big South Fork National Park: Trailhead SignIf you're thinking of moving to the Big South Fork, here in Jamestown, Tennessee, and you've already bought a piece of land and had it cleared, built a house and a barn, gotten your fencing up and horses squared away and have made some new friends to ride with, the only issue you have now is that there are "so many trails; so little time."

There are a number of trailheads in the Big South Fork national park, where you park your trailer and ride out from there. People generally make plans to ride in different locations, and they will meet at one of these trailheads. It's usually a graveled area, designated for this purpose, with plenty of room to turn your rig around. There are usually hitching rails and there may even be a mounting block.

Big South Fork National Park; Parking At Trailhead

Trails are very well marked and maintained by the National Park service. They vary in degree of difficulty and you can plan a route that accommodates your skill level and style of riding. Most riders carry the waterproof map of Big South Fork that has the trailheads and trails defined, and many riders also carry a GPS.

Because the Big South Fork national park straddles the Tennessee/Kentucky border, you'll find Big South Fork trails in both states. I recommend that you purchase Russ Manning's book, 100 Trails of The Big South Fork: Tennessee and Kentucky. It will tell you how to get there and what to expect when you do(Don't leave home without it!).

Well, you've helped me understand better why some of my horsey friends from around here like to come down there to ride the trails.  That's some pretty stuff.
