This will be an out and back. We will hike and explore a little history and more! We begin at the Heritage Park Trailhead and proceed to an elevated board walk over a marsh. Plenty of water life and some innovative Bat houses. The hike will continue on a soft trail with Nickajack Creek with us for the entire trail. Then we connect with the Silver Comet Trail ... hike to Floyd road and back. Once we get back to Heritage trail, there will be visits to the old Mills and stops at the creek falls. Only two short climbs on this hike... all reasonable flat trail. There are bathroom facilities on all ends of the trails.
