Day Trip from Nashville to Montgomery Bell State Park, Tennessee

A pleasant day trip from Nashville to Montgomery Bell State Park in summer 2017 with my housemate and dear friend. The park is huge, and there’s lots to do. We first walked from the visitor center up to the lovely stone dam that the park is known for (pictured a few images below). It was a really hot day, and the trail mostly followed a nice cool stream, so we ended up taking our shoes off and walking in the creek for most of the way.

Then we took a short drive to another section of the park where they have lovely swimming and row-boat area designated on the lake. It wasn’t a huge swimming area (see the roped off section two images down), but the water felt great, and it was fun to see people from the area out with their kids getting some sun and enjoying the state parks.
