The new bridge over the creek.

Please do not hike this trail on a Sunday morning as the parking lot will be full with the congregation’s cars.

Driving Directions Head out of Crossville along Sparta Highway, Route 70. After three quarters of a mile pass Ace Hardware on the right. Approximately a quarter of a mile after Ace turn right into the parking lot of the St Raphael Episcopal Church. Park behind the church close to the trailhead.

Enter the trail and enjoy an easy walk. This is a delightful figure-of-eight woodland trail that was constructed in 2017. It is a very peaceful location with a creek and pond to add some interest for hikers.
