The Plantation Trail is a new trail that opened in August 2018.It follows the Little Obed River behind the Charleston Plantation Apartments and Townhomes. The trail can only be accessed from the paved trail in the Obed River Park. Enter the park from West Avenue.

Start at the 2nd parking lot on your left.  The paved trail starts at the left side of the parking lot.  Go past the yellow barrier with the “No motorized Vehicles” sign. Follow paved trail along Obed River for 1/2 mile to the old collapsed dam. Turn left off the paved trail on to the Plantation dirt trail.

The Plantation Trail goes 0.9 of a mile along the Little Obed River. The ends in a small loop and you then return along the trail to the paved path in the Obed River Park. Turn right on the paved path back to the parking lot.
