Unwind and Enjoy a few Moments at Sharp Springs Natural Area — Trapper Sherwood

Enjoy Nature at Beautiful Sharp Springs

The other day I found myself in between jobs and just cruising around Smyrna TN. I had a little bit of time to kill and I had my Rebel T3 with me and it had been awhile since I snapped any photos.

As I came towards the intersection at Gilsville, it hit me where I wanted to go; Sharp Springs! I had heard about it, seen it as I drove up & down Jefferson Pike, but I had not stopped in. So I pulled in & found a place to park.

Man was I glad I did!

Am I the only one around here that didn’t know about this little spot of heaven here in Smyrna??

Grabbing my camera I hit the generous and paved walking trails.  This place has it all.

First thing I came across in the direction I was walking was a small pond. To say was a bit swollen from all the rain we have been having, would be a bit of an understatement.
But beautiful just the same. (Do bring some mosquito repellent… trust me on this one.)

As I continued my hike on the trail, I think I walked over a mile, the natural areas just kept blowing me away!

From all the fields planted with what I assume is soy bean, to the numerous ponds which seem to be hiding around ever corner of walking trails I turned. The views are spectacular to say the least, and there was lots of cloud cover due to more storms rolling in.

Need a break… they have plenty of “rest stops” with benches along the way.



Want to play a little “Disc Golf?” Which is one of the activities this park is know for, you can. I admit, I know very little about disc golf, but it looks like a nice course to me.
For more info on the disc golf, I found their facebook page.

As I finished my walk, I came across a bunch of shelters that I guess folks are using for cook outs, family gatherings, or just a spot to come hang out and enjoy the peace and quiet and nature. One girl was sitting playing her guitar, she gets it.

Anyways, finding this gem that has been hiding in plain site all along really made my day.

Take a few minutes and check it out in the near future. I haven’t even scratched the surface about what’s there, but I will uncover more and let you know.

Sharp Springs is located at 1000 Espey Dr, Smyrna, TN. 37167
