  • I loved it because there was no fee! And great short trails to explore.
  • Neat Civil War fort site. A bunch of signs explaining the history of the place and where you are in the layout of the fort. The fort isn't there, but you can still see the earthwork outlines of it and the trenches, which is pretty cool.
  • I found this place by accident looking for a good place to exercise and ended up spending hours learning about the history of the fort.
  • I loves this place! It was so cool getting to walk through actual civil war trenches. It's not everyday you can dive back through history like this. Oh, and it's free.
  • Stumbled upon this great walking trail and piece of history the other day. Pretty peaceful place to take in some light exercise and a few good views.

Where to stay in Franklin

With its brick buildings and small-town charm, the downtown area remains Franklin's biggest draw, but accommodation options here are limited to just a couple inns and bed and breakfasts. You will, however, find many national-chain hotels in the commercial district around where Murfreesboro Road meets Interstate 65. As an alternative, consider staying on a working farm just outside the town center for a more rustic experience.
