This blog catalogs the hiking adventures of Nate, Amy and their dogs Ezra and Coltrane. The blog started when Amy, a novice hiker, began dating veteran outdoorsman, Nate. Now married, we’re continuing to explore the local (and not-so-local) trails that Tennessee has to offer.
Along for the hike are Ezra, our 100 lb Great American Mutt, and Coltrane our 50 lb Aussie mix. Ezra’s epic breakdown on a suspension bridge gave us a new perspective on how some trails are dog friendlier than others and is part of the inspiration for this blog.
Our dog friendly trail rating system is designed to give a more rounded perspective on the great trail guides that are already out there.
Since our focus is local trails, our guidebook of choice is the 3rd Edition of 60 Hikes Within 60 Miles of Nashville by Johnny Molloy. We’re also keeping a running list of all of the territories we’ve marked.
