I like the trails on the Sawmill side at Circle E Guest Ranch & Trail Ride at Belvidere, TN (near Winchester). I am a fairly new rider and I like these trails. Be SURE to get you a map at their office as it is pretty good. We have not been lost yet. The new side has a lot of rock which I do not care for.
There is a easy trail at Riverbend Equesterian Center in Fayetteville, TN. It is not a long trail, but is easy and shady. I will try to find phone #. My neighbor rides there every week so will get you more info.

Laurel Hill WMA is also a good place, Linda Grajewski can tell you more about it. I have only ridden it once, but they have a new trail just opened and I am going to go with her again soon. There is also Many Cedars (off the Natchez Trace and not far from Laurel Hill), Why Not Ranch off of HWY 50 in Duck River is great, but sadly, is closing on October 1, so better go there quick!

Rails To Trails in Veto, Alabama is a very easy trail, good place for an out-of-shape horse to start. It is flat so no hill work. You can ride 10 miles one way (or turn around anytime if you don't want to do the whole 20 miles round trip). It is probably an hour or so drive from Columbia. You will ride through or into town (Elkmont) 5 miles in. Great place for riding in the heat of the day as the trees shade the trail and there is usually a nice breeze!

Bowie nature park trails are very easy. (in Fairview)

I agree, Rose. Fountain Creek is a good one. You can wade your horse into Fountain Creek and the Duck.

Hey Rose, they were probably talking about The Duck River Wildlife Management Area(aka. Fountain Creek, Yanahli). It is off Hwy 50 between Columbia and Lewisburg, about 5 or so miles from Hwy 31. It is hard to see if you don't know where exactly you are going, but look for a Wooden sign that says Duck River WMA on the left. If you get to the interstate you have gone too far. You will turn left at the sign onto a rough dirt road. Drive through the trees and it opens up to a parking area. I recomend that you go with someone who knows the trail the first time or to. It is an easy trail will only a few hill, nothing steep. It is about 10 miles round trip. It has a tendency to be grown up in some places and muddy in some. All in all it is not a bad ride. I like it best during the winter.
