Window Cliffs

Come along as Tennessee state employees volunteer their time to map out and create a new hiking trail to one of the newest and most spectacular sites in the volunteer state. The trail is recommended for advanced hikers and will require you to get your feet wet. But, once you are there, it is truly a sight to see.

It took forty years for the state of Tennessee to convince private landowners in Putnam County to sell property that boasts the unique geological formation of Window Cliffs. But, it belongs to the state now. Come along as state workers volunteer their time to map out and create a new hiking trail to this amazing site. In the early 19th century French Naturalist, Charles Leseur visited this area and named it “Cane Creek Bluff.” He did a sketch and it is on display in the La Havre Natural History Museum in France. The trail is now open for business. But, remember before you go up to Window Cliffs be sure to check the weather. If the water is high, the trail will be temporarily closed. And, because of the difficult terrain pets are now allowed.
