Photo tour

There are plenty of hiking and off-road bicycling trails here running through more than two thousand acres of the Harbison State Forest. Camping is not permitted, but drinking water and restrooms are available at the picnic area. A canoe landing located provides access to the Broad River for kayaks and canoes. This is becoming a very popular getaway place, since it is conveniently located in a growing community.
