StoryWalk at Tennessee Valley

A StoryWalk® is a fun, family-friendly, outdoor activity, where pages of a book are placed along a walking route. Each stop along the way displays one page of the book.

The Hike by Alison Farrell is about three young friends who set out on a hike to explore their local forest.

Your StoryWalk starts at the Tennessee Valley Trailhead - 591 Tennessee Valley Road, in Mill Valley. Follow the Tennessee Valley Trail through your local National Park to read the whole story. Look for the pages alongside the path. 

Details for planning your visit: 

  • The StoryWalk distance is approximately 1/2 mile. Estimated time to complete the walk is 30 minutes. 
  • The trail is wheelchair and stroller accessible. 
  • There is a parking lot and restrooms available at the trailhead. 
  • Please remember to pack a snack and water bottle, and to bring extra layers to stay comfortable. 
  • Dogs, even on leash, are not allowed on any trails in Tennessee Valley.
