The Jack Trail , Sippin’ to Saddles
The Jack Trail is a journey filled with history, music, horse racing and whiskey making. Reclaim the pioneer spirit at Cannonsburg Village in Murfreesboro — a reconstructed "living history museum" featuring a gristmill, blacksmith's shop and one-room schoolhouse. Next, stop in Manchester to see the site of Bonnaroo, the most renowned music festival in America that Rolling Stone magazine said "Changed the history of rock and roll." Come tour the George Dickel Distillery in nearby Tullahoma. Nestled in the Cumberland Plateau, George Dickel uses the mountain water that runs fresh and clear from Cascade Springs. Tour the nation's oldest distillery — the world-reknowned Jack Daniel's in Lynchburg. Next stop on the trail is Kelso where Pritchards Distillery uses crystal clear, Tennessee spring water to make some of the finest rum available. Be sure to call ahead for a free tour. After distillery touring, high step to Shelbyville, home of the historic and world-famous annual Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration. The Jack Trail is an intoxicating blend of everything that makes the great state of Tennessee fascinating and unique. Points of interest in Franklin/Williamson County include Martin's Barbeque Joint and Arrington Vineyards.
