The Ring of Fire Trail stretches from Nashville across the gorgeous Cumberland Plateau and back again. Along the way, you’ll stop in unique, off-the-beaten-path communities. This route explores the territory with forts and homes dating back to the 1700s. It’s also the territory claimed by some of country music royalty; start your trip with a walk at Fontanel, just outside the hum of Music City.
