The Jack Trail is waiting for you: a journey filled with history, music, horse racing and whiskey making. Reclaim your 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. Wet your whiskey whistle once again with a tour of the nation’s oldest distillery — the world-reknowned Jack Daniel’s in Lynchburg. Each year, thousands flock to tour the distillery and warehouses filled with 20,160 barrels of sour mash. Later on the trail, you’ll head to 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.
