Fieldstone Park/Fieldstone Softball Complex is located at 1377 Hillsboro Rd, Franklin, TN 37069 and is a large facility off of Hillsboro Rd that you can't miss! It consists of four softball fields, a concession stand, restrooms (and porta potty), water fountain, two picnic pavilions with grills and a playground.
To access the Fieldstone Farms walking path you have to leave the park and walk about 1/4 mile north on the sidewalk on Hillsboro before you get to an opening on the left side of the sidewalk with a rocky path that turns into a paved path through the neighborhood. The portion of the walking trail I mapped out provides a pretty straight 3 mile out and back route. I did it like this because I feel like if you are not familiar with the area, you might get lost in all of the different paths connecting to different areas of the neighborhood! Now, if you are like me and like discovering new things while running and don't mind getting a little lost - the paths weave in and out and around the neighborhood and even cross over (and under) Hillsboro Rd to Walgreens and also to Fieldstone Farms on the opposite side. If you look at a satellite view of the area you can somewhat see where all of these paths are and where they connect in the neighborhood and with the different neighborhood parks! You could go miles and miles discovering these paths! You can also run south on Hillsboro to Franklin Greenway Path (Bicentennial Park, Ruby F. Lynch Riverwalk Trail, Joel Cheek Park) + Judge Fulton Greer Park Path and get in a great long run! If you want to run even longer - take the Greenway and run through downtown Franklin to Pinkerton Park Path + Fort Granger Trail and back!
Starting at the back left corner of Fieldstone Park you will run/walk through the parking lot to the front of the park, head north on the sidewalk on Hillsboro before taking a slight left onto the Fieldstone Farms path through the neighborhood. You will aim to stay by the main road - Fieldstone Pkwy - most of the time. When you first enter the path heading north you will come to a few tunnels. One tunnel takes you under Hillsboro the Walgreens and the other takes you under Fieldstone Pkwy. You will head west around Kinder Care before following the path continuing west down Fieldstone Pkwy. Most of the path is behind the houses and covered by trees. At one point by Lexington Pkwy you will make a left and then a quick right to travel up Glastonbury Dr (through the neighborhood sidewalk) before continuing up the path that is between two houses. The path then continues on past the houses and to Lynwood Park. Once you get to the end of the parking lot you can turn around and run/walk back to where you began. This is the most direct 3 mile route from the park and through the Fieldstone Farms paths. It has a 630 ft elevation gain and is a pretty, shaded path that you can explore for hours if you choose!

I am a food loving, activity seeking health coach who resides in Franklin, TN with my husband and two sweet dogs (Lola & Penny).
I believe everyone should eat balanced and not cut food groups if you don't medically need to. All foods can fit in a healthy diet. Unfortunately, I have to avoid gluten and also limit myself with dairy, so my goal is to provide healthy, gluten-free/dairy-free recipes so EVERYONE can enjoy all foods, even if you do have to cut out certain food groups. My recipes are encouraged for everyone to eat, not just for those with sensitivities/allergies! Most of my recipes can be easily converted by using real dairy and whole-wheat in place of my allergy-free substitutes.
