Got to the trail head right after the sun came up and was the only person there. The trail is pretty flat and the rocks and tree roots are bearable. The four mile point makes for a good bathroom break and refreshing view of the lake. I will definitely be coming back soon!

I Walked through a group of at least six deer! Never have I been so close to one deer let alone three! The view of the water is almost constant, providing a nice breeze while you hike along in the shade. Various breathtaking moments of scenery!
Trail gets you a little winded at moments but for the most part it's just about right. Watch for tree roots!

Did the whole loop. Trail is well maintained, but incredibly rocky. Make sure tires and bike are well maintenenced. Overall trail is fun and will go again.

Great walking trail and a once little get away. There are usually lot of animals and a general feeling of calmness.
Here is a link to a video with footage recorded on the Volunteer Trail.

Great day hike. The Volunteer trail is NOT a loop. There is a 4 mile loop, called the day loop, and it connects to volunteer trail. It's a little misleading. I met a woman running the trail today and she thought it was loop... She was not happy to learn that she needed to retrace her steps to get back to the parking lot.
It's a great hike. Lots of rocks and tree roots... So be careful

I love this trail! It's paved and safe! You also get to walk across a bridge and take in the beautiful views.

Relatively flat and even. New to trail running and not particularly fast, but found this to be an easy run and picked up good speed on some of the portions. Enjoyed it.

Awesome trail. Moderate difficultly. Bring water and snacks especially if you go to Base Camp and back.

Awesome. Next to my house. Been to it many times!

Beautiful trail, well marked, and dog friendly. Make sure to check for ticks afterwards, as I picked seven off my dog after our hike. (Always a good practice anyway, but use extra caution!)

Loved this trail. One of my favorites in the fall! The trail is marked well, beautiful views and close to Nashville( my home). I would recommend to anyone I would say moderate with spots that are difficult but doable!
