I am very familiar with every single trail in this park, and I'm beyond impressed. I run here regularly. The park offers everything from nature trails to paved paths to a gravel road through the woods. The paved trails are on rolling hills, with a couple of "false flat" stretches. The hiking / trail running ranges from easy to difficult, so there's something here for everyone. The trails are fairly well marked and well maintained. There are so many out-and-back or loop options I've made out here on the trails and/or paved paths that giving y'all an estimate of the distance of an average route would vary too greatly to be an accurate representation. I can, however, get a minimum of a 3 to 4 mile run in on any route I take (which does not include detours I take onto other trails to make the run longer). Clean bathrooms are located at the visitor center. I highly recommend Barfield Crescent Park!
Great running or hiking trail.
Really enjoyed this trail! Paved, dirt, and rocky trails. Mostly flat trails make it a nice easy walk through the woods. The different surfaces make it perfect for all hiking and walking skill levels.i suggest starting in counter-clockwise direction from Wilderness Center. Great way to get the youngins into hiking. Also a nice little trail system to try out gear before doing bigger hikes ( if you live in the area). I will recommend these trails and return.
Good for getting a little exercise and fresh air, very family/dog friendly, not strenuous nor boring.
nice little trail, nothing crazy. saw plenty of dogs and kids walking this trail.
Absolutely loved this trail we did the 3 mile loop and it was absolutely beautiful! The trail cut through rock formations along the dry Creek bed (November) with all the changing and falling leaves. 4 thumbs up!
Nice, family place.
Favorite trail in the Murfreesboro area - great hills! It's a beautiful little get away in the city and good for kids.
Good trail. Starts out as asphalt then when it first approaches the river (was dried up besides a couple of spots) turns into an actual dirt trail. Also, was a little congested at first then once got past the asphalt we just pasted a few people on the trail.
Nice easy trail to hike, convenient loop. Was passed by several incoming trail runners.
Great hike! Loved it!
