Jones Mill is a 3.4 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Mt Juliet, TN that features a lake and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible from March until October.
Mapped it with the app and it's more like 3.8 miles. Disappointed.
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.
Well maintained and not too busy trail, it is fun for mountain bike or hike.
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.
Rocky but nice over look at knob hill
Nice walk with the dog
Great trail for a day hike with our dog! Not a busy trail but still well maintained and well marked. If you do the full loop there is a view of the lake, a bridge, and a cool rock formation.
Nice hike close to home. Pretty easy, with minimal views. Still plenty of wildlife, but nothing exciting. We like that it's not too busy and we can bring our dog.
A++++ GREAT TRAIL TO WALK WITH THE DOGS AND WIFE!
Hiked the tail today and like Lauren said it is longer than the 3 miles stated. trail is well marked and maintained, but I suspect its a lot more fun on a bike than a hike. The lower portion of the trail brings you within ear shot of Percy Priest lake but that's about all. I prefer the Volunteer Trail day loop 4 miler to this loop, but Its nice to have variety and I will hike it again.
Hiked this today. Grabbed a map for the trail before heading on it. Map wasn't very helpful, and this trail is actually 4.08 miles long. It was a good hike, and I would definitely agree that it should be called moderate. However, the distance on this should be corrected. It was pretty muddy, so wear hiking boots if you're going on foot!
Rode this trail today with the wife.
Not too hard a trail, minus climbing a few rocks and what not. Not a whole lot to see other than trees...
But overall a fun ride.
Great trail. Lots of loose rock, some 8-10" off the ground. Nothing that'll make you flip over the handle bars and knock your two front teeth out, team player...but enough that you have to pay attention. Plenty of roots too. Anyway, air your tires up right and have fun. Not a long trail but enough to have a good time. Saw 6 other riders, all very nice and friendly.
Nate, the first reviewer has it. Two loops, two different worlds. One is wooded, and the other leads you through sections of cedar glades. A good, fun mountain bike trail. Not too technical for the most part, just some areas of large rocks and roots where you have to pay attention. Be careful when on the connector trails, as the traffic is two ways. Overall, a a fun ride of loose rocks in the glades and dirt in the wooded areas.
My first mountain bike trail I can't wait to go back and try it again had a lot of fun......
My first experience on a mtn bike trail. Close to home, very quiet and peaceful, great scenery. The trail didn't seem too tough for a beginner. Roots and loose rock was a bit tricky at first, but after several tours I think I have it down. Most rocks and roots are short and manageable. Not a lot of switchbacks, but enough to make it interesting. Can easily do 2 rounds back to back. Very dependable trail.
Jones Mill is a great loop trail and hike through the woods that gets you away from the city. Not too crowded at anytime, went during the week and was the only one on the trail. Flat terrain with a few climbs and glimpses of Percy Priest Lake. Be sure to take the Bald Knob connector at a little over a mile into the trail to hike up to a fantastic overlook of Percy Priest.
