The trail itself is great for hiking and running. I try to hike the premier trail 2 times a week. If you start from the parking area by Shelter 1 and enter the trail at shelter 2 you will have 2 very significant inclines. At the 2.5 mile mark just past the creek crossing you will start a 3/4 incline in elevation a few places steep mostly just long. Then at the end of the trail about 100 yards very steep to the top. Fast hiking, trail is an old fire road.

Easy trail. Saw 15 people, 3 horses, 2 dogs, 1 deer, about 40 cows, 3 turtles, and a couple dozen geese. If you want an easy trail, this is it.

This trail is perfect for anyone looking for an easy but longer hike. Mostly flat, with a few small inclines. Nice for walks with dogs, and plenty of places for a creek side drink for the pooches. Went on a beautiful Sunday afternoon and we only passed about 10 (if that) other hikers the whole time! Connects to all the other trails, so you can change up your route, which is always nice. Will be back, despite the 40 min drive from Nashville!

This trail was a lot of fun. Very scenic and our kids enjoyed passing the horseback trail riders occasionally.

It was really well maintained and very easy casual stroll through the woods. It made for a lovely post thanksgiving leftover hike.

Perimeter Trail is a great leisurely stroll through the woods. If you're looking for an intense hike, this isn't it. The trail is wide, well maintained, very few roots or even rocks. All the trails in the park are marked clearly. Perfect trail to take the kids. Beautiful little park not too far away from the city and you don't have to deal with the crowds. Great for what it is. Enjoy!

A friend and I came out to bike this trail and it was a relatively fun and easy one to ride. If you're looking for a good trail for kids or beginners, then this is a good place to start. The trails are all wide, with very few challenges or even steep inclines, but an all around pleasant, pretty ride. I probably won't be coming back simply because I like more challenging trails, but it's nice for what it is.

More of a brisk walk than a hike. However, it is a great quick respite from Nashville. In the first few miles we saw an owl, deer and more butterflies than can be counted. Takes you through some nice varying terrain and was almost empty for the 4 hours we were there.
