Ridgetop Trail at Beaman Park Trail is a 4.2 mile out and back trail located near Nashville, Tennessee that features a great forest setting and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is accessible year-round. Due to its location on the Rim, you can expect steep forested inclines, rocky ridges, and elevations around 1,000 feet on your hike. Although Beaman Park has plenty of rises and valleys, the 2.1-mile Ridgetop Trail is considered moderately difficult. The trail takes you one way into the woods, so prepare for a 4.2-mile round trip hike. If you take the Ridgetop path, you're sure to see hilltop views of a hickory forest, as well as diverse wildlife and plant life.

great hike for a Saturday morning. much more traffic after 9:30/10. I would recommend going early to beat the crowd! I was hoping for clearer views at the top, or toward the end but it's pretty much just a "there and back" hike - nothing to stop and see!

Nice alternative to the busier Warner Park trails. Surface is in decent shape for trail running, although there are a fair number of tree roots and some rocky steep sections that would roll an ankle if given the chance... Steeper areas are likely to erode more with heavier use over time -- hope it'll be maintained better than the Mossy Ridge has been. Woods are pretty with a good number of wildflowers in spring. Be careful of poison ivy growing on lots of trees. Park's map lists total distance of Henry Hollow Loop, Sedge Hill, and Ridgetop Trail (last two out and backs) as a total of 7.6 miles, but I clocked it as 6.6 on a Map My Run app. Lots of moderate changes in elevation -- very easily hiked, and a bit of a challenge when running.

Not much of a view aside from the creek, but it's a good hike without much traffic and plenty of terrain.
