Heavily trafficked trail by runners, walkers, and wanderers. Easy trail, very well marked, no major ups or downs.

A lot to see for such a short hike

This was my second hike of the year. Even in January the trail was well maintained, and was fun and easy, with not too many people on the trail at once. Moderate is a good rating, as there is enough uphill to get your heart pumping, easy downhill, and enough flat trail on top to get some beautiful views! Nice features along the entire trail, as well. I definitely recommend for anyone looking for a good hike around Nashville!

My son and I went on the Hidden Lake Trail after his school day for the first time. it was an adventure for us! we loved finding all these off-trail paths. it was so beautiful as the sun set. Nature is a love of ours, and this trail was lovely.

I loved it. Definitely one my favorite spots.

Well maintained walking trail.

Great little trail to hike with a group or pet. The cave is always fun to visit.

Kid friendly (+6) and scenic with short trails. It is mostly not challenging.

Short and easy hike. Decent view at the top and cool man-made waterfall. Good hike for some who may not be in the best shape.

Easy for trail running with only around 1000 elevation. Trail does get confusing toward the end.

This is a great trail! It has great elevation, nice views, and relatively easy footing (I.e. not super technical) except when muddy like it was today. I will certainly run this trail again the next time I’m in Nashville!

It was an easy hike that meandered through the woods. The park borders a busy road, so you could still hear the traffic.

There were a lot of dogs and children, so if you have dogs and children, this is a great one to go on.

The cave is an interesting feature. Unfortunately, it was closed for the season.

The rangers were really friendly. All in all, it was a pleasant walk and a good way to stretch our legs on a long road trip.

This is a great spot for hiking in Nashville. It's very popular, so go early or on a week day if you want to avoid the crowds. The trail has some moderate hills, but nothing too steep or overwhelming. The views are better at Radnor Lake or on the Warner Woods Trail, but Mossy Ridge is scenic enough and a better workout. The distance is actually closer to 5.5 or 6 miles, because the parking lot isn't right at the trailhead.

Simple walk through the woods.

Rolling hills, follow the single red blazes, all in all a good loop if in metro Nashville and need a trail. Nothing awe inspiring, pretty heavily trafficked, would be near impossible to get lost.

Short quick hike. The views were overrated. The highlight is the lower trail on the north side of the bluff, the tunnel trail, it takes you to a manmade tunnel, interesting history.

Simple walk. Sinifigance is the trail of tears, the trail is evident by deep ruts leading to the river.

Short, but very pretty view!

We did Ridgetop and Henry Hollow. The trails were beautiful and well marked but it turns out the area isn't safe at all! I didn't see the reviews about this but we saw what we thought was car window glass near 2 parking spaces when we first got there. The suspension was confirmed when we got back and saw that another couple's car had been broken into. That means at least 3 cars have been broken into recently. We're just blessed it wasn't ours. If you go to Beaman don't leave anything of value in your car! A broken window is bad enough without having something stolen.

Fun trail. I went clockwise and got lost pretty early on and agree that signage could improve a little. I cant wait to go back. I enjoyed the diverse ecosystems that you get to experience throughout the run.

The trail is interesting but not very well defined. The worst part is that a lot of people use the trail to walk their dogs. They tend to ignore the leash requirement and make no attempt to pick up their pets' poop. There are poop bags available at the trail head, but I have yet to see someone with one in hand. Actually stepped on poop during one of my runs. I have run the trail a half a dozen times and have never seen any park staff on the trail nor any law enforcement in the area. Lovely place but poorly managed and insecure.

This is a legit 10 mile loop, I absolutely love it. Minus one star only because there are some parts where you can inadvertently go off trail because of some rogue trails blazed by lost folks thinking they were still on the correct trail. Some signage at these junctions would solve this problem.

It’s a pretty easy trail. I like to do it clockwise and hit the ore pit trail at the end. Good overnight for beginners. Really like seeing all the creeks, lakes, beaver dams and such.

Great views and very quiet on a mid-fall afternoon.

Enjoyable stroll. Hidden Lake was beautiful as the sun was setting and the leaves are about to change.

Nice beginner hike, took my dog with me, very wide trail. Beautiful views of the hidden lake. Would recommend to any beginner, also very well marked trail

Great day hike. Nothing too challenging.

My favorite trail.

This trail is quite popular for good reason. I rarely went more than 5 minutes without coming across another person. The beginning and end of the loop parallels Vaughn's Creek which is picturesque. I was surprised how rocky the first quarter mile of the trail is as you ascend the hill. What sets this trail apart from most others around Nashville are the high elevations and the large old growth hardwood forests with some of the largest cedars and oaks I've ever seen. The climb to the top of this trail was pretty brutal for a beginner hiker like me, with the seemingly endless switchbacks, but I certainly felt accomplished by the time I reached the top of the highest knob. The rest of the trail takes it easier on the hiker.
