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, marking needs upgrade. If you lost a red bontrager glove yesterday out there call me, I have it. 6152022557

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.

Nice trail, fairly easy and short. Beautiful water fall while visiting during the winter season. Trail offers very nice views of the Valley and local farms.

This is my favorite mountain biking trail so far in the Nashville area. Really flowy, can knock out a long ride pretty quick due to how fast this trail is.

2 miles from my house...thus a great place to hike!

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!

Even if you're not a hiker, this would be the one to do if you visit the park, super short hike for amazing views and wildlife

Absolutely gorgeous if you go all the way to the falls

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.

Well laid out trail, you can stop at the overlook at the top of the falls but the real payoff is going around to the bottom of the falls.

Nice views, adds to the waterfall vs. just taking the walk to the falls.

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.

So much fun! 6 miles round trip, 9 river crossings. Deepest part was up to my knees and on a couple crossings, the current was strong! Each crossing has cables so that was helpful. The waterfall, the window cliffs view at the top and the water crossings make this a new favorite!

It was in the 40’s when we started the hike. The Water crossings were frigid! All crossings were mid shin to mid thigh! Not a good hike if your wanting to stay dry! The waterfall was way rad! The cliffs at the end of the trail were an awesome to eat some food and enjoy the view! On the way out it was in the 60’s the water was still cool but much more tolerable. The last thing you do is walk up 300 ft of elevation right before the parking lot. Probably not a good hike for small children, but very fun!! Will do again!

Short, but very pretty view!

Moderately easy hiking with beautiful scenery. Make sure to give right of way to the bikes.

My review of this trail might change next time, but we made it about 10 minutes in and both bikes had flat tires from fallen branches covered with thorns. I don't know if it was deliberately done, if it was bad luck, or just not well maintained. I will try it again in a week or two and hopefully have a better review.

hard but worth it. cross water 10 times

Nice trail. No crowds Baker Bluff and Jackson Falls are both scenic.

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

Maybe I should rate this poorly to keep it secret... bring your water shoes. Lots of stream crossings and a tough short hike at the halfway point for a great view

0.7 miles to bottom of falls, all downhill. good payoff

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
