Very short but really three options for hikes, one that’s rather steep but takes you to a breathtaking overlook of the river gorge and countryside. Great if you have an hour or two, before river activities.

I’ve done this hike a few times, once when the water was low and today with lots of free flowing creeks. It was an amazing time a day to hike. Went all the way to the top to see the Window Cliffs first and then stopped for a refreshing dip in the falls!! If you want to get in the falls i recommend hiking down the far side and climbing into the water at the bottom of the falls. There is a nice rock shelf for you to walk all the way up to the falls! Bring your GoPro for great pictures!! Poles are always recommended for passing through the 7 creek crossings, they Tend to be slippery no matter the amount of water/current flow!!

Great hike. Creeks were high due to recent rain although easy to pass using guide wires. View at end of trail would be better in fall with less foliage. Overall a strenuous hike with poles recommended!

Surprisingly short and steep, with a remarkable view of the Harpeth River. imho it's too easily accessible. Would do it again if in the area.

VERY STRENUOUS!! VERY WORTHWHILE!! Please make sure to bring a backpack with hydration & snacks. Heavily inclined.

I’ve never been disappointed with my time on this trail. It can get busy and parking is difficult @ times. Don’t let it scare you; be patient - it’s worth the wait!

I’ve been coming here since I was a kid 28 years now this is the nicest park there is. Always a ton of wildlife out I’m glad they have the rules they have there it keeps things nice. Parking is difficult if you go on the weekends but besides that no complaints.

Love it.

This trail has strict rules. No running very little view of the lake the first half. So many people was just very disappointed. The park was nice just limited. Won’t go back

Not the right map/distance/elevation/etc. for the trail here. The map only takes you around the park/parking lot. The real trail is farther back. We walked some of it but had no idea how far it went or where it led so decided to turn around. Nothing is marked other than a picture of the trail at the park. Discouraging.

Great hike if living in the Nashville area. I enjoy it because it's easily accessible after a day at the office and can get some good incline along with miles without it being too far outside the city. I recommend bringing hiking poles. There are some steep areas and the poles make it nice. I hiked it during dusk and you see all sorts of wildlife at that time.

I wouldn't consider the trail hard. There is hardly any elevation gain and the creek crossings weren't terrible. I went late July and some of the creeks were dry or hardly had any water. Definitely wear water shoes, otherwise your shoes will be wet the entire time. I had a hard time locating the viewing area of the window cliffs. It says overlook, but usually when it says that you assume it's below you, but instead you need to look up and you will see them. Definitely missed that and had to ask another hiker. So be sure to look up!

Strictly a Mountain Bike trail. classes are held here, Races are held here,and you could get seriously hurt hiking. my top speed as a biker on this trail is 21mph on these trails. I do not reccomend hiking them. You could get hit easily and legally you would be at fault for injury to biker and property.
As a mountain bike trail this has everything you want and its getting better. They are building gaps and jumps near Jeep hill, more connectors, and fast loops. Sumner County Fave for 20yrs!

This trail was awesome. Short and sweet, has cool rock formations and a cool little history behind the lake. This honestly felt like moderate difficulty to me, though. The trails aren’t super well marked but it’s still not that difficult to get around.

It was a nice change of scenery just outside of Nashville. Lots of trail runners. The terrain is fairly rocky with occasional smooth dirt coverage. Fairly maintained trail with good shade. I found this to be a pretty strenuous hike, took 2.5 hours to complete loop taking a water break every couple miles. 6.2 miles total in and out.

Very enjoyable with such varied terrain. Lots of trail traffic but everyone was very nice and enjoying the morning temperatures. Hats off to those running the trail.

Beautiful trail!

This is a marvelous hike. Wear proper shoes and clothes for getting wet. Depending on the levels, the creek can be high or low. If current is mild, great swimming holes. Pack a lunch and enjoy the view. Before it was a park, it was not as diverse as now. Great low lands to enjoy. State has done a great job putting in split rails to keep you from sliding down the hills (thanks)! If in the area, please enjoy but know this is a hike, not a walk in the woods. The hard rating is earned

More of a mountain bike trail but not too bad. Just keep your eyes and ears open for bikers. Not a bad walk though. Saw lots of deer in the woods which was cool.

Pictures don’t do it justice. The waterfall is gorgeous and my twelve yr old loved wading underneath of it. Make sure to bring water shoes or flip flops for little ones to change into at the bottom. Saw lots of families with toddlers. Keep in mind the path was slippery at some points and a little tricky.

We parked at Baker Bluff, checked out the overlook and got on the trail to Jackson Falls. It was a good little hike (15 - 20 minutes maybe), but the waterfall was more of a trickle than a beautiful cascade. It’s probably really awesome in the Spring and anytime when there’s been a day or two of rain.

It wasn’t too crowded when we were there. There were some families with young kids and dogs and they all seemed to be having a great time splashing around.

Closed for today due to strong currents

My husband and I hiked this trail over the weekend in a rain storm and it was awesome! It was a little busy when we got there around 3:30 or 4, but as soon as the rain started, people got out of there and we had the whole place to ourselves. Beautiful waterfall and fun little hike!

This is a great trail. I liked it better before it became a park due to all the people that are now on it. But it's a great place with beautiful views. Just remember if you go to the bottom, you will be walking through a creek most of the way, so wear appropriate shoes.

This short trail is so relaxing and has wonderful views at highest elevation.

It’s really nice hike overall. I took my 7 year old and she got through all the creek crossings just fine and we hiked all the way to the cliff. Just wear shoes made for hiking and getting wet and you’re good. The only bad part is the hike back to the parking lot because it is steep!

Lots of hikers and runners on Saturday morning but that is to be expected. Beautiful tall trees. Trail is a bit narrow in places and the elevation changes make it seem longer than expected.

Lots to see in just a short walk.
