This was a mostly easy hike with some steps and steeper areas nearer the falls. To see the falls you have to either walk through the water or stone step your way to it. The pay off is worth it. I wish I had brought a towel and bathing suit. I do not recommend Adam's Falls Loop trail that goes off this trail. The falls were nonexistent and we walked through lots of spider webs.

Nice trail but when they “fixed” the lake they turned it into a mosquito breeding pond swamp nothing more

Beautiful trail. Not crowded for Tuesday hike. We took our dogs and it seems like everyone else we saw on the trail did the same.

Overall, good hike. Only thing like it in the Boro. The main trail - Marshall Knobbs - is less than 3 miles... you have to take BOTH side trails; Valley View and Rocky Path - to get it over 4- close to 5.

This is a short hike with a great, refreshing reward at the end. Beautiful! We will hike this one again.

Nice hike with nice falls. We added busby falls to the loop just to play in the water more

Hiked this entire loop counterclockwise. River was gorgeous and shallow enough to wide to the opposite side for a hammock nap! Valley View trail was the typical walk in the woods. After a wrong turn we ended up cliff side US-231. My favorite on this loop was the Rocky Path trail, appropriately named. Most challenging and fun part of the hike. Much like a typical South Cumberland trail.
Would highly recommend this trail if you’re in the area. After a couple wrong turns we clocked 5.51 miles. Nice way to spend a Saturday afternoon!

Love Percy warner parks

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.

Lack of trail markings can make it a little confusing. The waterfalls are great and it’s a very easy little loop.

We came with our four kids, ages 2, 4, 6, and 8. We decided to go counterclockwise which I think was the right move. We already got the payoff of seeing the falls before we had to climb up the stairs, so we had no choice. :) We had the youngest boy in an Ergo, but the older girls all handled the trail—and the stairs—just fine. The trail was clearly-marked, but it did help to have downloaded the map from AllTrails just to be sure we were on the right path.

The falls were incredible, some of the best we’ve seen around. We really loved that the pools are wade-able, and you don’t have to decide you want to go swimming in the cold to get close. Combine that with a really wide, really beautiful cascading waterfall, this one is near the top of our list.

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.

I’m a photographer and have to say that I live 5 minutes away from it and it’s always a new adventure. Being able to capture something new every single time. Will definitely recommend it to all who visit or are becoming homeowners here.

Nice little camp ground/ hiking and picnicking area.

Great hike. Make sure to take the Rocky Path for more of a challenge.

great trail. it has a 4 mile option and a 5 mile option. both are loops you can also combine them for about an 8 mile hike. BEAUTIFUL scenery well marked and good amount of traffic. I drive over an hr to get to this trail and it's worth every min.

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 really fun trail with some nice scenery and a few challenging spots broken up by some relaxing strolls. Great trail if you have a dog that requires lots of exercise, my Pyrenees Husky mix is tuckered out after this trail.

My home trail. It’s a nice, quiet trail with several connecting trails you can use to cut the hike short or make it longer.

My local favorite! Every part is beautiful and only about 1-2 tough inclines if you do the blue trail backwards

Wonderful. I’ll definitely be back soon.

Great trail that I would rate as intermediate. Some of the Rocky Path section were a little above beginner.
I will make this hike again!

Great trail for running if you're looking for something more mellow without steep gains. If you park at the Couchville Lake parking lot, you can make the run a good out-and-back for 15ish miles.

Really well kept trail system that's nice for trail runs without having to travel far. I ended up weaving through the different trails here for a ~8mile run, and there were some good climbs (specifically the red trail).

One of my favorite hikes in Nashville because it is one of the few here up on a ridge above the river valley. I don’t agree with reviews that are expecting some view grander than you would find in most local parks. It is what it is, and views from any trail are limited to the character of the land. There are some nice views along the trail down hallows and thru tree breaks. It has its own rewards if you don’t go looking for a Glacier Point experience.

Pretty easy hike. We took our 3 boys: 5, 6 years and a 5 month old in a baby carrier. The down slope wasn’t bad as long as you take it slow. We will definitely be back!

Perfect trail for a long meandering in the woods. A few portions of the trail follow a clearing under power lines. Only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. Other trails connect to keep you busy for a while.

Definitely my favorite trail in Nashville. The PW Trail is complex enough to get the heart pumping at times, but easy enough so any can do it. I love the scenery and stepping out of the chaos of the city and into the beautiful, plush greenery at PW. Highly recommend this trail to anyone who loves a little challenge and workout!
