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 Percy warner parks

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

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.

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!

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.

Absolutely beautiful! Shaded areas, paved road. Beautiful scenery, all green in the Summer. The smell of earth after the rain is simply wonderful!
Bring water as the heat of the day gets hot and steamy fast.

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!

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

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 of traffic but still a nice challenge.

Hiked the trail with my two boys ages 11 and 8. It was steep at points with a lot of uphill climbs but we were able to do it just fine. Beautiful trail!

Muddy, overgrown. Beautiful scenery, but be prepared to eat webs and bugs for 2.5 miles.

I've been on this trail several times and never been disappointed. I usually do the paved lake trail from the visitor center to the trail, and the nature is simply beautiful. Nowhere else in Nashville can you clearly see such biodiversity.

Had no map but iPhone recorded our hike at 5.78 miles, but we had the impression we might have doubled up one segment. Or maybe the extra was from the parking lot at Deep Hole Trailhead. Great hike. Lots of up and down ... some at the extreme for walking. Highly recommended.

Beautiful trail to escape the city. The main path is paved asphalt and good for children and pets, but you can meander off the path into primitive trails through the woods. You won't get lost because on one side is the Cumberland River (some great views can be found) and the woods always come out into East Nashville. It's all about how far you want to venture. Terrific in fall and spring, tons of color.

My husband and I did this loop and the south lake trail today less than two hours. Very nice. Bring walking poles and knee support if you have knee issues. Parking is limited btw.

It was a nice walk through the woods but the end was fairly anti-climatic without any grand view. I’d do it again because it’s so close and lightly trafficked but it’s not overly interesting.

Beautiful views. Great for kids.

interesting. would do again. well marked trail. bridges. some incline.

Awesome. Hiked it twice this year and plan to again. has stairs with good amount of incline. has an amazing overlook with a great rock to take a picture on. really short so not intense for long.

Good variety of trail. Some incline for challenge. A few bridges. No cool overlook at the end though.

easy trail, actually whole family enjoyed it. First trail I have been on and seen wild life. saw two large owls,a fawn six deer, several turkeys all on one trip and they did not seem frightened they all got close to get a look at us. highly recommend you walk it if you enjoy wildlife.

This was a really nice morning hike in June. The weather was great this day- about 77 degrees and sunny. Although I was hiking in the woods (lots of shade now) and the temperature was lower. There was a slight breeze too.
The trail is well beaten- smooth (some rocks but mostly clay) from lots of hikers and trail runners. This was a moderate trail with lots of ups and downs- one grade had to be 40 degrees up. The condition of the trail was dry today and I can’t say how slippery it would be if raining and wet.
All in all I would definitely recommend this trail. However not for the faint in heart. I would do it again when in town. Thanks to all the trail maintainers.

My favorite trail in the area. Nice mix of strenuous and rest stretches (also referred to as the White Trail). Back in your car in exactly one hour. Perfection!
