Nice easy walk with a great view

A very pleasant walk. A great walk to see the beauty of nature.

Nice gem off 40. I wanted to get a little movement in before the drive back to Memphis from Nashville. There’s more than just the out and back here. Be sure to check out the historic tunnel as well as the narrows. The springtime flowers were beautiful and the trail is very well maintained.

Beautiful sunset hike. The wild turkey calls on the walk made extra amazing!

This was a very good hike for me and my 5 year old. Great views. Not too hard. There are a couple narrow spots on the ridge which could be scary with younger kids. Will definitely go back and bring my 9 year old.

Peaceful but not necessarily scenic. Two loops. Wide trails.

Easily my favorite park and trail in Nashville

Pretty, short, steep, narrow, fun!

Such an amazing and beautiful trail! It really does have everything if you can tough out the 10 miles. It does get somewhat technical at points, so I think the "hard" rating is appropriate. Give yourself about 6 hours to complete it if you can keep a pretty good pace.

Amazing trail! Challenging, but so beautiful!! One of the best hikes I've been on so far!

I’m not sure why this site has the trail at 9.1 miles. This is the 2nd time I have completed the trail and I get right at 10 miles each time. Once again, the trail was amazing. Late March, started in the morning at about 45 degrees and the temp never got above 55 degrees. It was perfect hiking weather, but really chilly at Raven’s Point. We did the trail counter-clockwise and went through the Gizzard first. It’s tough to enjoy Raven’s Point when you’re pretty exhausted. Next time I’ll try this trail starting with Dog Hole first and finishing in the Gizzard. Didn’t need as much water with cooler temps, but if you have a small Helinox chair, I would recommend bringing it. I’m going to pick up a couple for the next trip. It would be amazing to be able to sit next to the creek for a while and enjoy the peace and quiet for a while. Can’t wait to do it again!

I like this trail. First time being on it. Love the water scenery.

Good walk with kids, beautiful falls and easy in and out to the water

Had an amazing hike there, one of the most challenging I've been on in a long time... well marked trail...

As a Mt. Juliet resident, my dog and I frequent this trail--we usually complete the 4.4 mile "day loop" portion. I would rank this trail "easy" over "moderate" for sure--there isn't a whole lot of elevation gain, and when there is it isn't for very long. The trail is well marked and well maintained, though it does get washed out a bit after heavy rain. I would highly recommend doing this one on a winter day (especially if it snows!) or during some light rain--it's really the only time you'll get any solitude. It's pretty crowded on most weekends if the weather is nice, and the parking lot will fill up by 9am in the summer. My older dog absolutely loves this trail--it's easy enough for him and the perfect length. Overall, I would definitely recommend if you're looking for an easy woodsy stroll close to town with some bonus lake views.

Super fun and worth the hike. Very rocky. So many sites to see and many small waterfalls. The views from ravens point is worth the extra mile.

This is it for trails, has everything!!! An awesome, amazing place. One of my favorites!

Easy and good for short morning or afternoon hike.

Awesome trail for being less than 15 mins from Nashville. Lot of terrain change...pine/oak/cedar/exposed sandstone. Very cool. Saw a lot of wildlife...squirrels, ducks, rabbit, 2 loons and a huge owl! Very well marked and traveled.

nice family hike.

This was an excellent hike. Amazing views and plenty of places to relax. Ravens point is a view worth the hike. Take lots of water!

I really enjoyed this trail. I had such a blast with the family. It's a nice and easy stroll.

Outstanding! Make sure you start early and plan your whole day around it. So much to see. You’ll want to stop and take it all in. Maybe consider camping overnight to break it up. It’s a hike! But a great one!

What a sweet spot! Amazing lake views and so many trails you can choose from. Dogs aren’t allowed on the trial but they are allowed on Otter Road which is just as beautiful. :) Perfect for an afternoon walk.

One of my top three trails.

Really loved this hike.
great for pets

Beginning at backpacking and used this trail as our very first one to hike. Kids had a blast with it and enjoyed the waterfalls. very easy hike but a good one to help ignite the hiking bug.

One of my favorites! Gorgeous and a nice day hike. It's incredible all 4 seasons. It's somewhat rugged for beginners but there is a shorter hike that leads into this one, it also goes on to a 13 mile hike if you want a little more.

Short but fun. A few rocky sections to challenge your stride. Well marked. I’d do it again!!
