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.

If you enjoy adventurous woodland paths, this is not for you. It was like visiting a farm where they'd used a large mower and had mown paths without any real destination in mind from field to field, then put up an outdoor center, and called those paths, "trails". There are no markers, so you may want to use a map or GPS and bring water on hot days. There is no water around, except the river, which is not accessible or humans or dogs.

Fairly easy hike. Went there with my dog and it was a good distance and level of difficulty to make her tired. We came across a few families with children who all seemed to be doing alright. There terrain is not flat so keep that in mind. The scenery is beautiful.

this trail is overly easy. a 5 year old girl scout troop could enjoy doing this. so if you complain about this trail or its condition, just know there's a girl scout somewhere laughing at you. if you want nicely groomed/paved trails, go to a city park and enjoy being a Nancy.

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.

Great place for flowers!

Easy, paved, 2 mile trail that goes around the perimeter of a lake. Really nice views.

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!

It is nice place to hiking but it is not kept up u can’t walk through there all grown up spiders all through trail we walked in the spider webs got spiders all on us surprise we didn’t get bit

Nice walk in the woods and along the lake shore.

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.

I’ve been going here for years I’ve never had a problem here it’s nice and shady all the time and a great place to walk my dog. It’s not to long and not to short it’s just right.

Nice trail with exposed tree roots and rocks - very interesting and beautiful. Scenic views of the lake. On the way back to the parking lot we came upon some deer. Recommend!

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

trail was good, well marked. I was hoping for more lake views along the way only saw the lake like 3 times.. it's mostly forest and it's pretty thick between you and the lake. for being closer to town is a great choice for the limited Nashville area

I wouldn't really consider this a "hike" but it is a beautiful destination. We had the falls all to ourselves the day we went. It was 98 degrees that day and we were very comfortable at the base of the falls and the water was cold. It is hard to find the Natural area. I recommend it for kids. The day we went the water only came half way up my calf but I'm sure that changes. If you want to explore in the cave or even just walk over to it, you will need your hiking boots but I recommend water shoes for the base of the falls. Its very rocky. Don't skip this experience! Enjoy Loves!

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.

NO HIKING , NO RUNNING
Mountain Biking only.
You will get hurt if you are hiking and running and will be responsible for accident and damages to bikers property.
Nice rock garden!

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.

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.

This is a great trail. We encountered singles, couples and families - many with dogs on this gorgeous hike. It’s shaded and well marked. Just a great hike (at a steady pace with a couple of brief photo stops it took a family of four with teen boys 1 hour 50 minutes.) Parking is somewhat limited. Only a portolet - no bathroom.

Great trails and mostly shaded which is great in TN heat! Plan ahead - no bathrooms.

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.

Probably a better hike in the winter time...summer hiking proved to be very difficult with overgrowth and the accompanying tick infestation. Hiked from the 1812 monument to Garrison Creek and decided to walk the road back rather than pick more ticks off of me and my dog.

Not a lot of elevation. Really nice around Mile 5 and 6. Spiders. EVERYWHERE. Glad I did it once, but definitely a one and done experience.

loved going off trail

Used to walk this trail every day. Very easy with a paved path. Had many animal experiences here.
