Great park and it was a great day to be on the trail. The waterfalls are spectacular, especially after all the rains. Not a very difficult trial but I would not recommend it for younger children, it would be too easy for a small child to get swept into the river.

Awesome trail. Very beautiful. Able to get close to the water.

Great trails, and we were able to find a few geodes near the river which made it even better.

This is the closest trail ride to my house. It’s well maintained and has some fun technical rock sections. I wish there were some longer climbs and descents but if you live in Mount Juliet, you can’t beat the quality to convenience ratio.

Nice short hike with the dog and kiddos

This is a great trail! It has great elevation, nice views, and relatively easy footing (I.e. not super technical) except when muddy like it was today. I will certainly run this trail again the next time I’m in Nashville!

Loved this paved trail. I wish it had more signs as we got lost for a while trying to find the exit. But that’s my only complaint, overall I loved the paved hiking option. Beautiful scenery, friendly people. Will make it a ritual of coming here to this beautiful trail as I now visit Nashville a few times per year.

Great trail! Easy to follow. Not crowded.

Great place to hike , good workout. I have seen deer, turkey and even a few coyotes. I will definitely go back. PEACE

This is a great spot for hiking in Nashville. It's very popular, so go early or on a week day if you want to avoid the crowds. The trail has some moderate hills, but nothing too steep or overwhelming. The views are better at Radnor Lake or on the Warner Woods Trail, but Mossy Ridge is scenic enough and a better workout. The distance is actually closer to 5.5 or 6 miles, because the parking lot isn't right at the trailhead.

Rolling hills, follow the single red blazes, all in all a good loop if in metro Nashville and need a trail. Nothing awe inspiring, pretty heavily trafficked, would be near impossible to get lost.

Pretty, very easy hike. We took our small dog for the first time and she had no problems.

Best trail running in the area with good climbs. The loop is 4.5 miles, the connector is 1 mile and one of several ways to access the loop. This is the longest access method, some shorter options are Deep Wells entrance and Chickering entrance.

This place is pretty amazing. It has it all... rivers, waterfalls, meadows, and lots of history (as told through the museum and trail markers). I took my dog and she had an amazing time running with me through the meadow, hiking the trails, and playing in the river. We saw a huge blue heron and a herd of deer in the meadow. It’s a magical place! The only complaint I have is what others noted - the trail is just dreadfully marked. I spent 2 hours essentially wandering around looking at my GPS here on AllTrails and trying to figure out where I was, as did nearly everyone I passed. The problem is threefold: there are multiple trails and spurs (not just “a loop”), AllTrails is not accurate here (not even close), and again, trails are poorly marked. An old pro told me to stop next time at the museum to get a trail map, which I had foregone since I had my trusty AllTrails. I am not deterred though despite some frustration... this place is too great for that. I’ll be back again, and next time I’ll be sure I have a paper map and will keep my phone in my pack. Can’t wait to come back!!

Great trails with several water falls!

Amazing bike ride. I will say that the route for the 11.2 mile loop is not well marked. I would like to see Alltrails add it to their list of options. I will go back now that I have the app on my phone and familiarize myself with the 5.8mile loop then try the 11.2 later. The downhill portion is a lot of fun...be careful with a lot of leaves and debris on the road that you pay attention!!!! Enjoy

Nice. More a proved path than a trail, but green with bridges and a creek.

Enjoyed the loop trail. Plenty to see and explore. Love the educational boards. Will be doing this again with the family.

Great hike, moderate inclines, be sure to bring water! Stopped towards the end on a secluded bench to have a picnic lunch!

Awesome hiking trail. Do the whole thing and it’s a great workout!

Great trail for paved running with a stroller. The hills with a stroller were a good challenge

I had no idea we’d see so many waterfalls along one trail. Really scenic and easy. Even the lower trail and offshoots we’re too difficult with a pole.

An enjoyable trail run that turned into a hike. I went after office hours on a weekday and saw appx 6 people on trail.

Really enjoyed it. Took 2 of the alternate trails as well and they wound down by the water. it added some complexity but also some distance and really nice views. The waterfall is really something.

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.

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.

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.
