    If you want a nice quick hike in great scenery or looking for a slew of great watering holes, this is your spot.

    over 3 years ago

    A much needed respite after foot crunching over the sea of rocks along the Gizzard. IAnd like many have said, a good way to return to the parking lot if you need to move quickly. If you want to go to Ravens Point, this is the easier way for sure.

    over 3 years ago

    This is a great track worth exploring. We started on the side opposite of Foster Falls. First of all, the first .5 miles goes through an incredible gorge full of waterfalls and swimming holes. If you are going to continue on Gizzard after the Dog Hole turn off, be prepared for a rocky ride. I wore boots and was glad I did. There are long stretches of medium sized rock that you have to traverse while keeping your balance. Sort of fun for a mile, then got old. Also, be prepared for the final incline leading up to Raven's Point, which is a gasser for sure. We are in decent shape and we were pretty damn tired. However, once you are up by Raven's Point, you will see why its well worth it. Great vistas and look outs. I would recommend shooting up the Dog Hole trail for an easier way up to Raven's Point. Anyhow, great spot. Definitely check it out.

    This was a nice quick getaway from Nashville. The trail was almost empty for the three hours we were there (a late Friday morning) which made it feel more remote. The views were great and plenty of places to stop and take it all in. There was a 3 foot snake on the trail atone point and an 8 point buck deer on the Day Loop piece of the trial. One small annoyance (with fellow man more than anything) was the trash on the trail near one of the spots close to the water.

    As K.D. said, take the grass and dirt paths around the park and you will be rewarded. Currently, on a great side track called Ecology Trail (or Loop), you can walk along a sea of wildflowers. I posted a photo.

    Its definitely a Nashville jewel.

    Chad Shannon reviewed Tom Dick and Harry Mountain Trail

    As far as hikes go, this one isn't so much incredible for the journey itself but the end of the trek. The views are outstanding, if not inspiring. Not to say you don't get to see some great terrain changes along the way, its just mostly an uphill climb. Once you get to the top, it flattens out and you feel like you have reached a land where you could set up a tent and live for awhile. Then, you get to the top and the 360 views say it all.

    Great little hike to do near Tom, Dick and Harry. Took a little swim in here. It was August so very refreshing! Take the time to hike T, D, & H as well.

    I agree with Jessie Jahne. This is a pleasant walk. And couldn't agree more that the towering pines were the best part. We considered taking a break to just lay down in them. A ton of options on how you complete your own track but cant go wrong. Plus, its less than an hour from Nashville.

    More of a brisk walk than a hike. However, it is a great quick respite from Nashville. In the first few miles we saw an owl, deer and more butterflies than can be counted. Takes you through some nice varying terrain and was almost empty for the 4 hours we were there.

    Went for a run here in my early 20's. It was one of the most exhilarating outdoor activities I have ever had. The weather was perfect and the views limitless.
