    Ryan McMahon reviewed Mossy Ridge Trail

    about 1 year ago

    Vetoed terrain, but maintained well enough to run. About 3-4 serious hills. No breathtaking views, but pretty high quality for city trails. Not too packed most of the time, but can get a little busy on temperate weekends. You may get a couple dirty looks if your dog is off leash, but by and large most people are pretty cool. Connects to the Bellevue Greenway and can all together provide 26.2+ miles of connected dirt/paved trails.

    Not terribly challenging. Relatively well maintained trails. Lake is nice, but not breathtaking views. I did it as a hike but would actually probably make a pretty good trail to run.

    Depends on what you're looking for. After sitting in Brentwood traffic, then further doing three loops of the parking lot to find a space, my dog and I see a giant sign letting us know dogs aren't invited. Already investing that amount of time, I decided to run the quickest route by the lake, to the top of the road (which dogs are allowed to walk on). Boy was I wrong. The number of dirty looks (see lady in picture) and people telling me I'd get fined was amazing, and over seriously 10 minutes. I recognize I was the one breaking the rules and that some people don't like dogs, but you know what, I don't like little kids. Does that mean we should have parks where little kids aren't allowed? No, that's crazy.
    As for the park itself, while beautiful, this is sterile nature. Trails are lined with wooden planks, wood chips cover walking paths, and elevation is absolutely minimal (some side trails, also not dog friendly, offer a LITTLE more challenge). If you want to take your mom for a stroll, come here. If you want outdoor adventure or exercise, probably head somewhere else.
    I promise I won't bring my dog back...

    Ryan McMahon reviewed Sewanee Perimeter Trail

    Pretty nice trail, and credit to the city for doing something like this. Drove out from Nashville for a day trip and well worth it. The upper 2/3 are real trails, while the bottom third appeared to be greenways, so we did the upper and cut across the beautiful Sewanee campus back to the car. The trail itself was well maintained and and minimally used past the entrances. I passed mostly bikers, and while I was hiking it with a dog, kept thinking that the lack of rocks and mild elevation would make this a trail runners dream. I personally could have used a little more elevation challenge, but the many creeks and beautiful views of both Middle TN farmland and East TN Smokey Mountains more than made up for it.

    Really enjoyed the trail. Sparsely populated enough to let the dog run. Lots of challenging climbs but well maintained trails. No breathtaking views, but a couple nice places along the way to stop for a lunch break. Probably a little tough for little kids, but a fun workout otherwise.

    Ok, so the other reviews weren't lying, but it all depends on what you're looking for. This trail is rough, can get muddy with horse tracks, and has enough elevation to keep you huffing. All of those things I like. What was a pain at times was following the markings and staying on path. A couple more paint marks would have saved a lot of time and climbing/backtracking. Phone service is super spotty, so I'd recommend taking a map and knowing how to navigate. The path back goes along a road, but even that is really challenging with the elevation. Wouldn't take kids or old/fat dogs, but my Weimaraner and I had a challenging adventure with great views.

    1/3 dirt road, 1/3 well maintained, 1/3 covered in leaves. Wouldn't complain if there weren't so many roots and rocks hidden under. Relatively nice scenery. Not too much challenge from an elevation standpoint. Went on a nice Friday with the dog and saw maybe two other people.
