Great trail. Wife and I enjoyed very much. Only recommendation is the Rocky Trail, white colored tree markers need repainted badly. Got lost off trail a couple times but will definitely be back regardless.

Could use a freshening up on the markers. I did this at night so that was some of the problem. Really wouldn’t say this was an easy trail. Can’t wait to see it in the daylight!

the day was too humid to really enjoy, but the trail is well marked and is relaxing once you can escape the flood of people at the front. the rocky trail part was challenging due to the up and down nature of it. my Fitbit thought I had done 36 flights of stairs!

Had a great time we were

I know a lot of people love this trail, and honestly I hate rating trails bad because I know there’s always a lot at play, but I can genuinely say this is just not a good trail. Views are very mediocre, trail is terribly wonky and poorly marked, and it’s very crowded. So I know a lot of people like it, but if you are like me and carry a camera and huge backpack, just avoid this place. I took no pictures and I got stared at strangely by the hundreds of tweens walking this trail to try and find a place to “hang out” away from mom and dad.

Very pretty in places, need to get on to riverwalk or valley view to obtain some solitude. One turn is easy to miss and you end up on private property, but signs tell you quickly and well marked on the turnaround. Today was too muggy to enjoy it though.

Overall, good hike. Only thing like it in the Boro. The main trail - Marshall Knobbs - is less than 3 miles... you have to take BOTH side trails; Valley View and Rocky Path - to get it over 4- close to 5.

Great trail. Went the day after a rain, a few wet spots and a lot of the trail is limestone slabs so they were a little slippery but enjoyed it immensely.

Hiked this entire loop counterclockwise. River was gorgeous and shallow enough to wide to the opposite side for a hammock nap! Valley View trail was the typical walk in the woods. After a wrong turn we ended up cliff side US-231. My favorite on this loop was the Rocky Path trail, appropriately named. Most challenging and fun part of the hike. Much like a typical South Cumberland trail.
Would highly recommend this trail if you’re in the area. After a couple wrong turns we clocked 5.51 miles. Nice way to spend a Saturday afternoon!

Great hike. Make sure to take the Rocky Path for more of a challenge.

Great trail that I would rate as intermediate. Some of the Rocky Path section were a little above beginner.
I will make this hike again!

Love it. The first part about 0.8 mile reminds me Charlies bunion via AT.

It’s a great trail to walk/hike.

Our favorite trail with the dogs! Right now, the foliage has really grown up (no kidding, 4ft tall in some areas). Get ready for a good sweat and hike!

If you are a first time visitor this isn’t a designed single loop, it’s connecting a couple trails to make a loop. From the nature center building go right for stream / river first or left for rock formations first. If you go right the trail goes Red-Blue-White-Red as the color to follow. Basically stay to the right at all forks.

This trail is perfect for light to moderate exercising. Our dog loves it. We came here for light training a few times for a one night hiking/camping trip the following week.

Great differing trails, good beginner trail with some nice views for vets.

Some muddy spots from a previous rain, but otherwise it was a great hike.

Great place for a hike with kids.

Good hike. Kinda rugged. Dirt paths may not be suitable for young kids.

Rocky path in parts. great trail!

This was a fun hike, but I feel like the easy rating is a bit misleading. I took my dogs and there were several times where you had to jump from one rock to another and my boxer was not a fan! At one point I had to climb in the space between the rocks and lift him over because he absolutely refused to jump the space on his own.

For a local park, it's a great place to hike with the pups. Also fun for a trail run...

Be ready for rock hopping with interesting rock formations. Would call this hike a little more demanding than easy due to having to jump gaps.

Nice local easy day trail. Not much to see besides a nice stream. Average day hike. Well maintained.

This is a fun, interesting loop trail with woods, a stream, lots of rock formations and a few sinkholes. We hiked it in December; I can imagine it would be extra pretty in Spring.

Nice and easy trail. Everyone we met was really nice

Great views !! Amazing little gem in the middle of Murfreesboro. What a fabulous park. Trail easy and well marked
