Beaman Park may really be the crown jewel of Nashville's park system as the scenery is just as beautiful as Edwin Warner Park but without all the people and road noise. The creek on the left at the beginning affords many stunning views. The series of switchbacks up the steep hill are easy to navigate as a single-track footpath, and when you get to the top, there are lovely views of the deep ravines below. The last half of the trail descending down the steep hills actually took me slightly longer than climbing them!

Great little stretch! Adds an extra couple of miles to the beaman loop

Nice hike! Loved the creek! Great ridge! 3 of us and the dog.

Trail is nice. Love the incline at the beginning, but the last time I went was a few years ago and my car was broken into, window shattered, purse was taken (it was hidden), and everything they didn't want to keep was strewn across the road near the park

great little hike for something quick. There wasn't anything amazing to look at but the trail was nice and definitely gets you in nature. only real down fall was that the trail gets super narrow in places and becomes difficult when passing runners and other dog owners. It is an incline pretty much the whole way so if you dont like up hill hikes I wouldn't recommend it.

Seriously, Dave. Checked.

Nothing too exciting, but a mostly easy hike after an easy drive works for me. Any time in the woods is a good time in my book. It's also quite shaded so a good option to still get a hike in on an otherwise hot day.

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.

Great trail! Smooth trails, well marked, not crowded at all!

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

great elevation. it is winding. it is narrow so can't walk side by side with a friend. saw some frogs. leads to a circle of wooden benches.

I run here about 2-3 times every week, and it's a perfect "loop" (you can make it 6.5 miles) for an evening run after work. Super well marked, and the facilities at the trailhead are a great touch (especially stretching on the porch after a run).

This is one of my very favorite hikes near Nashville! There are a LOT of ticks there right now though. Put on some repellant and make sure your dogs are on tick meds before you go!

Awesome primitive trail and very well marked.

What a beautiful hike in Nashville’s backyard!! Took my kids out there today (11 and 8) and they were able to do the Henry Hollow Loop and the Sedge Hill trail. There are some pretty good inclines, the trails are well kept, and are well marked with blazes and signs. Will do this one again.

Good spot, came on a rainy day. Good facilities with bathroom at the nature center. You get good elevation in some spots. It's good woods running, but few outlook points. Will absolutely be coming back for more training!

Nice trial with a bit of an incline; runs alongside a pretty creek. The image on AllTrails of the small waterfall that appears as the image for this trail isn’t actually on this hike. It appears to be across the road from the trail head, marked as private property-no trespassing.

Perfect long hike outside of town. Next time I will bring lunch and eat at a picnic table at the second trail head/parking lot. Was there on a Saturday and plenty of parking/not crowded. FYI The only toilet I found there was located at the first trailhead when you come off that main road .

the loop was the best part, probably wouldn't do the Ridgeline trail portion again as it was pretty flat and boring towards the end.

Nice day hike.

Will do it again. Enjoyed the ability to choose multiple trails of varying lengths. Trails very well maintained.

This is a beautiful and quiet trail that's well maintained.

Nice little loop, great for pets aswell.

It was a decent trail, nothing to write home about though. My only complaint about the trail was the number of ppl letting there dogs off leash. I’m actually all for it but not when a trail is popular and populated. Not everyone is a dog fan. I had my dog with me. He’s great with ppl and some dogs but on leash, he’s not so great with dogs. So when these ppl had there 3 dogs off leash, they said “it’s ok, they are nice”, I had to say “that’s nice, my dog isn’t”. Just follow the rules ppl.

DO NOT leave anything in your car while you are hiking! We came back to the parking lot to find 2 cars broken into and one was ours. Luckily I read some other reviews of this trail stating cars had been vandalized and we took our belongings with us but windows were still shattered. HIKERS BEWARE! The trails were beautiful so sad that others had to ruin our day!

Great trial for all levels of hikers.

We went to hike the Henry Hollow Loop Trail and when we got to the trailhead there was a Jeep that had just been broken into! We decided to turn around. Be careful!
