Not a good hike. AllTrails states that it's good for hiking, but the trailhead clearly states that hiking is prohibited and that the trail is only to be used by mountain bikers. Since we had already driven here we decided to walk it still, stupidly. It's a very long, boring trail. No destination, nothing to see, and it all looks the same. Save your time and pick another trail. Will say though, trail looks great for mountain bikers.

Are you allowed to trail run here?

This is my favorite trail in the area. First time ridden in 4 years or so but it never disappoints. A little something for everyone on this trail system. Very well maintained.

not bad! i like it because it's a trail in the woods and super close to home. the lake is across the street so refreshing to do that afterwards. had 8 ticks on me afterwards though. mostly a mountain biking trail.

Lots of road noise from the neighboring highway, but it was a beautiful trail and we didn't run into a single person the whole time. (On memorial day weekend, no less!)

Fun trail, somewhat technical.

Would be a really pretty walk, but very difficult to follow trail. A few strange people that did not look like they were there to hike the trail. Saw 2 condom wrappers.

It was very relaxing, very easy flat trails. Few roots and rocks here and there but not difficult at all. Your choice of routes makes it great because you can go 2-5-7 or 11 miles depending on how ambitious you're feeling.

1st time mountain biking. There were definitely some spots I had to pull my bike through/over. Easy to get on the wrong trail

This trail is enjoyable enough, not too difficult. However, most of it runs along the highway, and the traffic drowns out the peaceful nature around you. The length was okay, and better once we cut off the trail and hiked along the lake.

Awesome trail. Love the drops and of course all the rocks. Wear knee pads !!!
Directions around the trail is sketchy. But that's way we have apps to guide us. Maprika works great for me.

needs trail markings, lots of intermingled connections with no direction.. love the rocks and roots though.. with some direction it would be way better..

The Pinnacle Trail and Lakeside Trail are connected under the main highway bipass from one side to the other. This trail is likely a much better biking trail than it is hiking trail, and really that doesn't say much. There are many washed out and eroded rock sections that make it technical and sometimes fun in small doses on a bike, but after 9 miles, it's really just a headache waiting to happen. Scenery is very average, traffic is typically moderate and ease of navigating is fair at best. There are several other MTB trails in the broader Nashville area that are more recommended. This is one that can be plugged in rarely to jog your memory of other better flowing trails. The trail does not dry out well, and can be very slippery and even dangerous within 48 hours of moderate rain.

Rode the beginner/intermediate loop today. Got introduced to what are apparently known as "rock gardens". Very tricky to navigate for a beginner. Some fun quick stretches as well, definitely helped me work on my technical riding! Signs were rare, and there seemed to be a few different ways to go. Missed the exit when I was nearing completion but common sense helped me turn around. Beautiful scenery, lots of switchbacks, and overall a tougher challenge than Jones Mill. Next, to tackle the 7 mile intermediate/advanced loop.

It doesn't have any signs to tell you where to go, so I didn't like it very much because I got lost.

Nice loop mountain bike trail in Nashville, TN. It's about 4 miles long. Lots of rocks and roots. Good work-out. There were several large trees downed when I went so I had to walk my bike over them. The trail blazes / markings are not easy to see. The Lakeside Trail is also called the East Trail. You can add on the West (Pinnacle) Trail and make your ride longer.
