Nice, flat trail for a decently long hike close to the city. Not really much scenery or views of the lake but there are a few small streams and the area seems nice. Would honestly be a pretty cool bike trail but no bikes and no pets allowed. The trailhead is also right beside a small playground and a wide view of the lake which gives more options for families.

Good for a dog walk, easy loop with beach to explore. No connecting trails within easy distance to connect to. Nice first day enjoying the sun!

February walking adventure. We had a 60+* day, so we decided to explore Jones Mill. We did the entire trail. Has some rocky spots, a little bit of mud, some slopes, nothing overwhelming. We walked it, but you can bike it as well. Should be better in Spring and Summer when things are green. We enjoyed our day in a Tennessee State Park.

Beautiful and short, flat little trail. Trailhead right next to the ranger station which is closed til March but the bathrooms are open (and they are really nice!). Was here at 1030am on Sat Feb 2, temps 50s-60F. Some nice variety with grassy meadows, trees and access to the lake. Only ran into 2 other people and took about 40 minutes. There is a good bit of road noise from Hobson pike, and it's close enough to see cars at times. But I could still hear a lot of birds. I did lose the trail coming back from the lake, as it was buried under leaves and no signs. So I just turned around and went back the way I came. Great little trail, and closest to the entrance of the state park. Will definitely return!

Great hike! It made for a wonderful Sunday afternoon. One frustration was the people who walked with their dogs off leash. So if you have a dog that does not like other dogs, be aware that these off leash dogs could be a problem for you.

Perfect trail for an easy weekend hike. Runs along the lake and has some great views. Can get crowded at times but nothing too bad.

Nice views of the lake!

Calling this moderate difficulty is a bit of a stretch. The lake views are nice and its a good hike but just not terribly exciting. It's pretty muddy too.

I really enjoy the great views and proximity to the water along parts of the trail.

Lovely little paved walking trail. Quick, flat 2 mi loop with pretty view of the lake the whole time. Good for kids, strollers. No dogs.

very fun trail, just the right distance and difficulty for a short hike/run. beautiful along the lakeside and interesting rock formations along the way.

This is the probably the easiest mountain biking trail in the Nashville area but it’s also one of the most scenic. Really beautiful dense forest sections and some great views of Percy Priest. Also I believe if you do the longest loop (follow the Orange markers) it is closer to 6 miles. It’s pretty flat, so you can knock out this pretty trail in under an hour pretty easily which is a plus when you are as busy as I am.

Very nice Christmas Day walk. Lots of people saying, “Merry Christmas!”. Good, paved trail; flat and smooth. The trees are beautiful, saw lots of deer, and the water was quite low. There is a magnificent circular rock formation, obviously created by a meteor slamming into bedrock over rushing water. You can clearly see where the stones, weathered by running water, were flipped upside down in a blast radius pattern. Absolutely fascinating. Great, leisurely walk.

Nothing interesting and muddy in many spots

Cute trail, but it’s been marked no dogs

Great groves of hickory, oak, and maple. Undergrowth has tons of dogwood, redbuds, and sassafras.

like others have said it can get a bit muddy here but great trail with some cool rock bluffs near the lake good for a rest and view.

Decent when we went. Trail can get muddy and flood during heavy rains in the fall with all the leaves.

mostly an easy trail, but we made the mistake of going when it was stormy, which led to a bunch of mud and puddles. super good views though!

Great 4 mile trail with lots of water access. If it’s muddy, certain spots get slick. But overall fantastic.

Great trail. The lakeside views are great in the winter.

One of my favorites especially in the fall when the leaves turn. The lake views are a bonus!

My wife and I enjoyed our first day hike on the trail! Our German Shepard was welcomed by other hikers and make it very welcoming. We only live a couples away but hadn’t been here before but will definitely be back over and over.

I didn't care for the trail. Too narrow of a trail, either pulling my dog behind me or he is pulling me out front. The gravel and bigger rocks were clunky and somewhat annoying. The trail meanders sometimes close to the lake, but then immediately takes you away from it. Just a couple of nice views, but other than that a fairly uninteresting hike.

Easy walk and pretty view.

Nice trail with plenty of deep wooded features. If you are a nature lover you will love this trail. Lots of wildlife along the way, today.
