Short, but very pretty view!

From the Harris Street Bridge parking area, I hiked the trails leading from the trailhead to the historic water tunnel with great views of the river on the right and huge rocky bluffs on the left, and followed it back to a junction for the main path to ascend the steep staircase to the overlook. The views from the bluff make this trail one of the most scenic trails near Nashville. This was a moderate hike for a beginner like me with the steep climbs totaling about 1.8 miles and took me roughly an hour to complete.

Very short but really three options for hikes, one that’s rather steep but takes you to a breathtaking overlook of the river gorge and countryside. Great if you have an hour or two, before river activities.

Surprisingly short and steep, with a remarkable view of the Harpeth River. imho it's too easily accessible. Would do it again if in the area.

This short trail is so relaxing and has wonderful views at highest elevation.

Beautiful views. Great for kids.

Awesome. Hiked it twice this year and plan to again. has stairs with good amount of incline. has an amazing overlook with a great rock to take a picture on. really short so not intense for long.

Beautiful, marked well, great trail for the whole family, dogs allowed (leashed)

Wow. I loved this place. You can actually go along technically 3 trails if you park at a certain parking lot. You can go down a historical tunnel which will lead you to the watering hole with the waterfall which is very pretty. You can also go along another one that doesnt have a name that I say which leads along the cliff and its gorgeous. The last one you will have to go up a steep area and continue walking up and will get breathtaking views over the river and land. I loved it! I cant wait to bring my partner over to this area when they have time off. They thought it was gorgeous from the photos I was sending them.

Beautiful outlooks! Not the longest trails, but a great mini hike not far from I-40

I’ve done this hike a few times and it’s always fun. Easy enough for almost anyone, pretty short and high reward. I love going each season to see the changes! And swim in the Harpeth when it’s warm....

A very pleasant walk. A great walk to see the beauty of nature.

Nice gem off 40. I wanted to get a little movement in before the drive back to Memphis from Nashville. There’s more than just the out and back here. Be sure to check out the historic tunnel as well as the narrows. The springtime flowers were beautiful and the trail is very well maintained.

Pretty, short, steep, narrow, fun!

Really loved this hike.
great for pets

This one was a bit underwhelming. The views of the river and surrounding landscape are limited until you approach the top of the bluff, and then the trail abruptly ends at a "no trespassing" sign. The views from the top are good, but not great. There are multiple homes or other buildings within view no matter which direction you look.

Beautiful hike! Make sure to climb up the overlook trail, it’s a magnificent view!!

Great little trail for when you want to feel like you’re not in Nashville without having to drive very far. We always take our GSD and he loves it. Great swimming hole for him.

Great views no matter what time of the year . Even for such a small park and from what I’ve been told great for kayaking too .

Cool view but was not an overall great experience. Very narrow trail and is not clearly marked.

A nice easy hike not too far out of Nashville. Leads up to a beautiful vantage point over the Harpeth River. Good for the novice hiker or someone on a tight schedule, but otherwise, too short and not challenging enough to be really worth it.

The trails are well maintained and very beautiful here.

Great little dual trail with both a fantastic view and cute little waterfall/cave exploration. Heavily trafficked, park closes at 7. We went right at 6 and hit the sweet spot for lack of crowds. Although the trail is short, the walk up to the bluffs is pretty steep.

Enjoyable hike
