Not a huge fan of paved, but before you know it, you’re breaking a sweat. So pretty. Great for bird watching. Shaded.
Last time I was there I saw a car that had been broken into at the Deep Well entrance off TN-100. So hide your valuables.

Love hiking through the woods on unpaved paths. Wait until you see this place in spring & fall.

Very good hike. Did this on a rainy day so there was really no one else around. Quiet and peaceful.

My "Go To" since I reside about 6 miles from the Deep Well Trailhead. Have hiked it since moving to Tennessee in the late 80's... Never gets old....

Update for 1/25/18: A group of us hike this trail fairly regularly and it makes for a great moderate day hike. But this particular trip, there was still a lot of water seeping out of the ground from the recent snow and we encountered a good bit of sticky mud. That made the hike much less enjoyable than normal. Would strongly recommend giving this trail another week for the trail to dry out.

Kinda fun. Got my car broken into. Be careful

If you are looking for a secluded paved walk in the woods with some mileage and exercise benefit, this is about as good as it gets in Nashville.

Its a nice trail and a nice peaceful walk through the woods, however thats all it is. No great views or falls or anything too scenic to see. Can get crowded. Good day hike near the city if youre not looking to travel too far

I love the trail itself, but so many people let their dogs off leash.

Fun little day loop. Enough elevation to challenge your calves but manageable even trail for the most part! Could be sketchy in the rain but on a dry day it’s a beautiful trail.

I used this paved trail to get to another trail I hiked. I started at the deep well parking lot and did not walk the entire loop. What I did walk was beautiful and had steep incline. There were lots of people which made me feel more safe. I will return to hike other trails off this trail!

I love that this trail is available in the city and is part of a system. You could easily stitch together all the Warner Park trails and get around 12 miles of hiking in without ever having to leave the city.

The stairs in the beginning are a killer but it's nice that your vitals level off once you jog it out on the flat right up top.
The nice thing is that you can enter the trail from Deep Well and skip the stairs and have a shortcut available if you ever don't feel up for the full one.

This trail has its ups, its downs, its in-betweens. That is to say it’s not boring. A challenging route for beginner trail runners. If you go right now be careful as the ground is covered with leaves. 

LOTS of leaves covering the trail right now. Moderate traffic on the trail. Water was low on the Spring, which was expected. Great variation in elevation. Several trail runners. Great trail marks. Took us around an hour and 45 minutes to do the entire loop. Bring water. Loved this trail!

New to the area and this was my first trail that I sort of stumbled upon. Was looking for the Chickering Road trailhead entrance when I came across Deep Well Trailhead that leads to this 5.8 mile loop. It was an absolutely GORGEOUS hike with a few steep hills and inclines. Nicely paved trail the entire way and there are other trails that go “off the beaten path” if that’s more of what you prefer. I went on a week day mid morning and saw at least 15-20 others so seems to be a fairly busy trail....which can be refreshing when you’re a solo female hiker like myself. Thoroughly enjoyed this place and will definitely be back.

1st trail running in my life.
Good to start your trail run career at this place!

Great trail that provides a good workout. I went in expecting a 4.5 mile hike, but with the connector trail from the Chickering entrance, my Fitbit registered almost six miles. It took me just over two hours to complete. Consistently hilly with about one pretty challenging climb per mile. The trail is dirt and gravel so I think it could be hazardous on some of the steeper climbs/descents when it’s wet. I would have given it five stars if there had been a great lookout or more wildlife. It’s really just all woods and squirrels. Traffic on the trail was consistent but didn’t feel busy. Overall I found this to be a nice trail to hike and a good workout. I’ll definitely add it into my rotation.
