This trail extends off the Volunteer Trail at Long Hunter State Park near Nashville, TN. From about the midway point on the Volunteer loop the trail leaves the loop to follow the shore of Percy Priest lake to two campsites. A nice hike with a destination for lunch or a close to home overnight.

Nice lake views! People were having sex in a hammock. It was loud. I think she came too. Great trail!

Nice loop. Dog friendly. For in city, is nice and clean. Either way you go at the fork is easy, but I feel left is easier. Mostly shaded, and on a cool enough day, you could get away with no water. In the 70's today, and if not for the dog, I'd have been fine without.

Day loop trail was lovely and moderate as advertised. Beautiful moss covered rocks and some nice roots and rocks to hike on along the trail. Great view of beautiful lake 80% of trail.

Great trail. Although stepped in a disgusting gift from a dog at the trailhead. Trail takes you along the lake and past "party cove". Great views. Fun terrain. Lots of other walkers but not so many you feel crowded. Great parking at trailhead. I would recommend as a fun weekend trail.

very easy trail and the best of all the long hunter state park trails

Easy hike, good for experiencing nature without going too far out of the way. The cliffs overlooking the lake allow for some nice vantage points; however, there are long stretches of flat, wooded trail where there's not much to see. Overall, okay, but wouldn't call it a must-do.

Short distance hike that offers great views of the lake along the bluffs. Trail was well marked and more easy than moderate. There were very little people on the trail so it made for a nice pace.

This trail offered a great way to spend an afternoon. The bluffs offered gorgeous views of the lake. The trail is easy enough & is well marked.

Not a bad hike. Pretty scenery. Really don't think it's a moderate hike, more like easy+. Lol Saw 2 ringneck snakes on the trail (as well as a lot of dog poo), so watch where you step. Overall a decent Trail, although a little crowded.

I thought this was a good trail and enjoyable way to spend the afternoon. New time, I will bring my fishing pole and fish some from the bank and in the coves towards the end of the trail.

Great trail. Can be challenging in certain areas, but beautiful views and a good work out. Gets busy in the afternoon.

Did the day loop and about 1 mile of the overnight trail. Beautiful views of Percy Priest Lake. Some 40-60 ft. bluffs, depending on the time of year, provide really nice views. Get there early the parking lot fills up fast!

Great walk in the woods. Very shady. A bit busy but otherwise very nice.

Close to all in Mt Juliet. One of the best in terrain. Good elevations and a trail that follows along the lake shore offering excellent vistas. I see deer many times each month. Busy on the weekends but still plenty of breathing space.

I would call this easy other than some rocky spots where the footing isn't great. It is mostly flat, and has some good views.

Very nice hike. I would say it's a moderate, lots of roots and rocks to climb over. Quite busy on a Sunday morning with other hikers and backpackers. Very pretty views of the lake but was pretty noisy with boaters.
Probably would be more enjoyable on a weekday when it would be quieter and less traveled. Be sure to take a walking pole. Would definitely do this trail again.
