It’s a nice and easy walk. My biggest complaint is that there is dog poop everywhere.

Beautiful trail. Not many people out. Definitely follow the map since the signs aren’t well labeled.

Awesome hike. Mostly flat and well kept with a few mud pits to walk around. The signage needs to be updated, we followed the wrong fork about half a mile only to have to turn around and retrace our path due to wear and tear on the trail markers. Other than that, very peaceful and low traffic.

Signs are unhelpful, so make sure to watch your progress on the map. The given "trail" is not very descriptive and there are many extra loops and off branches to choose from if you'd like. Very little cover from trees so it can get a bit cold with the wind and hot in the summer I imagine. Very nice views. If you play Pokemon Go: One Gym at the main outdoor center and only two stops in the entire trail system, come prepared. :)

Probably my fave easy hike in the Nashville area. Recorded my preferred route today, but there’s plenty to explore, so repeated visits are recommended. Pro Tip: if you don’t want to be heckled for wearing a mask, don’t stop at the Trump flag-waving gas station on Old Hickory.

Really pretty grounds but it was so difficult to know where to go. The signage is inadequate. It was a maze! Pretty tho and not busy.

It was a good walk - a step above a paved trail. All grass, no rocks, roots or trees on the path. Like a walk in a pasture.

Fairly flat field walk. Open to sun so summer can be hot . Chiggers like the high grass in summer . Lots of butterflies in late summer and early fall

Easy flat walk through fields of wildflowers. A bit monotonous, but a nice loop.

Open field trail. Not marked the best. Went in the summer and there is not tons of shade. Dogs are allowed, however always check for ticks leaving from there. Found them on me or my dog after every visit.
