Very nice trail with about half along th shoreline. Pretty clean and not overly trafficked on a Sunday afternoon. This would be really nice in the off season.

My new favorite trail! It starts out easy but gets very difficult as you go along. Great Shady Trail!

Very pretty! Energy from this trail was very pleasant! Only thing I’d change is where the trail goes behind the campground but that’s just me!!

Very sweet trail. We saw cows, ducks, turtles and deer. The woods were different from other areas Ive been around Nashville. It was kind of jungle like with lots of climbing vines. We saw a few wildflowers and different mushrooms as well. I will definitely come back.

One of our favorites! A bit muddy but nice shady trail with lake access and wildlife. Nice to see families out together. Hike clockwise to get the "hard" part over with.

Lots of trail markers on the natural paths. It was a busy day, but not enough to drown out the songs of the birds. We saw a few deer, a snake almost took command of the trail near the lake and sunbathing turtles. A nice day overall!

Enjoyed this easy hike and so did my dogs. What was really nice is that a lot of the trails were shaded which is great for boxers. Went right as the park open and there was little traffic. A few places on the Shoreline trail were muddy but really not bad (my shoes are fine and so are the dogs paws). We will do this one again.

BACK OPEN!!! This is a nice trail that follows the shore. Just a section of stairs that can be a little strenuous. Some muddy spots but nothing that cant be walked around.

Enjoyable trail. Easy access. But had to go off trail more than a few times due to mud and flooding.

Great beginner and family friendly trail with nice views of the lake! Easy access across the street from the parking lot. Follow path clockwise once you reach the top of the hill across from the parking area!

Had to walk around trail, because trail was flooded. Couldn’t even find half of the trail. Other than that, it was beautiful.
