The Warner Park system is such a gem. We started right at the trail from the Vaughn Rd side and its basically a 450 foot climb over about half a mile. The rest of the trail is pretty simple but really nice short walk in the woods.
Visited on spring break and it was crowded! Lots of people and lots of dogs. Trail was damp but not too muddy. TAKE NOTICE--- visitor center is closed on Sunday's and there are NO MAPS available outside the center. There are numbered points of that interest around the park and without a map it is difficult to know what they mean. Maybe there's an online version I didn't find. We're glad we came today!!
Nice hike around the hills for our first time to Tennessee. Some good views towards the top!
I've hiked this trail more than any other trail. It's a fun, fairly quick trail with a lot of natural beauty. No great views, but a nice getaway in a large metro area. There's one nice hill that will give you a little cardio. The one drawback is it is a very highly-trafficked trail. Don't expect to get that great isolated feeling that you'll get from more out of the way locations.
Pretty but much shorter than anticipated
