My favorite trail for a combo hike/trail run. I default here unless the conditions are just too wet and muddy.

One of the more secluded trails I’ve found within Nashville! I ran it today and it turns out there are some rockier parts that I ended up walking just to save my ankles! I’d say it a great lowkey hike that still packs a little bit of incline for a good workout, great to take your dog on, but not the best to run unless you are experienced with running rockier trails! You can end up off trail pretty easily, there are a lot of crossing trails and roads, but luckily it’s all in the park so you can’t get too off path. Really pretty with the leaves changing currently!

Easy trail that me and my kids can hike. Love the slight terrain with clearly marked paths. Lots of people and everyone having a great time outdoors. Love the atmosphere.

It’s an okay hike, good shade, some inclines, but didn’t have any nice views.

A tough, yet manageable trail for new hikers. A quiet escape from the busy city. We even saw a huge owl up close!

Perfect trail if you want something moderately challenging and doable in 1-1.5 hours (depending on your hiking pace). The terrain is varied and scenery beautiful which makes it both interesting to navigate and a great place to decompress. Additionally, the fact that it is in the shade makes it reasonably comfortable even on a hot Tennessee summer day! I always feel like I was challenged just enough without being overly tired by the end.
