Nice trail, well maintained. Good canopy to keep you cool during the hike.

It’s beautiful and the trail is well-maintained. Creekside gets a little muddy but nothing to worry much about.

I guess we missed a bit of the trail that would have accounted for the additional 1/2mile. That aside, it was a beautiful trail. We did the Sedge Trail in the same system a couple weeks ago and had two very different hiking experiences for being so close. This was seemingly less traveled, which I liked. There was a sweet breeze that kept the trees whispering throughout.

GREAT, quick, dog-friendly hike!! Trail follows along a creek bed and then loops back up the hillside to either the Highland Trailhead or the Creekside Trailhead parking lot. Trails are moderately-highly trafficked given it’s close proximity to Nashville. (And currently, because everyone is on “lockdown” for COVID-19). Will be back to hike the Ridgetop Trail.

Always a good hike. Doesn't consume an entire day. The hills get my heart rate up without being impossible.

Great quick loop. Took the dog. Elevation gain was very gradual. Nice and relaxing. The stream is nice and relaxing. Curious to see how the foliage chages the hike in the summer. Some areas are a little narrow and some are on a slight slope. That would make this a moderate coupled with the water that runs through it. It is not strenuous though.

Great trail, not very crowded. Was muddy in several spots right after a rain storm. half the trail runs along a creek which our dog loved. Plenty of shade and very even throughout. Slight elevation gain but almost unnoticeable. would recommend for starters and experienced. Would do this trail again.

A little soggy from the weeks of rain but otherwise a good trail for me and my dog.

The trail is well marked and well maintained. Super dog friendly, lots of pups off leash. This place is CROWDED. So much so I cut my walk short and left. If you don’t mind a bunch of people along the path, it’s a nice walk- not worth it to me.

Fantastic trail that follows the river and climbs a ridge to provide you with panoramic views. Good for birdwatching. Beware of ice during the winter—a few spots on the trail were slick from spring water that ran over the path and froze solid overnight.

Nice little trail for the dog and me.

Went after a days rain, little muddy but that’s no problem with a good pair of hiking boots. Beautiful trail, very secluded, walked the dog off leash the entire time.

Very nice trail system with a few different access points and a nature center with a nice covered outside porch. The whole system measured out at 6.8 miles for me and should all be rated as easy. There are various recordings here, mine is the whole system including the loop, the lead to the nature center, and the ridge trail taking the “shortcut” trail on the way back.

Great trail.. hardly anyone on it. Would make an excellent trail for running.

First time walking the trail. The first mile was mostly at an incline which I need! Very quiet with just a few people on the trail. I will definitely go back! I will say that some of the trail is very narrow but it’s a natural trail so....!

I would absolutely recommend this trail! It offers more incline than other trails in the area and provides beautiful surroundings. It was incredibly quiet with only 2 cars in the parking lot when I arrived. Definitely a perfect place to go in the fall to see the leaves change!

A little challenging, very dynamic and good views! Crossed the path of very few hikers—just like I like it :)

very well marked, easy trail with some elevation. Pretty views of the creek at the start of the trail.

Quite beautiful! A few gorgeous nooks and crannies at the start of the trail followed by a moderate hike with a nice uphill and downhill workout. We did the whole loop in 45 minutes making for a perfect after work hike.

Easy trail, kids and dogs would be fine. The trail system is very well marked. There isn’t much interest (besides pretty TN woods) once you turn away from the creek. But the creek portion is peaceful, pretty, and pleasant. Small fry fish, snails, and crawdads in the shallow water would be fun for kids. Lots of flat stones for skipping, too. We went in early Feb. on a partly cloudy day, 71 degrees, and it was ideal. It’s close to Nashville so it was great for an unplanned and spur of the moment hike. It took a couple tries to find the entrance using maps app. If you’re on little marrowbone road you’ll see stone pillars that mark the entrance. Enter and make a direct left and you’re in the parking lot.

We did Ridgetop and Henry Hollow. The trails were beautiful and well marked but it turns out the area isn't safe at all! I didn't see the reviews about this but we saw what we thought was car window glass near 2 parking spaces when we first got there. The suspension was confirmed when we got back and saw that another couple's car had been broken into. That means at least 3 cars have been broken into recently. We're just blessed it wasn't ours. If you go to Beaman don't leave anything of value in your car! A broken window is bad enough without having something stolen.

Great views and very quiet on a mid-fall afternoon.

Beaman Park may really be the crown jewel of Nashville's park system as the scenery is just as beautiful as Edwin Warner Park but without all the people and road noise. The creek on the left at the beginning affords many stunning views. The series of switchbacks up the steep hill are easy to navigate as a single-track footpath, and when you get to the top, there are lovely views of the deep ravines below. The last half of the trail descending down the steep hills actually took me slightly longer than climbing them!
