What a beautiful hike in Nashville’s backyard!! Took my kids out there today (11 and 8) and they were able to do the Henry Hollow Loop and the Sedge Hill trail. There are some pretty good inclines, the trails are well kept, and are well marked with blazes and signs. Will do this one again.

Nice trial with a bit of an incline; runs alongside a pretty creek. The image on AllTrails of the small waterfall that appears as the image for this trail isn’t actually on this hike. It appears to be across the road from the trail head, marked as private property-no trespassing.

It was a decent trail, nothing to write home about though. My only complaint about the trail was the number of ppl letting there dogs off leash. I’m actually all for it but not when a trail is popular and populated. Not everyone is a dog fan. I had my dog with me. He’s great with ppl and some dogs but on leash, he’s not so great with dogs. So when these ppl had there 3 dogs off leash, they said “it’s ok, they are nice”, I had to say “that’s nice, my dog isn’t”. Just follow the rules ppl.

DO NOT leave anything in your car while you are hiking! We came back to the parking lot to find 2 cars broken into and one was ours. Luckily I read some other reviews of this trail stating cars had been vandalized and we took our belongings with us but windows were still shattered. HIKERS BEWARE! The trails were beautiful so sad that others had to ruin our day!

We went to hike the Henry Hollow Loop Trail and when we got to the trailhead there was a Jeep that had just been broken into! We decided to turn around. Be careful!

Nice wooded & steam views. Recommend you go clockwise or the uphill will be at the end.

This trail was absolutely beautiful. It was a great hike with lots of nature. I very much enjoyed the creek and water pools.

so beautiful a Trail great wildflowers in the spring when a dogwood and red buds are in bloom it's amazing it can be a little wet on the feet on the low end of the trail so boots would be good idea. easy walking if you park at the bottom there's some nice picnic tables at the top you can stop at and take a break enjoy your hike

Nice little loop that connects to a longer out and back that makes for a nice, quick day hike. No views or special features, just a short and sweet wooded trail.

This was a fun little trail. The creek is pretty and there is a lot to look at. There's one decent uphill section, but overall, the trail was fairly easy. Definitely will be going back to see how it looks in other seasons!

This trail has some nice, peaceful scenery and connects to two other trails for a possible 6 mile hike. It's a nice little hike. Light traffic.

This was a great easy-moderate hike for me and my pup! We will definitely be back!

Beautiful creek, wild life (saw squirrels, birds, lizards, fish and deer). The paths are easy to follow and there's not many people there. It's peaceful and quiet. Spent a few hours there, it's worth a visit.

Peaceful and relatively quiet trail just north of Nashville. A work day unwind favorite.

Nice trail. Hiked with my wife and our 5 kids ages 10, 8, 5, and 3 (twins). Saw no one else. Lots of rocks and roots were obstacles for the littlest ones, and after about an hour of carrying my daughter my barefoot trail Merrells were feeling like the wrong shoes. Nice open woodland; not very strenuous but able to work up a sweat. Enjoyed it but next time I'll wear my old Vasque Sundowners.

great trail, not super busy, elevation changes can be challenging but not bad. A lot of water access which is really cool.

A refreshing walk through the woods- it was a short steady walk, perfect for our dog!

Beautiful late fall day for a hike on #OptOutside day. There were a lot of people taking advantage of the pretty day. I took my wife and three kids and we all enjoyed the trail. It was a bit more hilly than I anticipated but it is a nice, well marked trail. The Nature Center was closed so I will go back when it is open and maybe do the longer trail.
