Getting There

A quick double-balloon loop on the outskirts of Belleview, with a small lake as the payoff. Starts out in an open field, winds it's way into the woods along a creek. Once into the woods, take the left fork in the trail (there's a sign) to get where you can actually touch the water (most of the lake is surrounded by high limestone bluffs). After dipping your toes in, there's a quick steep scramble up to cliffs with excellent views of the water below. At the far end of the lake, almost exactly halfway through the hike, there is a bench that overlooks the whole thing--very nice. After that, the trail branches off--the far left will give you the most distance, but the right trail will go up a bit higher and has better scenery. You'll eventually get back to the trail junction and retrace your original steps back to the open field. The 'bluebird loop' is just a different walk around the same field, but gets you back to the parking area.

Gravel parking lot, trash cans, one picnic table near the trailhead. Didn't see any restroom facilities in the area.

I-40 west of Nashville, take the McCrory Lane exit, go north not quite a full mile, and cross the Harpeth River bridge. The parking lot and trailhead are immediately after the bridge on the left.

This loop always rejuvenates the soul. Offers beautiful views, natures many contrasts, and a slice of history. Everytime we leave, it seems like there's still more. So we go back.

HikingGreat!Off trailScramble

Fun trail to explore, especially with kids as there are lots of side trails, rocks to climb, old outbuildings to investigate, and a varied terrain of a ridge Loop as well as riverside and meadow loops. Fun for people with dogs as well with both lake and river access for water lovers. In fact there is kayak/canoe access to the Harper River not far from the parking lot.

Not as muddy as I expected it to be after all the rain we’ve had these last few weeks!

Loved this trail! Two hidden lakes, go down the hidden paths, so worth the views.

Very nice hike. Different terrains and lots of look outs. Ended up being a little over two miles but nothing crazy.

Nice trail - it definitely has gotten more traffic the past few months than a few years ago.

HikingGreat!

Wonderful, short trail with many beautiful vistas. If you hit the hidden lake trail on the way in you skip most of the steep ascents.

I wouldn’t recommend a stroller, next time we will piggyback or get a carrier.

we went off the trail a bit but it was always easy to come back to. pretty crowded but plenty of places to veer off and enjoy the views while letting large groups get ahead
