MBSP is better for trail running than hiking. For a hike, driving this far out of Nashville I would have preferred less disturbances from trash, construction noise, lawn mowers, golf carts and passing motorists. Not many views to make up for lack of wilderness feel. I do love being on the trail but if I come back it'll only be for a run.

First ran the trail network at Montgomery Bell when participating in the Bell Ringer 50K trail run. Beautiful scenery and great terrain, definitely a place I will be running again!

I've hiking this trail a few times now and it's really not that bad. The hills can be a bit exhausting but honestly that's every hill. It's an amazing trail nonetheless. Beautiful wilderness. Wildlife every where. Can even begin to explain how many deer I've actually encountered on this trail. Absolutely beautiful and worth the hike.

This is my stomping grounds .i love this trail .. It is as basic as a trail gets in Tennessee.. I would say it has moderate climbs up and down and the trail is well kept . Its plenty easy to get it done in a day trip for most any hikers at any level . I like to stay at the shelters along the trail often at night . They are as good as Iv see shelters on most park trails .nicer than most . They are grate for small group wanting to camp away from the camper area camping . Nice park and a nice trail .
