My wife and 2 grown sons hiked this trail in a little over two hours. It's definitely a workout. Quite a few people on the trail but not crowded.

My favorite trail in Nashville! Some good steep hills and I love the distance. If you aren't familiar with hiking here, there are port a potties you can use at trailhead. Always others on this trail but never seems crowded.

Good trail. Well maintained, and not too easy but not too difficult.

This is a great trail for its convenience and general aesthetics. It is well marked once you are on it. It provides a good workout because of the elevation changes but there are enough downhill breaks to keep it enjoyable. It is easier to pick this trail up from Chickering Trail Head or from the Hwy 100 trailhead than from the park entrance at Belle Meade.

Top of the moderate spectrum for sure up and down hill, hiking pole helps. Busy trail but good experience

Love, love, loved this trail! My husband actually thought it was a little harder than "moderate" but mostly it was just a lot of rustic up and down. Great workout, we did the whole trail in about 2.5 hours at a leisurely pace. There's a lot of people using it so it definitely feels safe if you're alone, but on the flip side don't expect to see a lot of animal activity. Would definitely return to Percy Warner Park to do other trails as well.

Great trail for being in the middle of Nashville. Started at the Deep Well trailhead and did the loop, ended up being a little over 5 miles. The hills are tough! Overall a great hike and workout!
