Very close to Nashville. If you're trying to get to this trail I'd recommend starting at Chickering Trailhead; if you just search it via Google Maps it'll take you somewhere in the middle of Percy Warner and then you'll get lost trying to find the trail. The trail itself is well-maintained and lined with red markers so once you're on it it's very easy to follow. No payoffs (there's a small lookout bench that branches off at one point in the trail but that's about it) but it's a nice quick hike in the woods that's v conveniently located.

If you're just getting into hiking and live in Nashville this would probably be a good place to start! Also, if you're looking to add mileage to your hike, you can take the Cane Connector Trail to Edwin Warner Park (just follow the signs and striped markers) and check out some of the trails there before heading back and completing Mossy Ridge.
