A lot to see for such a short hike

Kid friendly (+6) and scenic with short trails. It is mostly not challenging.

Short and easy hike. Decent view at the top and cool man-made waterfall. Good hike for some who may not be in the best shape.

Short quick hike. The views were overrated. The highlight is the lower trail on the north side of the bluff, the tunnel trail, it takes you to a manmade tunnel, interesting history.

From the Harris Street Bridge parking area, I hiked the trails leading from the trailhead to the historic water tunnel with great views of the river on the right and huge rocky bluffs on the left, and followed it back to a junction for the main path to ascend the steep staircase to the overlook. The views from the bluff make this trail one of the most scenic trails near Nashville. This was a moderate hike for a beginner like me with the steep climbs totaling about 1.8 miles and took me roughly an hour to complete.

Very short but really three options for hikes, one that’s rather steep but takes you to a breathtaking overlook of the river gorge and countryside. Great if you have an hour or two, before river activities.

Surprisingly short and steep, with a remarkable view of the Harpeth River. imho it's too easily accessible. Would do it again if in the area.

Wow. I loved this place. You can actually go along technically 3 trails if you park at a certain parking lot. You can go down a historical tunnel which will lead you to the watering hole with the waterfall which is very pretty. You can also go along another one that doesnt have a name that I say which leads along the cliff and its gorgeous. The last one you will have to go up a steep area and continue walking up and will get breathtaking views over the river and land. I loved it! I cant wait to bring my partner over to this area when they have time off. They thought it was gorgeous from the photos I was sending them.

Beautiful outlooks! Not the longest trails, but a great mini hike not far from I-40

I’ve done this hike a few times and it’s always fun. Easy enough for almost anyone, pretty short and high reward. I love going each season to see the changes! And swim in the Harpeth when it’s warm....

Nice gem off 40. I wanted to get a little movement in before the drive back to Memphis from Nashville. There’s more than just the out and back here. Be sure to check out the historic tunnel as well as the narrows. The springtime flowers were beautiful and the trail is very well maintained.

This one was a bit underwhelming. The views of the river and surrounding landscape are limited until you approach the top of the bluff, and then the trail abruptly ends at a "no trespassing" sign. The views from the top are good, but not great. There are multiple homes or other buildings within view no matter which direction you look.

Great little trail for when you want to feel like you’re not in Nashville without having to drive very far. We always take our GSD and he loves it. Great swimming hole for him.
