Ridgetop Trail at Beaman Park Trail is a 4.2 mile out and back trail located near Nashville, Tennessee that features a great forest setting and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is accessible year-round. Due to its location on the Rim, you can expect steep forested inclines, rocky ridges, and elevations around 1,000 feet on your hike. Although Beaman Park has plenty of rises and valleys, the 2.1-mile Ridgetop Trail is considered moderately difficult. The trail takes you one way into the woods, so prepare for a 4.2-mile round trip hike. If you take the Ridgetop path, you're sure to see hilltop views of a hickory forest, as well as diverse wildlife and plant life.

We went to hike the Henry Hollow Loop Trail and when we got to the trailhead there was a Jeep that had just been broken into! We decided to turn around. Be careful!

Great trail. We will do it again but hopefully will not run into people with their dogs not on a leash. Someone's dog jumped on ours when we got to the end of the trail. My dog was on a leash but theirs wasn't.

Quick, easy out and back along a ridge in Beaman Park. Decent winter views. Ideal for dog walking. Popular with trail runners. The "shortcut" isn't really shorter, it just involves less elevation change.

Simple out and back that connects to the Henry Hollow loop and makes for a nice, quick day hike.

great hike for a Saturday morning. much more traffic after 9:30/10. I would recommend going early to beat the crowd! I was hoping for clearer views at the top, or toward the end but it's pretty much just a "there and back" hike - nothing to stop and see!
