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.

Trail looks nice but the other hikers are so rude and loud we weren't able to enjoy the hike. People stand in the middle of the trail to get on their phone so they can record being in nature. Huh? We come to the woods for peace and quiet and this was not it.

4.1 miles using MotionX-GPS. Good out & back on a hardwood ridge that was part of a logging operation back in the day. A 6 ft. Rat Snake had parked itself perpendicular across the trail. Always nice to see interesting fauna along the way.

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.
