It's not a hiking trail rather a park and campus for TWRA and also a historical site. There are 2 creeks that connect and great for the dogs to play in, a grass loop in the middle and a lovely place in general in Nashville that's not overcrowded. I love it!
Has some scenic and picturesque parts to the trail, but for the most part just feels like you're out for a neighborhood scroll instead of a hike.
Beautiful scenery, the trail offers a lot of different views and off trail trails through deep woods, fields, and a creek.
Overall very nice, quiet, pretty. Trail gets lost here and there and we ended up rolling under a fence and walking outside of the Center to get back as we were stuck between 2 locked fences. We started at the Iris Garden so the majority of the incline was done all at the beginning. We were under a time constraint so couldn't stop to look at all the history so we'll have to come back!
Love it! Will definitely turn into a favorite of mine. Beautiful walk. Very peaceful.
Not too bad of a walk/hike, especially given the location. Ag center advises it's 1.6 mi, becomes 2.1 if you start at the park on the Seven Mile Creek Greenway. Most areas enough into the woods to be a nice quiet walk, but crossing through parking lots/roads keeps you aware that you're not isolated. Gets muddy and slippery in areas if it's been raining out. All in all, super peaceful and not crowded for an early morning walk on the weekend.
A nice local hike around the AG campus. Some woods, fields, streams. Lots to look at, but quiet especially during thw week. Great for taking the dog along.
Lots and Lots of History!! Found an 1800's cemetary. Nashville does have leash law although many pet owners on the trail did not have their animals on a leash. All in all it was a nice hike.
The Rogers Walk at Ellington Ag Center provides a little of everything history, woodlands, streams, open fields and paved roads all in 1.9 miles. The trail is well shaded and aside from a brief excursion over a parking lot after you pass by the restored 19th century cabins, its mostly a refreshing walk in the woods.
Once down the hill, Sevenmile Creek appears, providing a nice scenic bonus to the trail. An open field with overhead power lines appears about 2/3 of the way through before re-entering the wooded area that lasts for the majority of the remaining loop.
