The Trails wind through the woods under a shaded canopy of trees which brings you up close to nature and the abundant wildlife that calls Fontanel home. This two and half mile path is well maintained but not paved. Mountain bikers will enjoy a sprint loop that is mostly a single tract with above ave

It’s been raining for the past few days, the trails were soggy so we only made it about 1 mile in. Turned around to avoid damaging the trails.

Pretty straightforward hike, although they must have just gotten some rain because more than a dozen spots were mud ridden. Beautiful scenery!

This is a pretty nice trail with plenty of parking, but you don't want to go after it's rained. There are a lot of areas that get muddy.

Nice trail outside of Nashville. Park at the winery/distillery and head towards the amphitheater. You will notice a small trail sign on the left. It was not a challenging hike, but watch for roots and rocks hidden below the leaves. There were only 3 muddy spots. We didn’t see anyone the entire hike.

Great trail that is close and can be completed in an hour or so. Not challenging but fun for walking your dog. I walked in the morning of November and the trail was carpeted in leaves making it so much better.

Fun trail. Smooth and wide, so not challenging from a hiking standpoint. But significant elevation change to make it fun. I went with my 4-yr old and he had fun. Good family trail.

The hiking trail is fenced off at the trail head due to construction.

Great workout for my present condition -- moderately challenging but not too strenuous. A good family experience for us.

Nice place for a run, the paved "track" around the field in front of the amphitheater is right at .5 miles. It's nice to string together 2 or 3 laps around the trail with a lap around the paved loop in between. Enjoyable anytime.

Very short trail I think it's less than 2 miles. Short distance is good for my little dog. Grounds people didn't seem to mind both of my dogs off leash. Not a trail if your looking for long workout. Short, sweet, simple and great for dogs.
