easy walk and beautiful scene

Used to walk this trail every day. Very easy with a paved path. Had many animal experiences here.

Great, easy trail that is paved through forested land, rock formations, wildlife and great views of the lake.

great trail. it has a 4 mile option and a 5 mile option. both are loops you can also combine them for about an 8 mile hike. BEAUTIFUL scenery well marked and good amount of traffic. I drive over an hr to get to this trail and it's worth every min.

Great trail for running if you're looking for something more mellow without steep gains. If you park at the Couchville Lake parking lot, you can make the run a good out-and-back for 15ish miles.

Did this today.. Wasn't bad, little wet and slippery on the rocks at times. would do again.

Boring, too easy,

Really liked this little lake loop, want to take my boyfriend here for a picnic.

We took our dogs on this trail last week. Had a great time. Very clean. Seen other dog owners hiking with their dogs. Everyone was very polite and good dog handlers.

Very nice walk . Will do again. peaceful and quiet and relaxing.

Well paved. Easy for beginners. Saw deer every time. Not much hiking but still a very nice place.

A nice quiet hike once you clear the cove where the boats hang out. Most of the trail is well covered with foilage and fairly clear until you get to the last mile or so where the trail goes through some taller grass. Tick repellent is definitely recommended.

Nice hike. Went early before it got to hot. Haven’t done this trail in 20 year. Nice sights.

Definitely a do again,dog friendly is a plus too

Nice easy walk with a great view

Well paved and easy for beginners

This is a nice 2 plus mile trail. When My kids were little, my wife and I would push them in the stroller. Now we go out there to enjoy the nature and get a light but rigorous walk. It is also o good place to break in hiking shoes unit you are ready to do more difficult trails. the wildlife is beautiful as you will see birds, deer, wild turkey, and other critters. Its great not having to deal with dogs on the trail (and this is coming from a dog lover) when you are trying to walk fast.

As a Mt. Juliet resident, my dog and I frequent this trail--we usually complete the 4.4 mile "day loop" portion. I would rank this trail "easy" over "moderate" for sure--there isn't a whole lot of elevation gain, and when there is it isn't for very long. The trail is well marked and well maintained, though it does get washed out a bit after heavy rain. I would highly recommend doing this one on a winter day (especially if it snows!) or during some light rain--it's really the only time you'll get any solitude. It's pretty crowded on most weekends if the weather is nice, and the parking lot will fill up by 9am in the summer. My older dog absolutely loves this trail--it's easy enough for him and the perfect length. Overall, I would definitely recommend if you're looking for an easy woodsy stroll close to town with some bonus lake views.

Easy and good for short morning or afternoon hike.

Awesome trail for being less than 15 mins from Nashville. Lot of terrain change...pine/oak/cedar/exposed sandstone. Very cool. Saw a lot of wildlife...squirrels, ducks, rabbit, 2 loons and a huge owl! Very well marked and traveled.

Paved trail. we love this one! no pets allowed.

Fun, interactive trail for the younger kids.

Very easy hike. I packpacked a night and it was nice. There is a bit of trash on the trail, bring a bag to pack it out (please). Be sure to lock your vehicle, mine was broken into a few years ago. Great for a trail run also.

Not much of a “hike” if you ask me

Very fun for anyone

The trail was nice but not very well marked in certain areas. Some piles of trash along parts of the trail but overall was quite enjoyable and nice.
