Nashville, Tennessee Map

This is one of the nicest trails I’ve seen in Nashville. It’s paved but there’s plenty of room for running alongside in the grass and there are primitive trails throughout the route that you can venture off into.

Great trail with beautiful views. It would have been helpful to have a couple trash cans on the path, there was a bit of litter.

Ran yesterday, new to the area. An awesome trail with lots of elevation change for anyone wanting to train. 10/10 would recommend

Decided to do this trail to get some miles, but only had time to do it once as the park closes at 7 PM. I wasn't expecting much because of the lack of elevation, but I was very pleasantly surprised. What this trail lacks in difficulty or elevation, it makes up for in scenery. I will definitely be back with a camera and enough time to explore all the side trails. Great place to go to get someone else interested in hiking.

Good spot, came on a rainy day. Good facilities with bathroom at the nature center. You get good elevation in some spots. It's good woods running, but few outlook points. Will absolutely be coming back for more training!

Great for dogs or a short weekend trail without having to drive outside the city.

Beautiful, scenic, great parking. I would have to say it’s more moderate than easy though.

Excellent place to ride a bicycle

Lovely wooded trail but I’d say it is more moderate than easy.

Easy little hike near the city. Exactly as described.

took 2 hours. it was mostly flat but got pretty tight in the back of the day loop. great for dogs and small kids

Nice little spot to do some biking around the park or town & city.

It’s a legit place to get some exercise/workout done!!

Great short walk. Funny name considering this is actually an old quarry. Nonetheless great views of the lake and the Harpeth.

nice hike, not too easy, but not too hard. I went on a Saturday morning and by the time I was done the park was packed.

Perfect long hike outside of town. Next time I will bring lunch and eat at a picnic table at the second trail head/parking lot. Was there on a Saturday and plenty of parking/not crowded. FYI The only toilet I found there was located at the first trailhead when you come off that main road .

I really liked this trail! I took my lady out to hike with me and she did very well! It’s great for dogs and I think kids would do really well on it too under good supervision.

Now if you want super excitement maybe this trail isn’t for you, but nonetheless it is a really good trail.

I feel like there’s a lot of potential on this trail to relax and lose yourself for a while. We got here at 7 and only really encountered a few people towards the end. The scenery changes constantly and it’s just beautiful. Once you make it to the top water side there are a ton of rocks to hang out on. Be careful though!

It was pretty wet as some parts were muddy puddles, so it holds its water.

I’d say it’s a running trail but some areas are tricky. Lady and I ran the last mile or so and I ate dirt once :)

the loop was the best part, probably wouldn't do the Ridgeline trail portion again as it was pretty flat and boring towards the end.

Great trail. Total workout

New and we'll maintained path.
Lots of free parking.
One outhouse.
Map of the 3 mile trail at the entrance.
Short paved path which turns into dirt, straw and a little bit of mud after you cross under the rail tracks.
There is a bit of up and down so I'd say this was more easy to moderate. A good little hike though.

We hike Percy Warner regularly. The red trail is the toughest but I would categorize it as a moderate. The white trail is easier both are good for beginning hikers.

I was in town at a weekend conference so this was a nice little find right outside of Nashville. I honestly didn't expect much, but it was a nice challenge, especially to just randomly up and do on our midday intermission. It's definitely worth the moderate rating as some of the guys in our crew didn't quite make it to dinner that night after being worn out from the elevation changes on this trail. I'd suggest being in somewhat decent shape before attempting and probably wouldn't recommend it for elderly people hoping for a flat hike.

Nice day hike.

This trail was so pretty! Especially during the golden hour. Would definitely recommend it for a nice, easy day hike.

Nice easy hike. Took our 4month old puppy for her first hike here. Pretty heavily traveled , lots of dogs, nice views, shaded.
