My "Go To" since I reside about 6 miles from the Deep Well Trailhead. Have hiked it since moving to Tennessee in the late 80's... Never gets old....

Update for 1/25/18: A group of us hike this trail fairly regularly and it makes for a great moderate day hike. But this particular trip, there was still a lot of water seeping out of the ground from the recent snow and we encountered a good bit of sticky mud. That made the hike much less enjoyable than normal. Would strongly recommend giving this trail another week for the trail to dry out.

Kinda fun. Got my car broken into. Be careful

Great trail for all levels. Even saw two deer cross the path.

5 stars are for what there's in TN... It is dog friendly, has some elevation and relief to it. Actually, I think they call it Day Loop. I'd say the difficulty is more of easy/moderate, than moderate. Overall, it was an enjoyable hike. It was very lightly trafficked as we went hiking earlier in the morning when it still was pretty chilly.

Great walk through the woods. nice access to the lake. would recommend to anyone that wants to get away. I just did the loop portion of the trail. Trail is very well marked and very clean.

If you are looking for a secluded paved walk in the woods with some mileage and exercise benefit, this is about as good as it gets in Nashville.

This park has a collection of 3 different mini trails. One leads to a waterfall, another up an incline to an amazing view, and another meanders along a river. Very short hikes though. Be mindful of when it rains, otherwise it will be challenging on one of the hikes because of the mud.

I love this hike to take family or new hikers. Tons of wildlife, great views of the lake. Good slight challenge with some elevation change. Very well maintained and conveniently near the city in a beautiful neighborhood.

Its a nice trail and a nice peaceful walk through the woods, however thats all it is. No great views or falls or anything too scenic to see. Can get crowded. Good day hike near the city if youre not looking to travel too far

Good for a run or bike ride.

I love the trail itself, but so many people let their dogs off leash.

Trail is nice if you like walking around in an open field. Very peaceful this time of year (December). We were lucky to see a barge coming down the river and the bluffs on the other side were cool. There are no clear signs or markers where the trails start or split off. It’s hard to know which direction you are going.

Fun little day loop. Enough elevation to challenge your calves but manageable even trail for the most part! Could be sketchy in the rain but on a dry day it’s a beautiful trail.

I used this paved trail to get to another trail I hiked. I started at the deep well parking lot and did not walk the entire loop. What I did walk was beautiful and had steep incline. There were lots of people which made me feel more safe. I will return to hike other trails off this trail!

Beautiful slice of Mother Nature. Clean, easy trails. Magical for those that like to play around with photography.

No pets policy is stupid. It’s the outdoors, not a hospital or restaurant.
