Loved loved these trails!! I was reading some other posts on this trail and I give this a 5 Star. Ran in rain this early am and trees kept most
If rain out. Trails were muddy, slick and somewhat technical. Loved it! Be happy there’s dirt trails in the city! I travel a lot around the US and dirt trails more than 1 mile are getting hard to find, especially for longer runs. Only thing I would suggest is some signage on the trails. Easy to get lost in there.

Gorgeous trail. Here on a Friday and there weren't a ton of people on the trails. Parking was easy and the trails were well marked. Plan on coming back.

This is my “go to” trail. I know it by heart. A good 2.5 mike workout. Great for running when it’s not too crowded.

Great hike through the woods. beware of the tree roots, they can get ya. Plenty of elevation changes to keep it interesting.

My daughter and I ran 4 miles of this trail on a Tuesday in early April. Very nice, wide, well-marked paved trail. Like so many Tennessee trails, this one’s got some significant elevation changes, especially for flatlanders from the Midwest. Nice, though. Would do it again. Pretty too, in the Spring.

Remarkable & magnificent. Thank You.

This was a very good hike for me and my 5 year old. Great views. Not too hard. There are a couple narrow spots on the ridge which could be scary with younger kids. Will definitely go back and bring my 9 year old.

Peaceful but not necessarily scenic. Two loops. Wide trails.

Nice trail. Walked it with my wife and two kids who are nine and ten years old. A couple hills with some loose rocks but otherwise it is fairly smooth. We saw only a handful of other people that consisted of a mix of families, a couple runners, and a few people walking dogs on leashes.

I like this trail. First time being on it. Love the water scenery.

Not exactly trail running considered it’s paved the whole time, but the bridge at about 1.5 m in is gorgeous to walk across. The river is hard to see the whole time because of the trees and brush so it’s not exactly scenic either.

Will do it again. Enjoyed the ability to choose multiple trails of varying lengths. Trails very well maintained.

Easily accessed trail, was a nice 2.4 mile loop with some great hills. Not really any lookouts or Cool scenic spots by an enjoyable hike. Mildly trafficked.

This was a nice, mostly shaded walk through the woods. It's pretty hilly, though it is paved and easily accessible. There's not a lot of parking, but not many people seem to use this trail so it's never a problem.

Good hike in big city. Lots of traffic. Fun times. Recommend to all hikers. Good trail run also.

I really enjoyed this trail. I had such a blast with the family. It's a nice and easy stroll.

Easy to get to, well maintained and nice variation in the terrain. Twice through makes for a great workout, whether running or hiking. Hiking usually takes about 1hr-1hr15m per loop.

We love all the options here! Paved, dirt, flat, mountain, long, short, etc.

The White Trail, officially named Warner Woods Trail, was exactly what I was looking for. It’s 2.5 miles from the trail head but you’ll need to walk a bit to get to the trail head. It’s probably closer to 3 miles total if you add the walk from the parking lot at either entrance. I hiked it with my 4 year old and she managed about 95% easily.

Short but fun. A few rocky sections to challenge your stride. Well marked. I’d do it again!!

Beautiful hilly trails. Note: path can get pretty muddy.

This hike exceeded my expectations. I'd recommend it for all ages and skill levels, plus the trailhead is only about a mile or so off I-40. For an easy short hike, the sights are pretty cool. You get great views of the small lake from down by the water and from above via the ridge trail that circles the lake. The old abandoned buildings are a unique feature and fun to explore. We finished the 2 mile hike in just under an hour, but this trail could easily be completed in less time if you don't take stops to look around.

There are better hikes around Nashville, but this one is definitely worth checking out.

Not a huge fan of paved, but before you know it, you’re breaking a sweat. So pretty. Great for bird watching. Shaded.
Last time I was there I saw a car that had been broken into at the Deep Well entrance off TN-100. So hide your valuables.

Love hiking through the woods on unpaved paths. Wait until you see this place in spring & fall.

It’s fairly easy, makes for a quick, quiet, pretty bike ride to the bridge and back. Whole area is very pleasant.

Very good hike. Did this on a rainy day so there was really no one else around. Quiet and peaceful.

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.
