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

Great help hike
Ez and enjoyable with the kids

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.

Great to go early morning on the weekend - lovely trail with lots of ups and downs. Well maintained and great for hiking or trail running.

There is not a whole lot to see besides the woods and some cool wildlife but the trail itself was a great little hike with a nice easy elevation that isn’t to steep or challenging. Perfect for a nice walk with a friend or a run in the woods.

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.

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.

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.

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!!

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.
