My favorite trail.

This trail is quite popular for good reason. I rarely went more than 5 minutes without coming across another person. The beginning and end of the loop parallels Vaughn's Creek which is picturesque. I was surprised how rocky the first quarter mile of the trail is as you ascend the hill. What sets this trail apart from most others around Nashville are the high elevations and the large old growth hardwood forests with some of the largest cedars and oaks I've ever seen. The climb to the top of this trail was pretty brutal for a beginner hiker like me, with the seemingly endless switchbacks, but I certainly felt accomplished by the time I reached the top of the highest knob. The rest of the trail takes it easier on the hiker.

Did this nice hike with my Frenchie! My frenchie got a little tired at points but we enjoyed the hike!

The Anderson Road Fitness Trail is my go-to trail when I want to be close to nature but I don't want to drive too far outside of town. I highly recommend going for a stroll around sundown for the many fabulous lake views. On a quiet day, you may even see deer near the trail. It takes me roughly 30-40 minutes to complete the loop.

Great short trail run will plenty of options to extend. Smooth terrain for the most part and a few hills that will spike your heart rate, including the run up the stairs from the parking area. The white loop also easily connects to the red loop if you’re up for more miles. The 2 together is about 8 miles.

Great trail..can be busy on the weekend. I like that you can cross over into 2 other greenways and end up at the Dam 14 miles away if you are up to it. This trail is scenic, well paved, several bridges and overall a nice ride.

Good trail. Did the 3.9 mile day loop trail. It rained the last two days so I thought it would be super muddy. It was not! Little bit of ricks and roots. But not overgrown at all and only saw one other hiker. Little slippery when the sky opened up on us, but the canopy was good cover for the most part.

Great challenging trail

Quick three mile loop that provides a decent work-out. Two or three moderate climbs in both directions. A mix of woods and pastures. Nice addition to the Warner Parks system. The single-track does narrow in a few spots (tall grass), so apply bug spray to ward off ticks.

Very nice place to hike trail was very good on directions

Good and changes with season. Please correct your app. No dogs/pets allowed.

Great hike, moderate inclines, be sure to bring water! Stopped towards the end on a secluded bench to have a picnic lunch!

Great path, well marked, shaded, perfect for a trail run!

Lightly traveled path... intermediate level; some rock and root traversing. Mostly shaded, clearly marked and clear. No ticks (so far).

This trail is clean & fairly quiet if you go early in the day. Lots of rocks & roots along the trail so watching your step which makes it moderate instead of easy. A few light uphill climbs. It makes a great hike for a quick hike close to Nashville.

Nice trail, well used though with lots of people. A little more crowded then I prefer. Beautiful views though.

More technical than most mid TN trails, lots of rocks. Love it though and have been riding this trail for a long time. This is the first local mountain bike trail that I remember.

Again Yekew is incorrect, hikers, runners, and dogs on a leash are allowed. No horses, no motorized vehicles.

Pedestrians have the right-of-way, cyclists do not.

A great trail if you want an hour hike.

Nice hills for quick but good workout in about an hour. Shady trail. Take the stairs up/down to add a little extra to the workout.

Nice trail with exposed tree roots and rocks - very interesting and beautiful. Scenic views of the lake. On the way back to the parking lot we came upon some deer. Recommend!

trail was good, well marked. I was hoping for more lake views along the way only saw the lake like 3 times.. it's mostly forest and it's pretty thick between you and the lake. for being closer to town is a great choice for the limited Nashville area
