Fun hike, we started too late and couldn’t finish before dark but will come back!

Nice trail. Easy with a few small hills. There is some airplane noise but overall a very nice trail. We will definitely go back.

Excellent trail. About 4.5 miles with a fair bit of climbing. Trail is well marked for the most part. Has some absolutely wonderful spots where nature will just sing to you.

Great night hike with Nashville hiking meetup

Very enjoyable trails. We also took the story time trail down by the river and it was beautiful to sit and enjoy.

Easy drive from Nashville and well worth it. This is a lovely trail that offers great views of the lake from varying heights as the trail moves along. I find that this trail makes for great exercise but is not too strenuous. It’s a nice trail to enjoy with your (leashed) pet too. Please always keep your pets leashed for their safety, the safety of wildlife, and the safety of other people and their pets!

Beautiful paved trail around the lake. Lots of historic information about the setting along the wide path. Nice seating along the way to enjoy the lake and shaded areas.

Really pretty and fairly challenging trail. I use the Deep Well entrance. I have run this trail twice - each time the opposite direction. One way is easier than the other. One way, the gain is 843; going the other direction, it was 1,066 ft. I got a bit lost and ended up adding 1 mile to the run - but it is actually well-marked. I did see several tissues/trash along the trail and the majority of dogs were not leashed (but well-behaved).

What a beautiful trail that is perfectly marked in red on trees! You cannot get lost if you follow the markings. A variety steep and gradual inclines that will get your heart rate up. Traffic was minimal on a beautiful Friday morning.

My pup and I love this trail! Very hilly and definitely gets your heart pumping. In and out of the shade, pretty rocky but still very stable.

bad signage but fun short and easy trail

One of the more secluded trails I’ve found within Nashville! I ran it today and it turns out there are some rockier parts that I ended up walking just to save my ankles! I’d say it a great lowkey hike that still packs a little bit of incline for a good workout, great to take your dog on, but not the best to run unless you are experienced with running rockier trails! You can end up off trail pretty easily, there are a lot of crossing trails and roads, but luckily it’s all in the park so you can’t get too off path. Really pretty with the leaves changing currently!

Great trail. Well marked and plenty of wildlife. Had a family of about 10 wild turkeys walk past me. Highly recommend.

One of my absolute favorites! I definitely preferred going mid-week and mid-day when there was less traffic, but thats just a personal preference. Awesome trail all around.

Very well maintained, nice easy paved pathways, but has some real nice trails through the woods lots of wildlife. great greenway

Ya gotta love Nashville. A very enjoyable walk during a stressful time. I needed that!

6 miles 3.5 hrs non stop (15 mins)

This is a nice, easy trail. It’s poorly marked, but there were enough people on the trail that we would just follow the direction they were going. Lots to look at on the campus as well. I would totally suggest to someone with kids 3+

Easy urban trail.

This is an enjoyable hike through the woods. The lake shoreline is within a few hundred feet of the trail for much of the loop. The trailhead has lots of parking spaces. The trail is very well marked.

The weather was perfect today with highs in the low 60s and plenty of sunshine. One bit of excitement occurred right on the front end of the hike in that a buck came out onto the middle of the walkway from the parking lot to the trail. Then he stood there interacting with some of the people, and not in a good way. He charged several people and we don’t know if he was not feeling well, or if he was just being aggressive because of the season of the year. Anyway it was a great day for a hike and we thoroughly enjoyed this location today.

Went early in the morning only to do volunteer trail but also ended up doing the day loop trail as well since they were connected. Fun and easy. Not very many people on a chilly fall morning
