Great challenging trail

This is my home trail. My dog and me hike it atleast twice a month. It never disappoints us. I recommend it to anyone that wants a good hike but not to tasking. my favorite trip was probably when it was snowing.
There are some stairs that are unevenly spaced and deep. my friend has a bad knee (old sports injury) the stairs were a little difficult for her so you want to plan ahead for them. Super dog friendly with plenty of swimming opportunities for our furry friends.

Most trails appear to be of easy to moderate + difficulty. Intresting trails and scenic greenways. Plenty of activities for children. Pet friendly areas. Plenty of parking. Close to home.

A great little park on the south side of the city. Lots of fun walking along the river and good for all ages.

Beautiful moderate hike - even (especially?) in the rain.

The only downfall was a combo of not well marked at sports and not traveled therefore a ton of spider webs.

Went with a group from work, had the best guide we could ask for. Checked off a bucket list item, and will definitely be back again!! Highly recommend this!

Excellent single track for MTB!

It’s a pretty easy hike. Beautiful, but lots of hidden roots and rocks from erosion popping up. It’s easy to twist an ankle or trip. Just look down as you go.

Great hike to take family and friends. Easy, short, and very photogenic falls at the end. You can actually walk into the base of the falls to sit and stand while they wash over you.

Moderate hike, access to the lake at various points along the trail. Highly recommend.

Great little taste of nature for when you're in Knoxville and can't leave your responsibilities behind to get yourself to the smokies.

Rode the 7 mile trail for the first time on my new mountain bike this morning. Trails are very well marked and great for someone new to trail riding. Had to get off the bike about 3 times to make it up a few hills with big roots exposed, only because I didn't get enough momentum on the downhill first. Great ride, great trails.

One of my favorite trails

Half the trail has moderate elevation gain in a beautiful wooded area and the other half is flat and runs along the water. We almost always see deer and a variety of birds on and along the water. The hiking trail is well maintained. The rangers are friendly and helpful.

Great place to take your kids and pets, will be coming back again!

Took a trip here this weekend and loved it. The lady working at the museum was so friendly and helpful. Be sure to get a trail map, the number markers on the trails correspond to information boxes on the map. The trails and grounds were well maintained. Learned a lot, great historic trails. Only encountered a couple other hikers, so nice and quiet too. My pup also approves!

Very well-marked, well-maintained trail. Interesting battle history markers along the way.

I loved the trails here.

Awesome place with awesome views of the quarry! A bit of a hike up a small mountain, as well as level trail.

Loved it! The falls were beautiful!

Best falls I’ve been to this summer!!! The hike to the blue hole was rough. I had two dogs with me, but they did really well. Make sure you wear sturdy shoes that you don’t mind getting wet!

Very short but really three options for hikes, one that’s rather steep but takes you to a breathtaking overlook of the river gorge and countryside. Great if you have an hour or two, before river activities.

All of the reviews were very helpful. The entire trail is easy until you get to the falls. When you turn left at the falls sign, the last 100 yards is descending down stairs and a slippery root filled trail. This was an excellent first hike in Tennessee.

Surprisingly short and steep, with a remarkable view of the Harpeth River. imho it's too easily accessible. Would do it again if in the area.

I’ve done this paddle ride twice this year. Views and scenery are amazing. Seeing the Bald Eagles fly over was breathtaking. Is definitely one of my favorite ways to spend a day.

Some parts of the trail were not marked very well and some parts were eroded away.
