It was really nice and peaceful here. There are a few different hiking trails that you can go on depending on your activity level. We walked along the lake and it was really nice and calming. And so close to downtown Nashville.

Lovely visitors center with clean restrooms and benches outside for changing footwear. A very helpful staff member, Angelina, answered our questions and gave us a new TN State Park Passport souvenir book. The ridge trail was beautiful and provided an aerobic workout. The only negative is there were so many people it was congested and as I am a slow... More

Many years ago when I had a long-distance relationship with a Vanderbilt student, I remember a magical visit to the place and always longed to go back. Over the last couple of years, I've been able to visit again during several seasons and love it just as much. Pick up a map at the Visitor's Center so you can decide... More

Its like being in a post card. Gorgeous walk with great vistas, especially in the fall months. Great place if you just want to clear your head or for a family outing.

A real gem of a park in South Nashville with plenty of trails, silence and natural beauty. Mind the pesky beavers who seem to eat a lot of the trees for breakfast!

A great winter hike near sunset! We were so close to deer, it was amazing. The fact that we were so close to the city is an added bonus too. Definitely worth your time.

Great place to see the outdoors and see nature at its best, including trails or paved walkways. I am sure summer offers a great place to walk or run with foliage keeping one cool.

This place is the best nature centered state park in the entire Nashville area in my opinion. There are great hikes and walks for all levels of comfort. They have paved easier walks for those with strollers or wheelchairs, they have more inclined off the path hikes for those more adventurous. They offer canoeing and kayaking in the summer on...

I don't get here as often as I would like since we move further out of town. We love to hike both hills for about a 6 mile loop...great workout. Well maintained trail and beautiful scenery for a hike. The trail around the lake is pretty too if you're with kids or want to take it easy.
