“Picnic in the Great Outdoors”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

These two parks are located together in the rolling hills of Middle
Tennessee. You can weave through the park on foot, car, bike, etc. Nooks are everywhere for time alone and picnic facilities are readily available. No food nearby...so bring your own.

“Favorite place for hikes and portraits”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

I love the giant stone steps and walls. They make wonderful background for portraits all four seasons. It is also my family's favorite place to take short day hikes. It amazes me that something this unspoiled can be so close to the city.

“Hike, Bike, Ride, or Drive”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

I was just at Edwin Warner Park today, on a walk with my mom and dog. We took the 2 mile paved loop around a section of Edwin Warner, which is good for when you just want to walk, not necessarily hike. For serious hikers, I recommend the Blue Trail, a strenuous trail if you're like me and don't get out to hike as much as you'd like, but completely doable. There is also the Candy Cane connector trail, which connects you to Percy Warner park. Both parks have great trails. Percy Warner park has a driving path for those wishing to stay in their cars and enjoy the scenery, including an overview of Steeplechase grounds and the surrounding areas. The Nature Center at Edwin Warner has great information for the kids, as well as a play area with mud and a creek to play in. Behind the Nature Center is a pond resplendent with dragonflies, frogs, and fish. Both parks are very popular and bring in huge crowds on the weekends, especially on nice days. Behind Edwin Warner, down Old Hickory Blvd. and right on Vaughn Rd., is a dog park popular with locals.

“Nashville Gem”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Great place to hike, walk, bike, horseback ride, meet friends for a picnic, take pictures...wonderful outdoor space with tons of hiking trails and walking paths. There are also separate horse trails. Great place to walk your dog (on a leash). While trails and paths are marked, make sure you know which trail or path you are on because one wrong turn can turn a short hike into an all day adventure.

There are picnic and playground sites with a number of ways to access awesome creeks for the kids to play in.

We live about half a mile away. A great place to go hiking, bike riding or go on a picnic. There are also horse trails. A must see .
