Features: Birding — Fall Colors — River/Creek — Spring — Views — Waterfall — Wildflowers — Wildlife
Dogs: Off-leash

Need to Know

Water fountains are located at the Nature Center (Edwin Warner Park) and the Golf Course/Belle Meade Boulevard entrance (Percy Warner Park). The Chickering and Deep Well Trailheads do not have water access. Hiking in the summer will include stretches of trail where you'll encounter wasps or hornets. Hiking at night is possible.

Description

The Percy/Edwin Warner trails are a enjoyable network of comfortable singletrack dirt trails with occasional rocky sections. The trails are full of friendly hikers and runners. If you're looking for a hiking partner it is easy to hook up with all levels of hikers here (very friendly).

You can expect good coverage from trees that will moderate the heat in the summer. Beware, that night hiking in this park in the summer is the opposite: muggy. Overall, this trail system will have you coming back for more. The trails are mostly rolling hills with a few step climbs. Some sections of the Harpeth Woods Trail (Blue) and parts of the Mossy Ridge Trail (Red) have moderately technical portions with rocky footing.
