Part of the Warner Parks trail system, this hike combines human and natural history as it loops through the Harpeth Hills, a collection of ridges southwest of downtown Nashville. First, the Harpeth Woods Trail follows a portion of the old Natchez Trace before visiting a long-abandoned rock quarry in the Little Harpeth River Valley. It then climbs a knob, passing some old-growth trees before descending back along a small stream to once again pick up the old trace.

Did the roughly 3 mile loop this morning. Was very plesantly surprised what a lovely trail it was so close to Metro Nashville. The High Ridge trail was a 4.5 star trail, the shoreline trail was 2-3 stars. Well taken care of, well marked, can't wait to visit again.

Trail has been redone and is now a nice starter trail for the family.
