Jones Mill Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This newer but already very popular trail in the Bryant Grove area of Long Hunter State Park was designed by mountain bikers. It travels through open cedar glades, gravel glades, and cedar forests along the shores of Percy Priest Lake. Avoid it on weekend afternoons."
--Johnny Molloy, 60 Hikes within 60 Miles: Nashville - 4th Edition (Menasha Ridge Press).
Good hike with a 4-year old and a dog. A few elevation changes that may be tiring for younger kids but it is a good hike. Great bench about 1/2 way through the hike that is perfect for a snack or rest with the kids. Good vistas in a couple places and the trail is well maintained.
Nice Trail, nice elevation gain at first and then up and down, wondering through some pretty woods with the occasional huge tree (tulip popular, oak). The yellow tulip leaves in the fall were spactacular, covering everything. A couple of road crossings and several areas where horses roam throught he woods on there own 8 mile loop. Towards the end of the loop, the squirels and the birds are everywhere. Nice morning or afternoon hike anytime of the year, as with all the Warner Park trails.
This is a great 2.5 mile loop trail. It's fairly rolling with some long up and down hill stretches. It's fairly popular with the trail runners. The short trail description is good, except that it mentions a panoramic view that I've been unable to find. Either I'm missing a side trail that gets you past the trees, or the view is best during the winter when there are fewer leaves on the trees. If you live in Nashville and you're short on time, this trail is a great choice for a fast hike or a challenging, but doable run.
