This trail is great to get your heart rate going. There is a lot of elevation change and the scenery is great. We run this trail in about an hour then go directly to the white trail for a 2 mile interval. Fantastic workout!

This was just a delightful hike, one of the nicest we've been on. Just the right mix of easy and moderate for our mood today. The lay of the land was beautiful. Just don't hike this trail if you don't like squirrels. They were everywhere. :-)

Good hike for a city park. Well maintained trail and easy going for the most part. There were quite a few people on the trail which was a bit of a surprise considering it was low 30's and overcast.

I would recommend this trail. The trail is within easy driving distance for anyone in Metro Nashville. Good ups and downs for a solid two to three hour workout; benches to rest and take breaks on; a couple of nice views; a few washed-out areas make footing tricky and the parking area is congested; but overall a great walk.

The Mossy Ridge trail passes through four miles of some of the prettiest sections of Percy Warner park. It is easy to moderate with a few long uphill stretches, yet nothing steep enough to require switchbacks. I'm no tree expert, but there a several massive trees along the route with massive trunks that must be a couple hundred years old. When wild blackberries are in season you can take a break to feast. Look for the bushes when you along the edge of the woods when you cross a road about 1/3 of the way into the hike.
