Interesting trail. Probably better suited for biking than hiking, but not bad. "Moderate" rating is a stretch. The elevation changes are gradual. The only thing that bumps it up from "easy" is the ruggedness due to rocks and roots. Fun trail and close to Nashville.

The Pinnacle trail is well situated from Nashville and offered a lot of roaming. Be sure to start off on the right path from the trailhead. The trail resembles the board game Candy Land. Fun hike and easy to get turned around.
