Get the difficult part of the climb over with first. Some times parking is a challenge, so you can't always start at the steep side of the trail, but I'd recommend that of you can. We've seen turkey, deer, and owls on this trail before....More

What a beautiful park to enjoy the great outdoors. Love the beautiful trees and lake views. A real bonus is the paved road for the walking path. Nice restrooms. Be mindful of weekends and the crowds. Parking can be a challenge.

It was a great place for a walk, however it wasn't what I was expecting from a state park - mostly my fault for not doing my research before driving up there. There's one main trail around the lake and a handful of little trails...More

Haven’t been here since I moved away from Nashville 10 years ago. It is still great. Certainly draws a crowd on a beautiful weekend morning. The hike to the top of the ridge is great. Just enough for some good exercise.
