Hike the Red Trail at Percy Warner-- LAST MINUTE

**If it rains a lot before then- watch for location change!!

I will be under big tree by parking lot

WARNER PARKS: NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE voted one of top 7 US hikes by Fodor's

Moderate 4.64 miles

This week I would like to divide into 2 groups. One for a fast pace and one for more leisurely pace- I need a volunteer to guide the leisure paced group of anyone is willing.

Just beyond Nashville's bustling cityscape, Percy Warner and Edwin Warner State Parks lie west of town near the Bellevue suburb. Both parks offer a picturesque break from the city with rolling hills, grassy fields, horse paths, and the shade of towering hardwoods. The Mossy Ridge Trail in Percy Warner Park is a great morning or afternoon jaunt for those who want to get a brisk hike in, or for families who want an easy stroll through the beautiful landscape. This particular trail runs in a 4-mile loop that offers a variety of scenic views with a few rigorous hill climbs in between. (Word to the wise: if you'd rather wind up on a downhill path at the end of your hike, head to the right at the trail head and continue the loop from there.) The beautiful woods along the trail offer ample shade, which can reveal dogwoods in full bloom in the spring, boldly colored fall foliage, glimpses of natural springs, and lush grassy meadows. Beyond the trail, the park offers a number of picnic tables throughout as well as playgrounds for kids who need to work out a little extra energy. You can access the trail from the Deep Well entrance off Highway 100.

Start the New Year off right- come meet me and others to hike the red trail at Percy Warner. We will meet a Deep Well Entrance. Dogs on leashes welcome.

      Well- I am not sure what to do! haha I may do the white trail that is shorter in case it starts raining while we are hiking- a gentle rain is ok but a storm/downpour is not. If you live far away and don't want to risk it, I understand
