Mossy Ridge Trail at Percy Warner Park - 8/20

Time:  Hike starts promptly at 6:00 P.M.
Place: Deep Well trailhead of Percy Warner Park
Distance: 4.5 total miles
Estimated Hike Time: ~2 hours
Difficulty: Moderate
Hike Leader: Mike Hicks
Notes: Dogs on a leash okay (Park regs require no more than 6-ft leash - you may be ticketed if you fail to use a leash!)

The Mossy Ridge Trail is the longest of the three loop footpaths in the Warner Parks. It is the quietest and least used loop as well. An ideal training hike, the path leaves the Deep Well trailhead and winds through rich hollows and dry ridges of the Harpeth Hills, making frequent but never sustained elevation changes. Scattered in the woods are big trees and a spring-fed waterfall. At 4.5 miles, the Mossy Ridge Trail qualifies as a full-fledged hike that will not disappoint.
