Mossy Ridge Trail at Percy Warner - moderate hike on National Trails Day!

Help celebrate American Hiking Society's 22nd Annual National Trails Day by getting outside for a lovely trek!

Time:  meet at 9:15
Place: Deep Well trailhead of Percy Warner Park
Distance: 4.5 total miles
Estimated Hike Time: 2 hours
Difficulty: Moderate
Hike Leader: Hassan
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. 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.

    Great area -- a beautiful trail. The pace was a little too fast for me. Would have liked to slow down a little and enjoy the scenery.

    I made it but was too late to meet up with the group:( I looked up directions on Google, and it was an estimated 45 minute drive, but was actually an hour and 15 min from Murfreesboro (MTSU area). I'll know next time. The hike was great though-kind of strenuous, and the trails were pretty and scenic. I'm only going to sign up for hikes if I'm familiar with the area in the future, so I'll try this one if it is planned again.

      I missed the group as well, but thankfully a friend turned back and walked with me.
