Mossy Ridge Trail - Night Hike for Experienced hikers 09/16

HIKE STATS:
Time:  Hike starts promptly at 6:00 P.M.
Place: Deep Well trailhead of Percy Warner Park
Distance:[masked] total miles
Estimated Hike Time: 1.5 to 2 hours
Difficulty: Moderate (Experienced hikers only. Night hikes are not best for beginners.)
Hike Leader: Mike Hicks
Notes: A head lamp (recommended) or flash light will be needed for hiking in the dark. 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.

Directions to Deep Well entrance of Percy Warner Park:
From the point where Highway 100 begins at Highway 70 near the Belle Meade Post Office, head west on[masked] miles to the large stone gates on the left that mark the entrance of Percy Warner Park. Turn left from Highway 100 and pass through the gates, staying right when the road splits. Reach the Deep Well trailhead parking at 0.6 miles. The Warner Woods and Mossy Ridge Trails start behind the trailside kiosk. If coming from Old Hickory Blvd or further west, the Entrance will be on your right ~¾ miles past the Old Hickory Blvd Red Light between Edwin and Percy Warner Parks.

We usually have dinner afterward at the Sportsman's Grill (at the HWY 100 & HWY 70 split)

    Sorry I didn't make it. I thought I had a good idea where I was going...apparently not, I couldn't find the deep well entrance!
