HIKE STATS: Time: Hike starts promptly at 6:30 P.M. Place: Deep Well entrance of Percy Warner Park (http://maps.google.com/maps?q=36.077928,-86.886243&num=1&sll=36.077908,-86.886234&sspn=0.001225,0.002816&ie=UTF8&ll=36.077908,-86.886234&spn=0.078388,0.180244&z=13) Distance: 5½ total miles Estimated Hike Time: 2+ hours Difficulty: Moderate (http://www.meetup.com/nashville-hiking/pages/Hike_Rating_System/) (Can be very strenuous for novice hikers - Headlamps/flashlights are recommended) 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. 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. Description courtesy of Johnny Molloy Note that because of changes to parking/access at the Deep Well entrance, the hike is now ~5.5 miles. 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 TN[masked] miles to the large stone gates on the left with Deep Well Entrance sign that mark the entrance of Percy Warner Park (Immediately after the Vaughn Gap Rd/Music City Bikeway Stop Light). Turn left from Highway 100 and pass through the gates, staying right when the road splits. We meet at the Highway 100 Trailhead (1st Pavilion on the left - small pavilion after the 1st set of parking areas). 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 (Just before the Vaughn Gap Rd/Music City Bikeway Stop Light). We usually have dinner afterward at the Sam's Sport's bar (at the HWY 100 & HWY 70 split).
