Mossy Ridge Trail at Percy Warner Park - 7/30

HIKE STATS:
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.

      If it's really bad, go to a dermatologist and get a steroid shot!

    Just took part in a National Weather Service chat about this evenings weather. They expect less than 1/10" before 8 PM, so come prepared to get a little wet, but not soaked (of coarse the weather service has been known to miss a prediction here or there!)

    The weather is looking to be rather wet. I will try to make a decision about hiking tonight by 4:00.

      A wise man once said "Hikers don't get wet. They feel the rain." That wise man was none other than our own Steve Nunley.
