Mossy Ridge Trail - Night Hike for Experienced hikers 12/20R

  • Deep Well Entrance

    6921 Hwy 100, Nashville, TN (map)

    36.064831 -86.885651

  • Meet at the Highway 100 Trailhead (1st Pavilion on left after Deep Well entrance off Hwy 100) (Near Vaughn Gap Rd/Music City Bikeway crossing)
  • HIKE STATS:
    Time:  Hike starts promptly at 6:30 P.M.
    Place: Deep Well entrance of Percy Warner Park
    Distance: 5½ total miles
    Estimated Hike Time: 2+ hours
    Difficulty: Moderate (Experienced hikers only. Night hikes are not best for beginners.)

    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.

    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).
