Best Hiking in Nashville For Outdoor Enthusiasts

Much like the hiking trails in Joshua Tree NP, the landscape around Nashville offers a variety of quality hiking opportunities for all hiking abilities all within easy reach of the city.

Perfect for a day out with kids in Nashville, to strenuous overnight camping hikes for the adventurer. There are some excellent campgrounds near Nashville for those who want more than a day hike.

Radnor Lake

A hike through Radnor Lake will take you on a loop through a beautifully wooded landscape of old-growth trees and thick shrubs.

Mossy Ridge | Percy Warner Park

Old Hickory Boulevard will lead you straight to Percy Warner Park, and the Mossy Ridge Trail. Starting at Deep Well, with its ornate entrance, you’ll follow the well-marked trail around the loop.

Hidden Lake

Harpeth River State Park spans over 40 miles (64km) of beautiful Nashville countryside. While boasting a couple of quaint day trails, by far its most popular trail is the hike to Hidden Lake.

Beaman Park

Despite the fact Beaman Park is known to stay frigid long after the rest of Nashville has thawed, you can still expect beautiful wildflowers running along the trails throughout most of the year.

Burgess Falls Trail

At around 1.5 hours from Nashville, Burgess Falls State Park on the Falling Water River is a great day trip with family-friendly hikes.

Fall Creek Falls

There are loads of gorgeous wooded trails for hiking – a total of 34 miles of hiking trails, rock climbing, swimming holes, camping and lodges, and, of course, waterfalls.
