Update

A nice singletrack course through Percy and Edwin Warner Parks.

Dan Williams

Overview

This run features several well-marked trails (Red, White, and Blue) in the Percy/Warner System.
Features: Birding — Fall Colors — River/Creek — Spring — Views — Waterfall — Wildflowers — Wildlife
Dogs: Off-leash

Need to Know

Water fountains are located at the Nature Center (Edwin Warner Park) and the Golf Course/Belle Meade Boulevard entrance (Percy Warner Park). The Chickering and Deep Well Trailheads do not have water access. Running in the summer will include stretches of trail where you'll encounter wasps or hornets. Running at night is possible.

Runner Notes

These trails are nicely maintained singletrack through the Edwin and Percy Warner parks. Expect to see leashed and unleashed dogs (even with the restrictions), and runners of all types from ultra to cross-country teams. The trails can be slippery when wet, and evenings and weekends can be crowded.

Description

The Percy/Edwin Warner trails are a enjoyable network of comfortable singletrack dirt trails with occasional rocky sections. The trails are full of friendly hikers and runners. If you're looking for a running partner it is easy to hook up with all levels of runners here (very friendly).

You can expect good coverage from trees that will moderate the heat in the summer. Beware, that night running in this park in the summer is the opposite: muggy. Overall, this trail system will have you coming back for more. The trails are mostly rolling hills with a few step climbs. Some sections of the Harpeth Woods Trail (Blue) and parts of the Mossy Ridge Trail (Red) have moderately technical portions with rocky footing.

After a rain, it may be wet and muddy. But the flowing streams are worth it. 8.8mi
