The beautiful fall weather provides a great time of year for walking and hiking in Nashville. The city is full of beautiful colors and they can be seen in many of the parks and natural areas in the Nashville area. Here are a few of the top places to enjoy hiking and walking.
Richland Creek Greenway
As one of the best trails in the area and only four miles from downtown, the Richland Creek Greenway is a great place for walking and hiking. However, this isn't a true hiking trail and won't provide a huge challenge, if that's what you're after. The greenway provides paved trails, measuring nearly four miles and plenty of nature to enjoy.
The Warner Parks
Both Percy and Edwin Warner Parks are great choices for a good walk or hike. They cover nearly 2,700 acres of land and many consider this area to be a top destination in the city for hiking. Mossy Ridge Trail is one of the best hiking trails, found in Percy Warner Park and was named to the list of Fodor's Travel Guides top hiking trails. Eight other hiking trails are found throughout, along with picnic areas and a nature center.
Shelby Park AKA Shelby Bottoms
Found just across the river from downtown, this park covers over 1200 acres of space. IT features about five miles of paved trails with five more miles of hiking trails. Whether you want to walk or you prefer to hike, you can find the right trail, with the right challenge for you at Shelby Bottoms.
Another great choice for a walk or hike in the fall is Beaman Park. This is a park located near Highland Rim and provides three trails covering over five miles. Many unique plants are found here, which make it the perfect place to reconnect with nature.
