Percy Warner and Edwin Warner Park, collectively known as Warner Parks, are located 30 minutes south of downtown. The Warner Parks are the largest municipally administered parks in Tennessee and together span 2684 acres of forest and field. The historic entrance is marked by “The Allee”, an impressive set of stone steps. There are numerous trails of various distance and difficulty options. However, be prepared, these parks are known for their hills. If you’re up for a challenge, head up to the top of the hill in Percy Warner Park and enjoy views of the Nashville skyline. Rather than proscribe a specific route, we’ve included a link to the park trail map, which shows numerous options for one-way runs and loops.
For a road run, a great option is the 5.8 mile and 11.2 mile loop options on the paved road. The routes are marked and are popular with runners. On the “11.2”, there are hills at 3, 6, and 9 miles. For longer, continue onto attractive Bellemeade Blvd., for up to 5 more miles to I-70. Gorgeous homes!
For a trail run, try the 4.5 mile Mossy Ridge Trail loop, which has rolling hills, great views, and a good surface. Many other opportunities for add-ons.
Harpeth River Greenway. A paved multi-use trail that connects to the west end of Edwin Warner Park and extends northwest along the Harpeth River for 4 miles. Pleasant running along the river. Parking off at the west end Old Harding Rd.Park Trail Map
