November 20. Wednesday. Warner Woods Trail at Percy Warner Park, Nashville – 3.5 miles, moderate. We will hike the 2.5 mile Warner Woods Trail plus ½ mile R/T access trail from the parking lot at the Deep Well Trailhead and the ½ mile loop side trail to Luke Lea overlook from which much of the Nashville area is visible.  The trail is in deep forest which provides shade in summer. The surface is mostly dirt with roots and rocks in a couple areas. Walking sticks, sturdy walking shoes, and water are recommended. There are a couple of portable restrooms along the entry road and at the trailhead, but the trailhead ones seem to be locked in winter months; try the first one you come to on the Deep Well entry road or drive to the nature center off Hwy 100 just after the junction with Old Hickory Blvd. before proceeding to the Deep Well Trailhead. We will plan to have lunch at the City Limits Bakery and Café, 361 Clofton Dr., Bellevue, about 2 miles from the trailhead. Meet for carpooling at 9:00 AM at the Glenbrook Kroger parking lot, 1010 Glenbrook Way, Hendersonville. For information or if you plan to meet us at the trailhead at 10:00 AM, please call or text John or Donna Thomas at 925-759-0517 or 0518.
