April 24. Wednesday.  Burch Woods Trail, Edwin Warner Park, Nashville. 3 miles. Moderate. Dogs are  not allowed on this trail but are allowed on other trails.  There are restrooms and interesting displays at the Nature Center. We will take a connector trail to the Burch Woods Trail that leads off from the parking lot behind the Nature Center, crossing Hwy. 100 at a stoplight and connecting to the trailhead in the new Burch Reserve (opened 2018).  There is also a parking lot at the trailhead. The Burch Woods Trail is all unpaved and easy on the feet with little in the way of rocks or roots. There are some moderate uphill sections, but the trail is generally easy and is mostly in forest. If you are up to more hiking, you can add the 2 mile Harpeth Woods Trail (dogs on leash allowed) which also leads off from the Nature Center. It takes about the same amount of time as the Burch Woods Trail (1 1/2 hours) and is generally more steep, more rocky and full of roots with some muddy areas when weather is wet. After the hike, we will eat lunch at City Limits Bakery and Cafe, 361 Clofton Dr., Nashville 37221  Meet at 9:30 at the Glenbrook Kroger parking lot, 1010 Glenbrook Way, Hendersonville or car pooling, or meet us at 1015 at the Warner Park Nature Center, 7311 Hwy 100, near Old Hickory Blvd.(Bellevue), about 2 miles from the Nature Center.
