    I'll be running the Mossy Ridge trail at Percy Warner Park tomorrow morning. Can't do it fully barefoot, too rocky in spots, but will wear my Kinvaras for part and barefoot part.

    If you want to join me, come on! I will be at the trailhead at 6. Any later and it gets really hot.

    I'll join you. The map doesn't show the trailhead. Are you going to enter on Chickering and drive straight until you cross the trail or be at a specific parking area?

    There's an entrance off Highway 100 with stone gates, before you get to Cheekwood coming from Franklin. The drive ends in a parking lot with the trailhead just above it. I'll be at the trailhead.

    I don't know if you've done this trail often -- it's pretty hilly and rocky, and the mileage is actually closer to 5.6 if you track it with GPS. We should be early enough to miss most of the heat.



    See you then!

    I'll be there at 6. Been wanting to run that trail. I've done the 2.5 loop a few times. Will be fun!

    I have hiked the trail many times but usually come in from the end of Belle Meade Blvd and do both loops. I remember where the hwy 100 entrance is. See you there.

    Sounds good to me. I'll be there. I ran it Sunday evening but went the other way around. I will say it seemed easier that way. I was by myself. I ran the trail in 55 min. I'd like to get it down to a 10 min pace but those inclines get brutal.

    Tyler and I will be there. I'm looking for a good loop on that paved road too. Probably about the same mileage. Have y'all tried that yet?

    :) I ran it again sunday morning the same way. I shaved off 10min. I think because it was a little more familiar to me. I discovered that wet roots are a wee bit slippery. I'm padded well so it didn't hurt too much.

    Looks like rain, but I'll be there unless it's lightning at 530.

    Pffft, What is this "rain" you speak of? Maybe a little high humidity, think nothing of it.

    I'll be there in the morning. If anyone is coming at 6, let me know and I'll look for you.
