Warner Parks

Burch Reserve/Hill Property

Friends of Warner Parks, in collaboration with Metro Parks, has completed a master plan for the Burch Reserve, which is a portion of the acreage acquire by Friends north of Highway 100. The entire acreage will eventually be added to Edwin Warner Park.

Burch Reserve Master Plan

Mountain Bike Trails

A spin-off from the Burch Reserve planning process has been the identification of approximately 120 acres in Percy Warner Park for the development of new, single-use mountain bike trails. Trails in the north west section of the Park - with future trailheads at Deep Wells and The Percy Warner Golf Course parking lot - are now under construction. 

The trails are now open with a temporary trailhead accessed from the Percy Warner Golf Course near the Cheekwood entrance. The new trailhead and parking lot is scheduled to open in summer 2014.

In response to the need for additional mountain bike trails throughout Davidson County, Metro Parks convened in late 2010 a committee of representatives from IMBA, SORBA and Mayor Dean's Bicycle & Pedestrian Advisory Committee to look countywide at opportunities for mountain bike trail development. The committee is developing a working conceptual master plan that will include priorities and recommendations based on geographic distribution, skill level served, program opportunities and other factors. Planning for the Percy Warner mountain bike trails is being wrapped into this larger planning process. Metro Parks expects to be able to present the plan later this year.
