The Murfreesboro's Stones River Greenway System comprises 8.5 miles of linear park trails in the Stones River and Lytle Creek areas. The asphalt trails are 12 feet wide and are paved to allow walking, jogging, rollerblading and bicycling.
The greenway system has several trailheads with parking lots: Thompson Lane, Broad Street, General Bragg, Redoubt Brannon, Manson Pike, Fortress Rosecrans and Cannonsburgh. The General Bragg trailhead has one picnic shelter with four tables and a playground. A recent extension takes the trail south to Salem Pke/SR 99, and parking is available at the end of Cason Trail Road.
A 0.25-mile spur connects the Stones River National Battlefield, Artillery Monument, Fortress Rosecrans, Redoubt Brannan and Cannonsburgh Village, with historic wayside signs and exhibits.

Parts are closed due to the recent tornado damage, but otherwise a very good trail. The facilities appear to be new.
