Richland Creek Greenway is one of many forming Nashville's system of greenways throughout the city. Nashville's greenways link neighborhoods, schools, shopping areas, the downtown area, offices, recreation areas, open spaces and other points of interest.
The Richland Creek Greenway is a multi-use trail that connects the neighborhoods of Sylvan Park and Cherokee Park with the shopping centers, entertainment areas and schools along White Bridge Pike via three access spurs. The greenway makes nearly a complete loop around McCabe Park, and a 1-mile portion of it follows the railroad tracks between White Bridge Pike and Cherokee Road.
Rail history buffs will want to stop at the White Bridge Road trailhead, where there is a historical marker for Dutchman’s Curve, the site of the Great Train Wreck of 1918, one of the worst rail accidents in the county's history.
You can access the greenway at the following locations:
- Old White Bridge trailhead, 230 Kenner Avenue N.
- White Bridge Road trailhead, 22 White Bridge Road
- Lion's Head trailhead, 26 White Bridge Road
- Neighborhood Connector, 4617 Sloan Road
- Wyoming trailhead, 101 46th Avenue N.
