Muhlenberg County Rail-Trail

Great local and public trail

December, 2016 by bronson23_vincent

I'm in the military and have actually taken the Army Physical Fitness Test on this trail. We run 2 miles for record so they have a white posted line past Powderly to start from and will run to where the trail starts in Greenville across from Clarks Appliance Center. Soldiers like to take the running part of the PT Test there because instead of the normal 8 laps in a circle rubbing elbows with 60 other Soldiers it's a 1 way start to end run and halfway, 1 mile mark, you can see the finish line and mentally makes you more confident and run harder and Soldiers really improve their time. Also I have ridden the the trail several times on bicycle along with my children and have never had any trouble. We always ride up and back and stop at the swamp area to go up on the deck and view the wildlife. It is maintained well and has a lot of neat interesting features along the way. It is truly great having this in our local community and we are very fortunate.

Beautiful walk/run

Kid-friendly, beautiful views especially in the summer and fall, dog-friendly. Distance between Garner and Travis Price parks is approximately 2 miles in between.

Mammoth Cave Railroad Bike & Hike Trail

Pleasant trail & ride

May, 2016 by kykevin

Mammoth Cave R.R. Trail:
This trail is 80 percent under a tall tree canopy. Nice and shaded. There was a light rain most of the day. A constant misting. The canopy kept us pretty dry. That same canopy will be very welcome during the hot summer months. The gravel trail width varies from 5’ to 10’. Most areas it is 6’ to 8’ wide. Branches encroach the width every so often and necessitate single file riding. The gravel was very small, similar to d.g.a. (dense gravel aggregate), nicely compacted. Not many washouts and not many sections of loose gravel. The rather small blue background distance markers need new white paint. Branches should also be cut back to improve visibility of these signs. We cycled this trail in mid May and the maintenance crews had probably not cut anything back yet. There are not many mileage markers going the other direction, toward the visitor center. Need to also spray some weed killer at the Southern end. I rated this trail a four because there are no r.r. trestles / bridges nor great vistas. The beautiful hardwood canopy is very pleasant. The trail has minor grades except for at least one of the three marked hills. Most will simply walk their bike the top portion of that grade. It is a great one day ride. There are no available shuttles. If you can’t physically ride the full 20 miles, you can park in one of a couple small parking lots between the two ends of the trail. Head in either direction and bike back to get a few miles in. If you still have the energy and are so inclined, head the other direction and back to complete the entire 20 miles (9-10 miles each way). Some in you party may pass on the entire and bug out after doing the half route.

Big Hollow Trail:
Never got to this one. You must take a ferry across the Green River. This is a steel cable, tethered, single auto at a tim, ferry. The lines were only four cars deep each side, but it would have probably taken 30-40 minutes each direction. We were short on time and took a pass. We contemplated biking across on the next ferry but were informed of the 3 mile long, steep grade, just West of the river, to get to the trail head. One in our party, who had been nursing a cramp, quickly nixed that idea.

DOGS

February, 2016 by ttroutt

I have been going there for the past 2 and half years with my dog and as far as I know there have never been problems with dogs before. However I was told today that in a couple of weeks that "big dogs" would be required to be muzzled while walking on the greenway. There is NO other park or trail in Tennessee that I know of that requires this and there is NO way I am muzzling my dog on a hot day! We will not be going to that greenway any longer.

Old Hickory Dam Greenway

Old Hickory Dam Greenway

August, 2015 by cherylnotwork

Gorgeous, well maintained trail over wetlands and surrounded by towering trees that keep it cool even in the heat. If you are lucky, you'll see the resident eagles whose nest is adjacent to the trail. I'd give it 5 stars, but there is a strip mine being built right next to it. Developers are being held up temporarily from further bulldozing by local, state and federal agencies who are investigating. Hopefully you will join the fight to help save the Old Hickory Dam Greenway. For more information see https://www.facebook.com/StopOldHickoryLakeQuarry

Thank you.

Mammoth Cave Railroad Bike & Hike Trail

Nice easy trail except for a couple of steep areas

April, 2015 by r1150gs01

Rode most of the trail yesterday. It's still a bit stark since the leaves haven't popped yet. Nice trail but much of it is parallel to the main road and not much into the wilderness.

Great Dog Walking Trail

April, 2015 by thefarnival.com

Beautiful trail. It's actually four miles, and you can extend it to five if you explore the soccer fields, playground, and hills at Travis Price Park. We walk our pups there daily.

Great trail

Lots of slopes with one killer one at the end. Loads of fun, some slight declines on the trail

Great trail-looks newly improved!

December, 2014 by machar

We took our dogs to walk the trail from southern trailhead in Greenville to just past Powderly, maybe 2 miles. The parking area is right next to US62 just as you come into Greenville from the northeast. When you see the green caboose and covered bridge the parking is the next right. This section is lighted with many benches available to rest. It looked like the trail had recently been widened (previous comment said it was narrow) to about 10 feet and repaved. Very level, easy walking. There are no facilities on the trail, but many fast food places across the highway in this section. It does go through an area of older, run down homes, but it was very open and we felt safe walking there. If you take your dogs on this trail please be sure to have them leashed securely as there is lots of open farmland and a busy highway they could get lost in. Hope to be able to go the whole 6 miles on our bikes sometime and see the rest of the trail!

White House Greenway

Awesome Trail!

November, 2013 by machar

We walked this trail on 11/3/13 with our two dogs. Absolutely wonderful trail, all paved, mostly level and wide. Lots of access points all around White House with lots of parking. Trailhead at White House High School has a port-a-potty and seating/bike racks. That is the only facilities we saw on our 2.25 mile one way trek. But many local business nearby the trailheads for stops. Scheduled to be extended and complete a loop through the White House Municipal Park where this is a connector trail already in this very nice park. Wish we lived closer so we could use more often. We live in Kentucky about an hour from here, but it was an easy drive and easy to find the Trailheads with the map on the White House Parks & Rec website.
