Mammoth Cave Railroad Bike & Hike Trail

Beautiful Trail

October, 2017 by dlpeterson

Agree with previous reviews. Probably would have been better with mountain bike. Managed with hybrids. Beautiful and shaded. Rode from Zion Cemetery Rd to visitors center and return. Trail in great shape for most part, some loose gravel and sand made for moments of white knuckle ride.

White House Greenway

Nice ups and downs

October, 2017 by markmoore006

Can I give it 10 Stars? My Wife and I were out visiting different Greenways and today was our first time riding this one. We Loved it! Nice creeks along the way and there is not much flat at all. Some really nice ups to get your lungs and legs feeling it and some fun downs so make sure your breaks are not too worn out. Nothing at all boring about this path. We will be back to this one for sure!

Muhlenberg County Rail-Trail

Trail is a Jewel in west central Kentucky

September, 2017 by cfswenty

My wife and I rode the trail up and back from Greenville to Central City on September 9, 2017. Trail head parking in both Greenville and Central City is paved, convenient, and safe. Trail is paved and about 8-10 feet wide. Most of the trail is flat or gradual slopes, except a short steep hill near Central City. Vegetation along the sides of the trail was mowed and well kept. Old bridges near the wetlands do not have guard rails but trail is wide across the bridges. Lots of benches along the way. There are a few road crossings near Greenville but not hazardous. The trail is off the interstate and parkway corridors. It is not long but is a hidden gem.

Wonderful scenic trail. Agree that mountain bikes are best but we had hybrid tires and got along fine. Great experience and glad to add it to our list. A few steep climbs, but most of it is a moderate ride. I do think the trail could be marked better as there are lots of spurs. We had the trail map that kept is on the main route.

Amazing!

May, 2017 by courtney990

Extremely unique and beautiful trail. Love visiting the ducks/geese. However few kids ruined the enjoyment by kicking one. But the trail loops around the town, and it is actually longer if you visit the soccer field and distillery. Kid and pet friendly ;)

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.

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.
