Mammoth Cave Railroad Bike & Hike Trail

Through the woods and up and down the hills to the cave we go

September, 2022 by bikin-mike

I agree with the previous review about starting at the south end on Zion Cemetery Rd; however, be aware that there is only room for about 1 or 2 cars there (see photo). You can park just north of there on Mammoth Cave Pkwy, but only have about 5 spots there (see photo).

Nice wooded ride. Rode it on our hybrids with no problems. Several signs about the history of the railroad and the area. 2 or 3 steep hills….I got off and pushed. Bone shaking ride if you go down them fast. Trail definitely diverged from the old railroad grade 😀

Our original plan was to bike up the Visitor Center and take a cave tour, but read about boot wash when exiting the cave and didn’t want to bike in boots. Turns out the wash barely got the soles wet. Could have done the tour in sneakers. Saw folks doing it in flip-flops.

Grab your coat, hop on your bike, ride to a great cave tour. A unique Kentucky experience. Enjoy….bikin-mike…Aug 2022

Barren River Lake State Resort Park

lots of shade and bumps

August, 2022 by erkentucky

This short trail is all paved, but has lots of root bumps! Has a long down hill stretch, but it is full of bumps, so you can’t really enjoy it . It’s also easy to confuse the golf cart paths with the trail at times.

Nice ride good even pavement w gradual inclines mostly flat. Saw two wild turkeys or saw one wild turkey twice. Not many people on trail. No soap or tissue at Central City trailhead restroom. A little confused finding trailhead on Greenville side

White House Greenway

Awesome Trail

April, 2022 by dpc1025

Great trail for walking your dog, jogging, and biking. 3.6 miles from one end to the other. It is not a loop so you will need to turn around and retrace your steps to get back to the trailhead you parked at. There are 5 trailheads along the route to choose from. There is creek water for your dog to grab a drink from but most of it is along the middle part of the trail. All asphalt with 2 challenging hills, one in each direction of the trail. We live in White House and walk our dog here several times a week.

Town Creek Greenway

great trail

March, 2022 by jpetho59

We rode bikes on this trail today. Started in Triple Creek Park but didn’t ride the entire trail. The trail is mostly concrete but some asphalt and is in good condition. They did a great job putting an underpass in so we didn’t have to cross the intersection of Broadway and Albert Gallatin. We’d ride this anytime we’re in the area. Triple Creek Park also has a great continuation of the trail.

Town Creek Greenway

Great trail

March, 2022 by jpetho59

Rode part of this trail from Triple Creek Park. Did not ride the entire trail, but it’s a great trail. Some asphalt and some concrete. All paved. A lot of bike path is in the park. Nice facilities for bathrooms. Nice underpass to avoid crossing major road at

Springfield Greenway

beautiful peaceful easy ride !

October, 2021 by cheyenne.smith.lmt

My husband and I chose this greenway ( Springfield) to try yesterday in celebration of our wedding anniversary ¿¿¿¿. We are new to Trail Link and this is our second trail. It was perfect ! Weather gorgeous doesn’t hurt .¿Some adorable dogs with their people walking and a couple of other cyclists but not crowded at all. Will go back!

Barren River Lake State Resort Park

Could be a great trail, they need to re-pave about 2/3rds of the trail. Really bumpy with some of the ruts 2 to 3 + inches high. It has good shade and good uphill.

October, 2021 by jefflee1

The first 2/3 are down hill which is nice but as the previous person stated the trails are littered with tree ruts that have raised the pavement 2 to 3+ inches in some spots the rest of the trail is a nice little workout

Springfield Greenway

Awesome surprise!

May, 2021 by west.shannon2289

It was a bit of a drive from Nashville but well worth it! The wife and I try to do a different Greenway every weekend and this one was well worth the drive. Tons of country views as well as bits of history along the way. To our surprise there was a farmers market going on half way back to our car. Great people and great “Love adventure” as we like to call them! 100% going back to this one!
