Richland Creek Greenway

Bad for inline skating / rollerblading

September, 2023 by vanantwj

This trail is listed as good for in-line skating, but a large section of the trail is very rough / old pavement, and much of the rest of it has long hills and sharp turns.

Richard Martin Trail

great trails!

Rougher on the Elkmont to Tn line but still nice. The other side was really good with slight elevation.

Murfreesboro's Stones River Greenway System

Historical ride along the river

July, 2023 by eric420

Fun paved pave along the Stones River thru Civil war battle sites. Ride thru shaded canopies, under bridges over bridges, winding thru field. Deer jumping across the trails. Bunny rabbits hopping around in the fields. Great ride at sunset to dark. Enjoy!


Murfreesboro's Stones River Greenway System

Great Trail

June, 2023 by caldwellws

Took the opportunity to ride this trail and glad I did. This greenway is wide, shady with lots of nice scenery. I looped it end to end with the connecting trail for a 25 mile ride. It is now on my list of favorites in the Middle Tennessee area.

Cumberland River Greenway

Trail Needs Some Maintenance

May, 2023 by bcrinehart735

We rode this trail in May 2023. We accessed the northwest end of the trail via Freeland Station Road. It appears that the trail continues past this point but it is not shown on the map. We followed the trail northeast, east and southeast towards downtown Nashville. After a few miles we passed several homeless encampments in the wooded areas. When we reached the downtown area near 2nd St and Cement Plant Road we were met with construction debris. We found no clear description of where we were, where we might go and what we might see. We returned to the trailhead.

Prior to reaching the homeless encampment, the paved trail follows the curve of the river. Wildlife is visible on and along the river.

It would have been great if the trail were marked and we would have been able to ride the trail into the Broadway downtown area, Ryman Auditorium, etc.

Brentwood Parks Trail System

one of my favorite trails

May, 2023 by hollygoines

This trail is paved and easy to ride. Beautiful trail. I loved every part of it. It connects several parks together. Lots of shady areas and resting places.

Shelby Bottoms Greenway

We loved this ride and found it extra fun to bike down an old airplane runway!

Richard Martin Trail

Great trail

I love this trail, me and friends have taken my horses here many times and it’s always been so nice, the trails are great for horses other than the few times you have to cross the roads.

Shelby Bottoms Greenway

Great trail

February, 2023 by k.bridges

Great short trail for cycling and walking. Lots of bikes but rules are clearly posted/stated and most everyone is courteous except for a few cyclist who like to “flex” their riding & speed skills for everyone to see! More crowded on weekends but great for morning rides before the walking crowd arrives. The nature center is worth a visit too! Good parking areas

Stones River Greenway

great trail

February, 2023 by bigbarnbrewing

Wow! We were so happy to connect not only with this trail but also the Shelby Bottoms trail to make a 15 mile route from our East Nashville rental! Great scenery and super cool bridges .

Cumberland River Greenway

great ride on the river

February, 2023 by bigbarnbrewing

We totally enjoyed this ride on the river !

Cumberland River Greenway

Where are the goats?

February, 2023 by caldwellws

I rode this greenway back in the summer and one of the interesting aspects was the herd of goats that keep the vegetation on the levee in check. I rode again in February and was not surprised to see that the goats were not out there, nothing to eat this time of year. But I am curious. What happens to those goats when winter rolls in and the vegetation dies?
