I absolutely love this trail and can’t wait until my work day is over so I can workout in the beauty of this magnificent trail. Get in the game! Let’s go! This trail is where it’s at.

Cadiz Railroad Trail

route very bumpy

June, 2022 by qvmh8ysqhv

Ok route. I would recommended parking in the school lot. Otherwise you cross a busy road. Need a trail, hybrid or mountain for the trail by the railroad

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

Cumberland River Bicentennial Trail

River ride

March, 2022 by bobbowser

Beautiful trail along the Cumberland River. The trail is paved and gravel. It also links to the Cheatham Damn Park and Campground. This is an older trail and pavement is bumpy and gravel part can be rough. All and all, this is a great trail for cycling or hiking!

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!

Lake Barkley Bridge Multiuse Path

Land between the Lakes

July, 2021 by glsxoomer_tl

On the Fenton side of the Island, the west side, the paved part of the trail extends west from the Fenton TH over the bridge and ends at approximately 1.3 miles. From the Fenton Trail Head to the Sunset Trail Head is not paved. From Fenton to Sunset is not paved, 8.2 miles. From Sunset Trail Head headed east over the east bridge is approximately 3.3 miles. From that point, east is approximately 6 paved miles.

We hiked from the Fenton side to the Golden Pond Visitors Center, which is 4.2 miles, round trip 8.4 miles. We rode our bikes on the east and west paved sides but did not ride on the paved area on the east side of the east bridge that is on the north side of the highway.

We loved the hiking and biking on this trail. You can bike the unpaved trail, but you need to be skilled enough to do that. We are in our 70s and tried to bike the first mile on the west side headed east but turned back. We give this trail both paved and gravel a 5. It is a very good trail to hike. We cannot comment on the North-South Trail.

We estimate the total length of this trail with the approximate 6 miles on the east side to of the east bridge ar around 16 miles plus.

Cumberland River Bicentennial Trail

Two parking areas: (1) Eagles Pass parking area is between the paved section and the gravel sections of this R & T. The gravel part is around 2.5 miles to the west and ends in an RV park with a short ride that continues behind the basketball court as you enter the RV park on the first part of the gravel trail. About halfway there is a steep dip and incline, be careful. There are a lot of roots. It is not crushed rock, it is gravel. This kind of gravel is what is used on normal vehicle roads. A short section is controlled by the military and is fenced on both sides and not kept up. (2) The paved section is just at 4 miles long. It has a fair number of bulges in the pavement but not overbearing. The path is wide and scenic. We loved the paved section. There are around 7 bridges, all on the paved side, (two long ones), good place for pictures. We can't give it a 5 because of the gravel section and the roots. It is worth everyone's experience, but not one we will necessarily visit repeatedly.

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!

Clarksville Greenway

Wow, what a really nice trail. Nearly all the trail has canopy and we rode when the foliage was turning. Saw turkey and deer while riding. Great overlooks with swings to take a break and look at the scenery. Diffently a 5 star trail.

Lake Barkley Bridge Multiuse Path

a real jewel

November, 2020 by davemarshall54

After a barge knocked this bridge down at Lake Barkley and Land Between the Lakes in Kentucky they rebuilt it with a gorgeous new bridge with a dedicated bike path. The scenery is gorgeous, as is the lake. There is currently construction underway to expand it quite a bit. Worth the trip
