Murfreesboro's Stones River Greenway System

Wonderful Scenic Ride

October, 2022 by let3322

My husband and I rode this trail for the first time and were so happy we discovered it! Not only did we enjoy a peaceful, scenic ride along the river, there is plenty of civil war landmarks along the way to learn about. The 10 mile ride runs through a historic battlefield, a park with picnic benches, and golf course, so there are plenty of places to stop along the way if you wish. When we went, a portion of the bridge that connects to the trail on over the river was closed on both sides due to current repair and maintenance so we were a bit disappointed, however, we jumped in our car and found the trail that continued on the other side and finished up that part of the trail which was worth it!

Mountain Goat Trail

Nice trail mostly under shade trees!

August, 2022 by wford1

This trail is very accessible. Can park in a lot at the trailhead in Swanee. Old railroad bed that has been paved. Slight elevation contours and relatively straight. Coupled it with a really good ride at the Universities’s campus. Very quaint and beautiful campus. Rode when school was not in session so we had unobstructed ride. Great little sandwich shops downtown. Would recommend all the above.

Extended beyond the map in 2019!

August, 2022 by cq75fdtjgm

This is an awesome trail. It was extended beyond Hwy 99, south, all the way to Barfield park. If you start at Barfield, Thompson or Canonsburg, you can easily get 30 miles in doing an out and back to rack terminus.

Great trail for a new rider

May, 2022 by dianeking33

We completed from Thomson Lane to Barfield Crescent (20 mi total). This is a well maintained path with plenty of places to stop for breaks and pictures. I’m fairly new to bike riding and found everything easy to maneuver.

Historic Bridgeport Walking Trail

Bridgeport Walking Trail

August, 2021 by brucebeach

Trail is one mile out, and one mile back(you have to make the roundtrip). You walk up an incline from the railway station parking lot, about 75 yards or less, and the rest of the walk is flat. The first half thru the park is almost all in the shade and then the walk across the bridge/river is all in the sun. Very beautiful, peaceful, an easy stroll for older people, like my wife and I. If you find yourself in the Bridgeport, Alabama area, I would highly reccomend.

Trojan Trail

Bring your pooch on a leash; remember to pickup after pup. It's HGHS property, but they are nice enough to keep it open to the community - people and pups.

favorite trail

October, 2020 by mitch.whitlock

12 miles of trail from Thompson lane to Barfield park. Some areas are more congested than others, but overall not crowded. Add in the battlefield trails and Gateway Island loop for pretty scenery and a history lesson. There are multiple trailheads for access across the entire town. Several of the trailheads have public restrooms that are reasonably clean.

Mountain Goat Trail

The current section is about five miles and goes through the woods. Very scenic.

In-line skating the trails

September, 2020 by rmaron

These trails have a LOT going for them, but strictly for skating I give them only 3 stars.

The asphalt is in good shape in terms of not having very many root cracks, but roughly half of it was paved using course aggregate. There is a lot of vibration of the wheels going over it. Not smooth pavement that is a pleasure to skate on.

The trail is well shaded, and that keeps it cool. But it also delays evaporation of water off the pavement. The day I skated it (in late afternoon) there were many wet/damp spots. These were very slippery.

change

It’s asphalt now not crushed stone. Great for runs after school or walks.
