A wonderful trail with a pleasant amount of walkers and bikers on a Saturday morning. Gorgeous tree lined path with picturesque bridges. Love this one!

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!

Cumberland River Greenway

Interesting ride

September, 2022 by caldwellws

I biked from Ted Rhodes golf course to Titans stadium. The levee section is nice and the downtown section is interesting. This one is not my favorite greenway in the Nashville area but I am glad I took the time to ride it.

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

Peeler Park Greenway

beautiful place to bike

August, 2022 by haslex

Went to peeler for the first time this morning. My boyfriend and I have been trying to get into biking and this was our first ride. We got there early and only saw 2 other people at the beginning of the trail. The green space is beautiful and you forget you’re close to the city. We saw 9 deer and 4 turkeys on our ride. Will definitely be going back.

They pieced this Greenway perfectly throughout the years.

Murfreesboro's Stones River Greenway System

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.

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.
