Cumberland River Greenway

Kbeegee

October, 2017 by britysdad

We are visiting the Nashville area from Iowa & I wanted to get in a short ride. Very nice trail. Well maintained. Good trail markers. Love the Cumberland river section. The sheep added to the experience. Nice to see barges navigating the river.

Richard Martin Trail

3 1/2 Stars

September, 2017 by markmoore006

It is listed as 10.2 but my GPS came up with 11 miles (22 round trip). It is a good one for solitude for sure. The small town of Elmont is basically right in the middle and makes for a nice rest stop. Except for Elkmont, AL and a couple of covered bridges there isn't much diversity along the entire trail. It's a 1 1/2 hour drive for me so I probably wont be back unless more is added to it.
I started at the Tennessee line TH and went to Athens and back. Within the first 1/4 mile a big black dog ran at me from the front of a house. He didn't have the cardio to keep up but something to watch for when near the Tennessee TH.
The path is compacted gravel like a driveway that's seen lots of use. The Athens half is pretty smooth but I was glad to be on a mountain bike for the other half. Occasional rough spots to beware of with some random big chunky rocks.
There was one road crossing I wasn't sure where the trail went and had to break out the phone to view the trail. Turned out it was straight across the road but hard to be sure because it was more grass than gravel. A little trail blaze would be nice there.

Richard Martin Trail

Good double track trail for Mtn. Bike or Hybred Bike

September, 2017 by OldTerry

Rode today (Sept. 8, 2017) from the start in Athens to the end at the Tennessee state line and return to Athens. Very enjoyable with plenty of solitude. This type of trail will keep you on your toes as you must look carefully for obstacles (limbs, ruts and one area that had numerous loose fist sized chunks of rock). Very enjoyable trail to ride but I would advise caution.

Stones River Greenway

Great place to get outdoors

September, 2017 by mattyo_82

Today I parked at the Stewart's Ferry Trailhead to take our dog out on a run. Plenty of parking, good facilities and a wonderful place to run or walk!

Richard Martin Trail

Gravel Love

August, 2017 by tim.keen

My wife and I cycled the Richard Martin Rails-to-Trails for a weekend in August of 2017. We prefer the gravel trails and find them to be more interesting with a slight bit of challenge tossed into the experience. We rode the trail on 2 Salsa Vayas ' Multi-Surface' bikes equipped with 38mm & 40mm tubeless CX tires and found them to be perfect for the entire route, which is primarily hardpacked dirt & gravel surface that rolls fast.

We loved the trail due to its slightly remote feeling, overall condition, tree canopy & minimal road crossings. It's quickly become our 'close to home' favorite! We rode it's entire length as out & backs for 2 days. GPS mileage was 22 miles for the total trail out & back.

We stayed up in Veto at the Mill Creek RV Park and found it to be pleasant, clean & quiet. We were the only 'weekend use' campers there, with some sites populated be contract workers working at automotive parts manufacturing locations near by. Most had gone home for the weekend, leaving a quiet & safe campground for us. Note: Please don't ring the bell for Margie prior to 10:00AM. Check in is Noon and Margie doesn't stir prior to check-in time.

All of of this made for a wonderful weekend get-a-way with my wife & bicycles!

Richard Martin Trail

Half-Way Fun

August, 2017 by jimofsomerville

Started in Athens and rode to Elkmont then back. Later drive car with bikes back to Elkmont where we toured Belle Chevre goat cheese place then ate at their sandwich shop. Excellent food. Bike trail was excellent, flat and very clean. Plan on starting in Elkmont next and riding North to complete total trek.

Harpeth River Greenway

Nice place to ride

August, 2017 by markmoore006

My wife and I started at Woolwine Trailhead at Edwin Warner Park and cruised to the current end a little over 6 miles away and back, Very nice and scenic route. We are looking forward to seeing this path grow. There is only one part that is an old worn out stretch of blacktop near the beginning at Edwin Warner Park but other than that, it's a very smooth ride.

Stones River Greenway

The best Greenway trail in Nashville

August, 2017 by rosenquiste

Stones River Greenway is dare I say a magical place. It's a place where lives are changed and comradery is exercised. There are so many stunning nature scenes and views. The beautiful stones river by your side as you walk, jog, run or bike. Wooden Posts every .25 miles to show you your progress. You can start at a number of very cool Trailheads. Percy Priest Dam, YMCA, Kohls, McGavock Waterplant/Soccer Fields, Two Rivers Park, etc. This site says the trail is 9 miles one way - but I'd beg to differ on that. I'd say more like 11.5 miles from the Percy Priest Dam to Shelby Bottoms park. It's 8 miles just to the top lookout site after the bridge over the Cumberland. Then another 3.5 to Shelby Bottoms.
I'd like to personally thank all the people that planned and constructed the Stones River Greenway. It has literally changed my life as well as my family and friends. I've gained a lot of great acquaintances as well. I'm down 45 pounds too!

Richard Martin Trail

Tree Tunnel Paradise

June, 2017 by willmarth2

We started in Elkmont at the caboose and traveled south. Beautiful tree tunnel almost all the way to Athens. There are gently sloping hills. We went early in the morning in June and there is a swamp area to the East with green algae that reflects beautifully. Beware of mosquitoes.

Stones River Greenway

Educational ride through tragic Civil War battle of Stones River January 2,3 1863. Don't miss the VI's National PArk BisitorsCenter. Well maintained trim along the river

Mill Creek Greenway (TN)

great connector trail

May, 2017 by tenscsteve

I really enjoy the peacefulness of this Trail. What really makes it great though is that it allows you to connect to all the stores located in Lenox Village and others along the way on Nolensville Pike. You can also easily get to Kroger and Concord Road from there if you cross the street onto Bluff Road you can continue on that into some of the trails in Brentwood.

Richard Martin Trail

Good walk, but not the dogs!!!

May, 2017 by aebetter

Loved my hike including lunch in Elkmont. The dogs in Veto made me most uncomfortable. Won't be back.
