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.

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.

Richard Martin Trail

Great trail

April, 2017 by landondykes

This trail was nice… Mostly flat… Clear… And wide. We did the full 10.2 miles each way… Very scenic… This is a very well-kept trail… With very nice bathrooms at the start and at the end.

We started from the Piney Chapel Rd parking lot in Athens, Alabama.

Loved the town of Elkton...there is a really quaint Creamery right next to the trail that has a nice, covered picnic area and they sell amazing goat cheese!!!

We will definitely do this trail again!!!

Mill Creek Greenway - A better location for walking, running, bicycling

February, 2017 by vanheydenauthor

Didn't know that crayfish were indigenous to Mill Creek, spotted a 5 foot (plus) heron day before yesterday wading in the creek and then it took off majestically southward, (almost got it on camera-damn), and I find it comforting and very pleasant a walk/run along the stream most anytime. And don't let us forget the smaller birds that flourish there abundantly. Can meet individuals of like mind, have conversations, who would have thought?
Where's my mountain bike, Santa!?

Murfreesboro's Stones River Greenway System

Scary & Unsafe

December, 2016 by cleonard_tl

Use to walk the Thompson Lane Trail Head often. Now the trail is so overgrown and out of control, that it is scary for women to walk alone in fear of predators hiding in weeds and bushes. Just is not a safe place anymore.

overgrown

November, 2016 by flippy040362

Years ago I use to walk my dog on this trail every day and admire the beauty of the river, What happened? I visited the trail after leaving the area for a few years and I cant even see the river now it is so over grown! I would love to put together a clean up crew/group to revive the view of the river!

Shelby Bottoms Greenway

Gem of a trail

November, 2016 by david.laferney

It's a great park-trail experience with no substantial hills except (optionally) if you cross the pedestrian bridge over the Cumberland river. The trails and the parking area have a very safe feel to them. Bring your own water!

My Wife, 11-year-old Grandaughter, and I started from the parking lot under the railroad trestle in Shelby park. We rode North on the main trail - crossed the pedestrian bridge to wave country - then continued to the north end of the park, around the north loop, then returned to Shelby park. Just under 10 miles including a bit of messing around in the parking lots to check out our gear. There are other paved connectors and side trails that you could explore if you have the time and inclination.

The trail going up to the pedestrian bridge, and on - through a tunnel under the interstate -to the trailhead at wave country are pretty steep - but very much worth the effort. As we were crossing the bridge, the General Jackson river boat passed under it for a great photo op - and the return ride down the long hill is great fun. Just make sure your brakes are in working order first!

As others have mentioned - use the bathroom before you start and bring enough water.

The reason I give this trail less than 5 stars is that even though it's a great trail, and well worth the (2hr) drive to get to it - it just doesn't have the level of spectacular scenery or interesting landscapes - like the Virginia Creeper, or Chattanooga river park trail. Still - a great resource for mid-TN recreational bikers.
