Buzzing With Activity

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

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.

Richard Martin Trail

Nice Ride on a Hot Fall Day

September, 2022 by whit.w.5918_tl

Was passing through and decided to stop and ride North to South with an added lollipop head on the roads around Athens. Trail was great; I was dreading the heat (upper 80s) but the shade kept things nice and cool!! Surface was a bit rough in places, so not a road bike trail, but a hybrid, mountain bike or gravel bike (my choice) will work well.

Would love to see this trail extended, both south and north.

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.

Richland Creek Greenway

Just Right

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.

Richland Creek Greenway

just moved to Lions Head

Love the trail, especially “Turtle Bridge”, where you can see a lot of cool turtles. My son went out at night and saw a couple of ghosts near the RR Trax. That’s kinda..neat..best part of all Is our new home backs right up to the creek

Richard Martin Trail

Beautiful and bumpy

June, 2022 by catherinebogdon

I’m glad I read the reviews before deciding which bike to bring—it’s pretty bumpy. It’s beautifully secluded when riding on a weekday morning. I only saw two pedestrians and two equestrians during my ten mile ride. It’s completely shaded, nice for a summer ride. There’s a pristine (but a little creepy) swamp on the east side of the trail three miles from the southern trailhead at Coffman-Mitchell Park, and goes for half a mile. Looking east you can’t see where it ends. Gorgeous, but remember to bring insect repellent! Will definitely ride it again, starting g at the halfway point in Elkmont. Elkmont

Stones River Greenway

Cool, Shady and plenty of climbs

June, 2022 by caldwellws

Great trail with plenty of options to make it whatever length you want if you continue on to Shelby Bottoms. Looking forward to riding it in the fall.
