We rode this trail in May 2023. We accessed the northwest end of the trail via Freeland Station Road. It appears that the trail continues past this point but it is not shown on the map. We followed the trail northeast, east and southeast towards downtown Nashville. After a few miles we passed several homeless encampments in the wooded areas. When we reached the downtown area near 2nd St and Cement Plant Road we were met with construction debris. We found no clear description of where we were, where we might go and what we might see. We returned to the trailhead.
Prior to reaching the homeless encampment, the paved trail follows the curve of the river. Wildlife is visible on and along the river.
It would have been great if the trail were marked and we would have been able to ride the trail into the Broadway downtown area, Ryman Auditorium, etc.
This trail is paved and easy to ride. Beautiful trail. I loved every part of it. It connects several parks together. Lots of shady areas and resting places.
We loved this ride and found it extra fun to bike down an old airplane runway!
Great short trail for cycling and walking. Lots of bikes but rules are clearly posted/stated and most everyone is courteous except for a few cyclist who like to “flex” their riding & speed skills for everyone to see! More crowded on weekends but great for morning rides before the walking crowd arrives. The nature center is worth a visit too! Good parking areas
Wow! We were so happy to connect not only with this trail but also the Shelby Bottoms trail to make a 15 mile route from our East Nashville rental! Great scenery and super cool bridges .
We totally enjoyed this ride on the river !
I rode this greenway back in the summer and one of the interesting aspects was the herd of goats that keep the vegetation on the levee in check. I rode again in February and was not surprised to see that the goats were not out there, nothing to eat this time of year. But I am curious. What happens to those goats when winter rolls in and the vegetation dies?
Absolutely gorgeous scenery. Also, a few restaurants are accessible from the trail!
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!
Nice trail, rode it on a Wednesday with very few people using it. Tent city was a surprise but didn't see anyone there. Really quite and peaceful ridd
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!
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.
