What a great trail to unwind. No difficult passages. Well shaded and surface is smooth.
Smooth trail. Not too many road crossings. Lovely scenery.
I can’t wait to take this all the way down to the Mississippi River when done!!!
great easy ride ... nice varying views .woods, commerce, old remnants ... nice it's all paved.nice it has a spot to cross heavy traffic...
Pleasant and interesting ride near the river. Most of the trail is shaded. There are restrooms and water near the main trailhead about the center of the trail. It is easy to get confused where you are as there are a number of loops. I rode all the trails and loops in this section and totaled 12 miles.
There is a connector to Shelby Park where you can ride around a lake on s separate bike trail and adds about 5 miles to the ride.
Trail pavement is in excellent condition except for a few tree roots. The half of the trail close to downtown is densely shaded, and gets dark early in the evening. No water or toilets unless you detour into Shelby Park.
No guide is needed as the trail is an old rail line and you can't get lost.
In brief, the trail quality and quantity are absolutely fabulous! However, the lack of directional signs is totally disgusting. Therefore I would give the trail quality five stars and one star for the lack of directional signs. If a person could navigate, they would have the time of their lives-bicycling That is!
Started at Tillman around 8 and did the entire trail out and back. Amazing scenery and wonderful smells. Flowers in full bloom and the birds singing. Flat and easy, don’t miss the trail if your in the area.
This is a very nice and well planned out bike or hike trail. Lots of scenic benches off the path to rest/relax and enjoy the view. A few short bridges, each unique, that cross back and forth over parts of the river. Has a very comforting and cozy feel. Nature and Modern Conservation at its best.
We walked four miles on this trail. It's nicely shaded in most areas. There is a camera and voice that welcomes you at the end where the rest room is. We look forward to returning and walking a different direction.
Really enjoy this trail. Mostly flat once out of Shelby farms. Inside the farm expect several hills.. just finish Shelby farms make over the park is awesome
We ride this trail every time we visit our daughter at college. One can make this trail as long or short as one likes since it borders Shelby Farm Park which has other trails. We've found nice places to eat toward mid-town (favorite Cheffie's Cafe) and there's some places along North Germantown Pkwy on the other end. The new section is nice. Looking forward to riding The Big River Crossing over the Mississippi. It was opening the weekend after our last trip.
