Richland Creek Greenway

As Henry David Thureau once said - A walk a day keeps the Doc away!

May, 2018 by pink_tl

To take my mind of the chaos of the world we live in, I walk the Richland Creek Greenway each and every afternoon. The scenic creek crossings and the meandering trails can put even the most-troubled minds at ease. The wide paths allow bikers, runners, walkers, dogs, children, and strollers to easily maneuver.

Peeler Park Greenway

Empty

The trail really never have anyone there, so far this year I've seen more snakes than people and some were nice length. Nice park hate to see it go to waste

Peeler Park Greenway

Peeler park

April, 2018 by annab4654

Walk 2 or 3 times a week for years recently had a fall or the trail resulting in broken wrist, walking again and doing fine I love peeler park, very close to my home it's clean and I encourage everybody to own this space and pick up trash if necessary I just wonder if anything can be done about the lowlying areas that stay moist all the time , moss and algae are very slick and dangerous
A lot of older folks walk there and we want them including myself to be safe. Would love a response. Thanks for our wonderfful greenway Bridgette wakefield

Richard Martin Trail

My third ride had to be abandoned

April, 2018 by augustwalk

I'm late with this review, but the previous two reviews prompted me to add mine now. I went for my third on this trail in late 2017. As my earlier reviews stated, I had really nice rides. But not this one. I started at the northern trailhead and only went maybe a couple of miles before turning back because the trail was in such horrible shape. As stated in the two previous reviews by markmoore and Old Terry, there were lots of very large rocks to contend with which made the ride very unpleasant. I kept waiting for signs that things were going to get better, but that didn't happen and finally I just gave it up and turned back and got on the road alongside the trail as soon as possible. I had driven over an hour to get there, so I was quite disappointed. The short stretch of trail on the north end between the trailhead and the woods has always been the roughest section, but it was tolerable. But this time it was really bad even far into the woods. Apparently no trail maintenance at all had been done for quite some time. As the Mad Tweeter might say - Sad!

I would like to try the trail again sometime this year, but will not unless I know it will be in better shape for biking. Hopefully someone can give an update here on the condition of the trail at the north end.

Oh, and there are indeed dogs again at the house by the trailhead. They were in a fenced-in yard and I don't recall having any problems with them - not even being barked at - but they are there again.

Cumberland River Bicentennial Trail

Great trail

December, 2017 by thairq

Love this trail. Several area with creek that is great for summer with pouch. They will walk a mile or so and get a cold dip. Also most of the trail is very shady. Cuts down on the summer heat about 10 degree.

Shelby Bottoms Greenway

One of the best in Nashville

December, 2017 by thairq

Very clean. Paved with ' wilderness' off shoots out you want more secluded trails with lots of shade. Good for hit summer as there are several water station at end of trail and a couple off creeks where dogs can take a dip to cool off.
Just wish more people would clean up after their pets. Probably better clean up effort of they put a couple more trash cans.

Stones River Greenway

Stones River Greenway is one of the best bike trails in Tennessee

November, 2017 by huxtablewp

I have been riding this paved trail once or twice a year for the past 15 years. It is generally flat to gently rolling but has a couple of short but hard hills that you may opt to walk your bike up. The Stones River Greenway starts at Percy Priest Dam. This river has a rich history including an unsuccessful land grab plot by Aaron Burr and earlier an indian massacre. It is a beautiful ride along the river and a wonderful bike bridge across the Cumberland River. If you get to the bridge at the right time, stop, you will see the largest Riverboat in the country, the 300 ft General Jackson, glide beneath the bike bridge. On the days when it is running in November and December, the boat should be there around 12:20 p.m. and 1:40 p.m. The bridge takes you to a large marshy area called Metcalf Bottoms which is very flat but there are many paved trails and a bike path that can take you all the way to downtown Nashville and beyond for a few miles. My wife and I usually eat some crab at Joes Crab Shack in downtown Nashville. It isn't a fancy restaurant but the crab is very good and so is the service! the Crab Shack even let us bring a bike inside.

Cumberland River Greenway

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.

Brookmeade Greenway

Could be great...

September, 2017 by brian.kell

There are shopping carts everywhere and a homeless community in the back. You can not walk to the back without being bothered. I called Parks and recreation and they said "we know." Not that anything is being done about it. Someone please do something!

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.

Cumberland River Bicentennial Trail

We will be back!

September, 2017 by markmoore006

According to Map My Ride the path is 7 miles from Mark's Creek TH to Lock A campground. 14 miles round trip. The path is blacktop all the way from Mark's Creek TH to Eagle Pass TH. After that, it's crushed rock. There is one dip on the rock portion that most will want to walk their bike through unless you are comfortable on a mountain bike and then it is pretty fun. 99% of the path is flat. My wife has a hybrid bike with street tires and it handled just fine on the gravel. The blacktop is pretty smooth except for a few places where tree roots have bucked up the pavement. The whole path is shaded with rock bluffs on one side and water to the other. The most scenic spot is a long bridge that crosses Sycamore Creek. I don't know what future plans are for this trail but we hope to see this trail continue to expand along the Cumberland River.
