This greenway is a lovely set of loops and straights, with the bonus of the Cornelia Fort Airpark!
Lots of access points so you can have your pick of riding distance and scenery.
As with many Greenways in the area, it can be very crowded so please be polite and give space to those on foot, calling out ahead of time when you are on your bike!
Starting off from the dam and going to the Cumberland River Pedestrian Bridge is a very pleasant ride. Makes for a great out and back!
Mostly shaded with some beautiful bridges, fields and open spaces. The climb between the Waterworks and McGavock is challenging for new riders but rewarding. Lots of segments to split up the ride if you are limited on time.
Water and restrooms working and plentiful at the dam terminus.
Taking away one star because of the current outage near the Polo Park apartments requiring passing through the apartment complex and then riding surface roads to the trailhead by Kohl's.
It can be very crowded near the terminuses and trailheads so please use caution and call out if you are riding.
This trail is longer than 6.5. From Mark’s Creek Trailhead to Lock A Campground is around 7.5. You can add another 2.5 if you ride to the Cheatham Lock and Dam. You can get about an 18 mile ride in and out. It’s a very beautiful trail!
Very flat, all paved. One dangerous spot is crossing the 440 off-ramp because the cars are flying off that part of the ramp. Great walk leads eight up to the centennial dog park.
The trail is a flat trail following the Cumberland river. Great little path up to the Bridge over the river leading to a more strenuous Stones river trail. Connected to this trail is a disused airport which allows you to get some speed training in.
Shaded and off road this beautiful trail runs along the Stones river. It’s a bit hilly in places but worth the effort. Connects to the Shelby bottoms trail which is less challenging but worthwhile
i started at percy priest dam. very nice paved greenway. there is a bridge out (june 2020) a few miles in, from the dam side. there are a few options for going around it, but nothing all that orthodox. i accessed an apartment complex, then rejoined the greenway at a little ball park. not a huge detour. later, i took wrong turn near the old ravenwood golf course, but if you don't see a sign, just hug the river and that will get you through. otherwise i'd say the signage is good. i'm headed back soon to continue on to shelby bottoms and make a bigger ride out of it.
Love that it’s a loop and has such scenic variety. Great 3 mile distance.
Easy parking and multiple trail heads - near Kohl’s and the YMCA in Hermitage. A lot of shade and some incline variability.
Easy parking at wave country, follow left down the hill (opposite way extends further), beautiful bridge that leads you to a long path that connects to East Nashville park.
We are from Iowa and love to vacation in Nashville. We stay out by the Opryland Hotel and ride to the trail and connect at Two Rivers Park by the school. We can ride clear to downtown. So much fun and better than fighting the traffic, especially during CMA Fest! We have rode in the beautiful countryside on the backroads where there is little traffic. So beautiful and scenic!!
this trail is great. nice views, great canopy of shade, some hills... it had tons of people out on it today. the only thing i didn't love was there is signage on the trail for bikers to dismount before going down steep hills. they are quite steep with sharp turns, so i could see there being some close calls with pedestrians. the southern half of the trail had a lot fewer walkers, so it made for better biking. there are lots of dirt trails that shoot off into the woods that say not to ride a bike on them, but they look like they are open to hiking.
