The previous comment titled “Ugly” by Tweakhound back in Aug ‘08 is spot-on. My experience was exactly the same. Thoroughly unimpressed.
My husband and I chose this greenway ( Springfield) to try yesterday in celebration of our wedding anniversary ¿¿¿¿. We are new to Trail Link and this is our second trail. It was perfect ! Weather gorgeous doesn’t hurt .¿Some adorable dogs with their people walking and a couple of other cyclists but not crowded at all. Will go back!
Could be a great trail, they need to re-pave about 2/3rds of the trail. Really bumpy with some of the ruts 2 to 3 + inches high. It has good shade and good uphill.
The first 2/3 are down hill which is nice but as the previous person stated the trails are littered with tree ruts that have raised the pavement 2 to 3+ inches in some spots the rest of the trail is a nice little workout
The trail is very nice, mostly flat with great scenery.
We started at the dam and rode until the “end” which was beyond what the trail map showed (about 11 miles). The various trail signs said the trail name was “music city trail” which was somewhat confusing. Anyway the trail was all asphalt and smooth…very few bumps along the way! Great ride!
this path is awesome- it curves around a golf course, there are creeks you can play in, there’s pretty bridges. Great for anyone- kids, dogs, walkers, runners, cyclists. Loved this greenway! Doesn’t feel like you’re in Nashville- so much lush nature.
We parked across the street from the driving range and took a left onto the trail. We found the far East side of the trail quite disappointing. You walk alongside a busy road most of the time and when you think you’re finally heading down towards the woods, the path dead ends. Next time, we plan to go West towards Percy Warner where I am sure there is better scenery. Of note, the asphalt was in good condition and it was an easy place to walk with a stroller.
It was industrial but a nice ride with some good views and you can get lunch downtown if desired.
I was a bit concerned about some of the negative reviews but I found this route to be surprising interesting. Yes, it is industrial in parts but it is level, well-traveled and how can you not be surprised by the goats!!! It was fun and it is definitely a city vibe as opposed to rolling hills.
Two parking areas: (1) Eagles Pass parking area is between the paved section and the gravel sections of this R & T. The gravel part is around 2.5 miles to the west and ends in an RV park with a short ride that continues behind the basketball court as you enter the RV park on the first part of the gravel trail. About halfway there is a steep dip and incline, be careful. There are a lot of roots. It is not crushed rock, it is gravel. This kind of gravel is what is used on normal vehicle roads. A short section is controlled by the military and is fenced on both sides and not kept up. (2) The paved section is just at 4 miles long. It has a fair number of bulges in the pavement but not overbearing. The path is wide and scenic. We loved the paved section. There are around 7 bridges, all on the paved side, (two long ones), good place for pictures. We can't give it a 5 because of the gravel section and the roots. It is worth everyone's experience, but not one we will necessarily visit repeatedly.
It was a bit of a drive from Nashville but well worth it! The wife and I try to do a different Greenway every weekend and this one was well worth the drive. Tons of country views as well as bits of history along the way. To our surprise there was a farmers market going on half way back to our car. Great people and great “Love adventure” as we like to call them! 100% going back to this one!
