Shelby Bottoms Greenway

beautiful trail along the river

August, 2020 by rogscouse

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.

Stones River Greenway

beautiful trail

August, 2020 by rogscouse

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

Barren River Lake State Resort Park

great trail, with a few concerns

July, 2020 by revchk

First off, this is an awesome trail. It is completely paved and is shaded for roughly about 2/3 of the whole 2.5 mile loop. Incredible scenery, loved the bridges over the creek, and it was full of spectacular nature, plus it was challenging from the rolling and steep inclines and descents within. It was also nice that there was a playground and restrooms with close parking to the trail head. Plus, one might think it’s not long enough, but trust me- it was a workout! However, there are a few concerns one needs to be mindful of. Much of the trail is cracked or buckled from tree roots growing under the pavement which made for a VERY rough ride on some parts. Also mud,debris, and other hazards like fallen tree limbs will likely be encountered, so pay attention. You will want to use a mountain bike or at least a bike with thicker wheels. On the day we were there, I was pulling a toddler trailer with my youngest son in the back. He giggled at first because of the “bumps” but started to not like them eventually. Make sure if you are pulling a trailer that you have descent ground clearance, and no other items except maybe a water bottle because your children will be “bounced” a lot. Plus, you will want hand breaks and the ability to shift gears...some of the hills are very steep and to maintain control you will likely have to “ride the brake” and shift gears frequently. My wife and oldest son ride bikes that are traditional pedal brake bikes which made the trail less fun for them on a few of the slopes and those occasional sharp turns. But they both enjoyed the trail, and just adapted. There was also a section of this trail that was “slanted” or leaning toward a cliff edge. This made me a little nervous as a parent with the trailer and also having my other young child riding his bike there as well because the trail is narrow. But we didn’t have any issues. Also, a significant portion of this trail runs through a golf course. There are “cart crossings”....and greens that are adjacent or connect to the trail....be mindful of this possible hazard if the golf course is busy. At one point a cart was parked next to the bike trial and they were searching for a ball. Minor thing, but with the turns and blind spots, had I been riding fast, there might have been an accident. And of course, having my family with me, made me perhaps a little anxious about the potential reality of someone getting hit by a golf ball. In short, it was a great trail, but it rode more like a mountain bike path than a paved trail. It is family friendly but not family “easy.” So use caution with the above mentioned concerns. Would I take my family there again, sure.....like I said....awesome trail...just be aware of the unique conditions so it is an enjoyable experience for all. FYI....we rode the whole trail twice that day....had a picnic between..... With an additional ride back down to the creek because my oldest son wanted to and my youngest fell asleep in the trailer and napped on the way....even with the bumps...so they can be navigated and not be too cumbersome. In short, pay attention and enjoy this little gem of bike trail at Barren River State park.

Stones River Greenway

headed back soon

July, 2020 by danielfarmer

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.

Richland Creek Greenway

Great varied trail

June, 2020 by janelleslawson

Love that it’s a loop and has such scenic variety. Great 3 mile distance.

Stones River Greenway

A favorite in Nashville!

June, 2020 by janelleslawson

Easy parking and multiple trail heads - near Kohl’s and the YMCA in Hermitage. A lot of shade and some incline variability.

Shelby Bottoms Greenway

Beautiful bridge connected to great flat path

June, 2020 by janelleslawson

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.

Love to bike Nashville!

May, 2020 by jjtilly3179

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!!

Barren River Lake State Resort Park

great shady ride

May, 2020 by danielfarmer

great views and seclusion. i saw a deer drinking water just off the trail. the only drawback on this trail is lots of buckling from roots in the asphalt. otherwise, this is a great ride through the woods.

Murfreesboro's Stones River Greenway System

Great Ride

April, 2020 by ashli_hall

This was a great trail in general. Perfect for walking or biking. Many of the entrance points have air stations for your bike tires if needed! The trail was beautiful! Scenes of waterfalls, streams and greenery! I will be back!
