I ride this trail on a regular basis. It is quiet and mostly shaded. The asphalt paving can be rough in some areas due to tree roots growing under the paving but overall it is not a problem. Quite a bit of traffic at times, both walkers and cyclist. Lots of wildlife and some really nice views of the river.
I am an avid trail bicycle rider and this is my favorite for middle Tennessee. Not too long but very well laid out and maintained. This coupled with the really nice park that joins it makes a wonderful public space with something for everyone.
I went with my son and two grandchildren in the Fall. It was so beautiful and peaceful! The paved part was easy enough for almost anyone to walk. We did not go on the gravel portion. Several trees at the beginning were labeled with type if you look closely. The trail was clean. I hope to go again at different times of the year!
This trail can be use by most anyone. It provides a wide variety of scenery and activities including creek (no swimming), playground, corn (when in season), pond, ducks, and much more. The trail is wide allowing easy passage. It is kept clean. There are several stopping points to meet your needs and several different parking accesses as well as trash cans. There is also a dog park at the Garner Street Park access which allows your dog to run free in a large fenced area. Please always, in the dog park and on the trail, clean up after yourself and your dog. Thank you.
I rode the trail 12/06/18 and it’s a great ride even at 40 degree temperatures.
Beautiful scenery. Easy trail grade overall. Saw some very large sycamore trees. Saw soft shell turtles, frogs and box turtles on the trail and great blue herons at the waters edge. Only drawbacks: 5 of the six bridge approaches were hernia busters, some at least 3-4 inches high; no mileage signs at all, no maps at the TH, no maps on the kiosks either (like to take a photo of map to use as guide), no real TH at Lock A either. Still a good trail despite the roots and washouts and the frequent and large black walnut husks and osage oranges. Hitting those items at speed could cause a wreck. I think I knocked the box turtle with my bike. I hope the fella pulls through. Hard to see him with all the leaf litter, branches, dirt and rocks on the trail.
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.
My wife and I rode the trail up and back from Greenville to Central City on September 9, 2017. Trail head parking in both Greenville and Central City is paved, convenient, and safe. Trail is paved and about 8-10 feet wide. Most of the trail is flat or gradual slopes, except a short steep hill near Central City. Vegetation along the sides of the trail was mowed and well kept. Old bridges near the wetlands do not have guard rails but trail is wide across the bridges. Lots of benches along the way. There are a few road crossings near Greenville but not hazardous. The trail is off the interstate and parkway corridors. It is not long but is a hidden gem.
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.
My wife & I rode this trail after riding the Cumberland River Bicentennial Trail on our way back home. We headed toward the “middle” TH. You may think you are on the wrong road but you will eventually arrive at the super nice TH with bathroom faculties, maps & a bike rental station. The trail is currently divided, with more planned, into (2) sections, Section B – South & Section C – West. We took Section B first, a nicely shaded trail but there are some +12% grades at old trestle locations (try to find the abutments). You will be ridding the bluff with the muddy Red River on your left until the trail abruptly ends at the treatment plant. Upon returning, we took Section C, this was more of a traditional RR trial. We crossed a beautiful, newly constructed bridge heading through residential areas toward the Greenway Pt. Track TH (you could park at Kenwood school on the weekends). Nice yet short trail but unexpectedly busy on a late Saturday afternoon.
what a great surprise & downhill both ways...shaded!! With a free Saturday, my wife & I headed in search of new biking adventures. We found a great one in Ashland City. Starting at the Marks Creek TH, you will ride on asphalt for approx. 4 miles and cross the Sycamore Creek bottoms via the original RR trestle. At the Eagle Pass TH, you will ride on gravel, good condition, for approx. 3 miles with the Cumberland River on your left & rocky outcroppings on your right until the trail ends at the Lock A Campground. We rode through the campground to just below the dam for a little over 12 miles. To our amazement, we have found a great new place to weekend car camp; clean & uncluttered campground (tent sites limited), sandy beaches for swimming & multiple fishing spots all along river. After the ride, we headed for a late lunch across the river at the Riverview restaurant (you have to try the Bobbers) and headed for the Clarksville Greenway.
Drove from Huntsville AL to this trail. Very nice ride. I thought it was worth the ride up. Very shaded. Nice tree tunnels. Bridges along the way were beautiful. The main bridge is super neat and beautiful. We rode the full trail. All 13 miles. 3.7 paved and 3 unpaved one way.. Nice views of river. Only negative is lots of tree roots made for bumping ride even on paved area. Gravel area needs some up keep and attention. Nice trailhead with good parking.
