Lake Barkley Bridge Multiuse Path

Land between the Lakes

July, 2021 by dmsgls101020

On the Fenton side of the Island, the west side, the paved part of the trail extends west from the Fenton TH over the bridge and ends at approximately 1.3 miles. From the Fenton Trail Head to the Sunset Trail Head is not paved. From Fenton to Sunset is not paved, 8.2 miles. From Sunset Trail Head headed east over the east bridge is approximately 3.3 miles. From that point, east is approximately 6 paved miles.

We hiked from the Fenton side to the Golden Pond Visitors Center, which is 4.2 miles, round trip 8.4 miles. We rode our bikes on the east and west paved sides but did not ride on the paved area on the east side of the east bridge that is on the north side of the highway.

We loved the hiking and biking on this trail. You can bike the unpaved trail, but you need to be skilled enough to do that. We are in our 70s and tried to bike the first mile on the west side headed east but turned back. We give this trail both paved and gravel a 5. It is a very good trail to hike. We cannot comment on the North-South Trail.

We estimate the total length of this trail with the approximate 6 miles on the east side to of the east bridge ar around 16 miles plus.

Cumberland River Bicentennial Trail

Cumberland River Bicentennial Trail

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.

Springfield Greenway

Awesome surprise!

May, 2021 by west.shannon2289

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!

Wow, what a really nice trail. Nearly all the trail has canopy and we rode when the foliage was turning. Saw turkey and deer while riding. Great overlooks with swings to take a break and look at the scenery. Diffently a 5 star trail.

Lake Barkley Bridge Multiuse Path

a real jewel

November, 2020 by davemarshall54

After a barge knocked this bridge down at Lake Barkley and Land Between the Lakes in Kentucky they rebuilt it with a gorgeous new bridge with a dedicated bike path. The scenery is gorgeous, as is the lake. There is currently construction underway to expand it quite a bit. Worth the trip

Cumberland River Bicentennial Trail

I have ridden this trail numerous times from Ashland City and found the best time to ride is in the Spring or Fall when the leaves have fallen. This give you a much better view of the beautiful Cumberland River. The course is relatively easy.

Cumberland River Bicentennial Trail

Beautiful Trail!

September, 2020 by lisa.jarnigan

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!

Lake Barkley Bridge Multiuse Path

i'm going back

May, 2020 by danielfarmer

this trail is one of my new favorites. i started on the east end and traveled west. the off-road trail signage is a little lacking, but you never really get too far going the wrong way before you figure out you've turned wrong. the off-road part between the bridges is very fun. lots of gravel and dirt trail. i saw no washed out parts. they have grating installed to prevent washout in at least one spot. i didn't look at the map closely enough before going. the majority of this trail is off road trail! and it is very fun! nothing too steep or sharp on the hills or curves. just fun riding.

Clarksville Greenway

very nice trail

May, 2020 by danielfarmer

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.

Muhlenberg County Rail-Trail

fun ride

May, 2020 by danielfarmer

saw some wild turkeys, beavers, an oriole, and other wildlife. pavement in great shape. nice and wide to accommodate walkers/joggers/cyclists. the maintenance crew was out cutting the grass today too, keeping it well kept up. nice little trail. wish we had more like it around south central KY.

Lake Barkley Bridge Multiuse Path

Bridge to bridge

April, 2020 by marjoriewillems

This trail starts west of the Kentucky làke bridge and ends east of the lake Barkley bridge. The middle is crushed lime stone. 3.5 Miles on the east end are paved as are about 2 miles on the west end. The route follows the Fenton area roads from the bridge pathway to the trail head. The paved section is open and stone section is shaded. It goes by the golden pond visitor center which has water and rest rooms.
