We have ridden this trail 4 or 5 times in the past and we have really enjoyed it, but not this time. We started at the caboose in town and headed north on the trail. It was very rough. Lots of tree limbs and debris. There were large rocks that made the going very tough. Looks like someone has stopped maintaining the trail. We made it to the northern end after a very rough ride. We decided that we just couldn't head back on the trail so we rode the road back into Elkmont.
We were so disappointed in the trail that we did not try the southern part. We just drove the 2 hours back home.
It is a shame because we have enjoyed the trail in the past. We won't come back unless something is done for the trail.
I don't get the 5 star reviews or the trail description. Rode from behind Titans stadium to trail end. It is 14.26 miles round trip. After you clear the Riverfront area full of trash and homeless, the first half of the trail is past warehouses, and cement factories. You can't see the river at all. When you clear that you still have warehouses on the land side and the view in this section of the river ain't much. No water and one porta-potie that I assume is associated with the golf course.
Nice ride along the Cumberland River, but you’d never know it. While grass around the trail was well maintained, undergrowth from trail to river blocks over 90% of water view. Otherwise, loved the experience.
To say Huntsville Greenways are cookie cutter is not a diss. One can expect concrete and asphalt trails, wide grassy borders and usually a creek. Almost all are well maintained. The best are mowed all the way to the water, have interesting structure and avoid road crossings. Indian Creek is one of the better ones. Just wish it was longer.
Swan Creek Trail is a well maintained bike/walk/run trail in Athens, AL. Nice natural features like the creek with small noisy rapids and interesting man made ramps and bridges. Trail travels under all major roads for maximum safety. Good mix of sun and shade connecting Athens shopping to tennis, ball and soccer facilities. Enjoy this quick pit stop with even your smallest or oldest family members and pets.
To take my mind of the chaos of the world we live in, I walk the Richland Creek Greenway each and every afternoon. The scenic creek crossings and the meandering trails can put even the most-troubled minds at ease. The wide paths allow bikers, runners, walkers, dogs, children, and strollers to easily maneuver.
I'm late with this review, but the previous two reviews prompted me to add mine now. I went for my third on this trail in late 2017. As my earlier reviews stated, I had really nice rides. But not this one. I started at the northern trailhead and only went maybe a couple of miles before turning back because the trail was in such horrible shape. As stated in the two previous reviews by markmoore and Old Terry, there were lots of very large rocks to contend with which made the ride very unpleasant. I kept waiting for signs that things were going to get better, but that didn't happen and finally I just gave it up and turned back and got on the road alongside the trail as soon as possible. I had driven over an hour to get there, so I was quite disappointed. The short stretch of trail on the north end between the trailhead and the woods has always been the roughest section, but it was tolerable. But this time it was really bad even far into the woods. Apparently no trail maintenance at all had been done for quite some time. As the Mad Tweeter might say - Sad!
I would like to try the trail again sometime this year, but will not unless I know it will be in better shape for biking. Hopefully someone can give an update here on the condition of the trail at the north end.
Oh, and there are indeed dogs again at the house by the trailhead. They were in a fenced-in yard and I don't recall having any problems with them - not even being barked at - but they are there again.
Came from Michigan, and rode this trail on a BEAUTIFUL Saturday before Easter. BEAUTIFUL ride. lot's of walkers and bike riders. Thoroughly enjoyed the trail..
Very clean. Paved with ' wilderness' off shoots out you want more secluded trails with lots of shade. Good for hit summer as there are several water station at end of trail and a couple off creeks where dogs can take a dip to cool off.
Just wish more people would clean up after their pets. Probably better clean up effort of they put a couple more trash cans.
I have been riding this paved trail once or twice a year for the past 15 years. It is generally flat to gently rolling but has a couple of short but hard hills that you may opt to walk your bike up. The Stones River Greenway starts at Percy Priest Dam. This river has a rich history including an unsuccessful land grab plot by Aaron Burr and earlier an indian massacre. It is a beautiful ride along the river and a wonderful bike bridge across the Cumberland River. If you get to the bridge at the right time, stop, you will see the largest Riverboat in the country, the 300 ft General Jackson, glide beneath the bike bridge. On the days when it is running in November and December, the boat should be there around 12:20 p.m. and 1:40 p.m. The bridge takes you to a large marshy area called Metcalf Bottoms which is very flat but there are many paved trails and a bike path that can take you all the way to downtown Nashville and beyond for a few miles. My wife and I usually eat some crab at Joes Crab Shack in downtown Nashville. It isn't a fancy restaurant but the crab is very good and so is the service! the Crab Shack even let us bring a bike inside.
We are visiting the Nashville area from Iowa & I wanted to get in a short ride. Very nice trail. Well maintained. Good trail markers. Love the Cumberland river section. The sheep added to the experience. Nice to see barges navigating the river.
There are shopping carts everywhere and a homeless community in the back. You can not walk to the back without being bothered. I called Parks and recreation and they said "we know." Not that anything is being done about it. Someone please do something!
