Bring your pooch on a leash; remember to pickup after pup. It's HGHS property, but they are nice enough to keep it open to the community - people and pups.
Pretty ride on the river.
12 miles of trail from Thompson lane to Barfield park. Some areas are more congested than others, but overall not crowded. Add in the battlefield trails and Gateway Island loop for pretty scenery and a history lesson. There are multiple trailheads for access across the entire town. Several of the trailheads have public restrooms that are reasonably clean.
The current section is about five miles and goes through the woods. Very scenic.
These trails have a LOT going for them, but strictly for skating I give them only 3 stars.
The asphalt is in good shape in terms of not having very many root cracks, but roughly half of it was paved using course aggregate. There is a lot of vibration of the wheels going over it. Not smooth pavement that is a pleasure to skate on.
The trail is well shaded, and that keeps it cool. But it also delays evaporation of water off the pavement. The day I skated it (in late afternoon) there were many wet/damp spots. These were very slippery.
It’s asphalt now not crushed stone. Great for runs after school or walks.
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!
My husband and I took the trail that started near Mountain Outfitters and ended nearby Sewanee. Beautiful, fun ride! After the first swervy bit, it was a straight shot with a good amount of slow uphill and downhill areas. I was worried about crossing roads, but it wasn’t bad and there was moderately low and friendly foot traffic. At the end if t trail, we biked around Sewanee and had a picnic before heading back. So glad this is near us while we’re all still social distancing. ¿¿¿¿
This jewel of a trail is making me reconsider skipping all the small trails. At right at 2 miles round trip, the Bridgeport Walking Trail boasts outstanding scenery, a river crossing and parallels a working railroad. The trail begins near the old depot on Bonner Ave. A steep ascension is difficult to navigate in 90+ degree heat but soon transitions to a gravel railroad bed leading to the Tennessee River. If you wish to ride to the bridge, I’d advise taking the paved Bonner Ave. If you are traveling I24, take the South Pittsburgh Exit and and stretch a few minutes in Bridgeport.
Nice trail along Stone Creek. Historical Civil War Area. Great kiosk telling of history.
This is a great ride with much of it along the river. Can also connect to the ride through Stones River National Battlefield.
Nice shaded trail along Stone River with historical and environmental stops along the way. A number of restroom and drinking fountains at trail heads, which are usually in parks. A lot nicer trail than I was expecting in a small town.
I would suggest parking at Old Fort Park 1028 Golf Ln, Murfreesboro, and biking both ways. The signs are a little confusing, but one trail takes you downtown the other along the river.
