Murfreesboro's Stones River Greenway System

Nice Ride

June, 2024 by gregorywallace62_tl

Construction still in progress so cannot ride complete from one trail head. Overall though was a beautiful, well maintained greenway.

Murfreesboro's Stones River Greenway System

lovely ride

April, 2024 by lb33558

Rode to the north trailhead and just south to i24 where the trail is now under construction. Nice amount of traffic and we even saw some wild turkeys. Would come again if ever I pass through Murfreesboro again.

South Carthage Rail Trail

Flat, easy, paved trail.

February, 2024 by dsmithmme

The trail is a super easy, enjoyable walk. Not a lot to see along the way, but plenty of fresh air.

October, 2023 by anne.snearly

Markings for trail not there. We just looped the park. More signs are needed.

Richland Creek Greenway

Bad for inline skating / rollerblading

September, 2023 by vanantwj

This trail is listed as good for in-line skating, but a large section of the trail is very rough / old pavement, and much of the rest of it has long hills and sharp turns.

Historical ride along the river

July, 2023 by eric420

Fun paved pave along the Stones River thru Civil war battle sites. Ride thru shaded canopies, under bridges over bridges, winding thru field. Deer jumping across the trails. Bunny rabbits hopping around in the fields. Great ride at sunset to dark. Enjoy!

Great Trail

June, 2023 by caldwellws

Took the opportunity to ride this trail and glad I did. This greenway is wide, shady with lots of nice scenery. I looped it end to end with the connecting trail for a 25 mile ride. It is now on my list of favorites in the Middle Tennessee area.

White House Greenway

Drove from BG, Ky., and it's better bike ride than anything here. Wish it was longer. Gas was at least 20 cents cheaper, so the drive was worthwhile.

Cumberland River Greenway

Trail Needs Some Maintenance

May, 2023 by bcrinehart735

We rode this trail in May 2023. We accessed the northwest end of the trail via Freeland Station Road. It appears that the trail continues past this point but it is not shown on the map. We followed the trail northeast, east and southeast towards downtown Nashville. After a few miles we passed several homeless encampments in the wooded areas. When we reached the downtown area near 2nd St and Cement Plant Road we were met with construction debris. We found no clear description of where we were, where we might go and what we might see. We returned to the trailhead.

Prior to reaching the homeless encampment, the paved trail follows the curve of the river. Wildlife is visible on and along the river.

It would have been great if the trail were marked and we would have been able to ride the trail into the Broadway downtown area, Ryman Auditorium, etc.

Brentwood Parks Trail System

one of my favorite trails

May, 2023 by hollygoines

This trail is paved and easy to ride. Beautiful trail. I loved every part of it. It connects several parks together. Lots of shady areas and resting places.

Shelby Bottoms Greenway

Runway

April, 2023 by skvidera_tl

We loved this ride and found it extra fun to bike down an old airplane runway!

Shelby Bottoms Greenway

Great trail

February, 2023 by k.bridges

Great short trail for cycling and walking. Lots of bikes but rules are clearly posted/stated and most everyone is courteous except for a few cyclist who like to “flex” their riding & speed skills for everyone to see! More crowded on weekends but great for morning rides before the walking crowd arrives. The nature center is worth a visit too! Good parking areas
