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.

Clarksville Greenway

yikes

May, 2024 by hr8dq8ndkm

This travel is not for your young children riders and beginner bikers, there are way to many people, people and there dogs. Doesn’t seem to be enough room when passing on the some session where there are steep drop offs very unsafe. This was me and my family’s first time and probably our last time going there, we turned around and left. Maybe we would enjoy it more if we didn’t have young and unexperienced riders

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.

Brentwood Parks Trail System

bike

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.

Cumberland Riverwalk

Connects you to other unique trails!

August, 2023 by nadia9

We love to bike the Riverwalk. This trail is actually connected by Austin Peay Greenway on one end, and Upland trail on the other end. If you start at Austin Peay Greenway trailhead, you can walk/bike through the Riverwalk and connect to Upland trail. There are swings and picnic tables along the way, and even on a busy day you can find somewhere to stop have lunch. Last weekend we biked all three trails and I was amazed at how beautiful, accessible, and clean everything was.

Upland Trail

One of our favorites!

August, 2023 by nadia9

We love Upland trail for our family. It is a short, easy, and secluded trail. You will see parts of the city you don’t otherwise pay attention to. Eventually this trail will be continued, and will connect to Valleybrook park. I cannot wait for that final phase to be completed! Walking takes about 30-40 minutes, and biking takes about 15.

Murfreesboro's Stones River Greenway System

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!

Murfreesboro's Stones River Greenway System

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.

Mammoth Cave Railroad Bike & Hike Trail

Sloan Crossing pond to the park visitor center and back.

June, 2023 by fqthewench711

We only did the short section due to the heat, but it was actually really pleasant underneath the green shaded path! We did run into two downed trees that required going around as they were pretty big. (There was a big storm two nights ago and lots of cleanup going on in the area.). Took a few detours to the campground and the green river ferry crossing. We also ended up on a road that was closed off to cars but a national park bus came down and dropped off some serious cavers. We watch them gear up and go down into the bowels of the earth. Not for the faint of heart! I believe it was called the wild cave tour. Total of 9.6 miles over 2 1/2 hours for a wonderful morning ride! Loved it all.

Mammoth Cave Railroad Bike & Hike Trail

Fun trail!

June, 2023 by robertforeeowens

If you enjoy getting of the roads and paved trails, and ride trails through the woods, but don't like narrow, technical, dangerously unkempt trails, this is the trail for you! Nice wide, easy going in most sections, with a couple of steeper sections (which can be ridden easily on an e-bike...otherwise walked, as they recommend). Surface is hard-packed dirt, but with a layer of pretty course gravel (trap rock, etc.), so definitely best for fat tire bikes. As for the starting point, no need to start in town (not that interesting anyway, unless you need to go to a store, or something like that). As others have said, best option is to start on the southern end, if you can get one of those couple of gravel parking spaces on Zion Cemetery Road, right off of the Mammoth Cave Parkway...otherwise, you can go up the Parkway just a little ways to the paved lot near the big Mammoth Cave Park sign, where there are 4-5 spaces (but you'll miss a couple of cool sections of the trail that start on the cemetery road). Enjoy!
