Shelby Bottoms Greenway

one of my favorites

October, 2020 by wpwilson34

Definitely a must, if you’ve never been here before.

Murfreesboro's Stones River Greenway System

favorite trail

October, 2020 by mitch.whitlock

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.

Cumberland River Bicentennial Trail


September, 2020 by michael.cassity

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.


Stones River Greenway


September, 2020 by michael.cassity

First time on this trail. I planned to ride from the Percey Preist Dam to Shelby Bottoms. Made a mistake by leaving Lebanon Rode and riding up to the golf course near Ravenswood Mansion. I should have continued west down Lebanon road to the YMCA trailhead. Spoke to several people on the ride who said the trail from the YMCA to Shelby Bottoms was closed due to the earlier spring tornado, does anyone know if this is correct? thx

Harpeth River Greenway

Beautiful Trail

September, 2020 by l.jiroch

Versatile landscapes, a level trail, along the Harpeth River and beyond into Edwin Warner Park. It won’t disappoint!

Shelby Bottoms Greenway

Fantastic ride in Nashville - great for all levels

September, 2020 by wduffee

This greenway is a lovely set of loops and straights, with the bonus of the Cornelia Fort Airpark!

Lots of access points so you can have your pick of riding distance and scenery.

As with many Greenways in the area, it can be very crowded so please be polite and give space to those on foot, calling out ahead of time when you are on your bike!

Stones River Greenway

Favorite ride in Nashville

September, 2020 by wduffee

Starting off from the dam and going to the Cumberland River Pedestrian Bridge is a very pleasant ride. Makes for a great out and back!

Mostly shaded with some beautiful bridges, fields and open spaces. The climb between the Waterworks and McGavock is challenging for new riders but rewarding. Lots of segments to split up the ride if you are limited on time.

Water and restrooms working and plentiful at the dam terminus.

Taking away one star because of the current outage near the Polo Park apartments requiring passing through the apartment complex and then riding surface roads to the trailhead by Kohl's.

It can be very crowded near the terminuses and trailheads so please use caution and call out if you are riding.

Murfreesboro's Stones River Greenway System

In-line skating the trails

September, 2020 by rmaron

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.

Mammoth Cave Railroad Bike & Hike Trail

Kind of rough

September, 2020 by strakusek01

This is a challenging 18 mile round trip ride. At the Park City end, trail maintenance is non-existent. Loose dangerous gravel, (where there is gravel), and narrow. This trail is not good for youngsters or very novice riders.

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!

440 Greenway

late summer walk

September, 2020 by carly.bhave

Very flat, all paved. One dangerous spot is crossing the 440 off-ramp because the cars are flying off that part of the ramp. Great walk leads eight up to the centennial dog park.

Shelby Bottoms Greenway

beautiful trail along the river

August, 2020 by rogscouse

The trail is a flat trail following the Cumberland river. Great little path up to the Bridge over the river leading to a more strenuous Stones river trail. Connected to this trail is a disused airport which allows you to get some speed training in.
