Two parking areas: (1) Eagles Pass parking area is between the paved section and the gravel sections of this R & T. The gravel part is around 2.5 miles to the west and ends in an RV park with a short ride that continues behind the basketball court as you enter the RV park on the first part of the gravel trail. About halfway there is a steep dip and incline, be careful. There are a lot of roots. It is not crushed rock, it is gravel. This kind of gravel is what is used on normal vehicle roads. A short section is controlled by the military and is fenced on both sides and not kept up. (2) The paved section is just at 4 miles long. It has a fair number of bulges in the pavement but not overbearing. The path is wide and scenic. We loved the paved section. There are around 7 bridges, all on the paved side, (two long ones), good place for pictures. We can't give it a 5 because of the gravel section and the roots. It is worth everyone's experience, but not one we will necessarily visit repeatedly.
It was a bit of a drive from Nashville but well worth it! The wife and I try to do a different Greenway every weekend and this one was well worth the drive. Tons of country views as well as bits of history along the way. To our surprise there was a farmers market going on half way back to our car. Great people and great “Love adventure” as we like to call them! 100% going back to this one!
Nice ride with scenic views. Plenty of space for bikes and pedestrians in most places on the trail.
This was a fun and challenging trail. If you want to begin with the more difficult ride, Park on Zion Cemetery Road and bike/hike north to the Mammoth Caves Visitor Center. This also gives you a great place to use the restroom and fill your water bottle. Get ready to walk your bike in 2-3 areas due to the steep incline. On the way there, we climbed just over 500’ total. The ride back was only 300’.
It was a great trail lots of good pictures taken
Here it is 2021, and the previous reviews could still stand true. This trial is taken over by homeless camps, and we didn't feel safe to walk more than twenty yards down the trial. The pictures on this site NEED to desperately be updated, or the trial cleaned up.
Great greenway with spots to park at various sections along the way. There’s a park across the street from the main entrance with lots to do. Some big hills that will get you breathing on each end if the trail. And if you start at one end and take it all the way, it’s an easy flat ride/walk with sidewalks the whole way back to where you started. You will have to cross the street a few times to go all the way around
Pretty ride on the river.
Wow, what a really nice trail. Nearly all the trail has canopy and we rode when the foliage was turning. Saw turkey and deer while riding. Great overlooks with swings to take a break and look at the scenery. Diffently a 5 star trail.
My wife & I rode this trail today. It was awesome. If you start at 2 Rivers Park, don’t miss the first couple miles of the trail with the pedestrian bridge over the Cumberland River.
Definitely a must, if you’ve never been here before.
