The previous comment titled “Ugly” by Tweakhound back in Aug ‘08 is spot-on. My experience was exactly the same. Thoroughly unimpressed.
The trail is very nice, mostly flat with great scenery.
We started at the dam and rode until the “end” which was beyond what the trail map showed (about 11 miles). The various trail signs said the trail name was “music city trail” which was somewhat confusing. Anyway the trail was all asphalt and smooth…very few bumps along the way! Great ride!
this path is awesome- it curves around a golf course, there are creeks you can play in, there’s pretty bridges. Great for anyone- kids, dogs, walkers, runners, cyclists. Loved this greenway! Doesn’t feel like you’re in Nashville- so much lush nature.
We parked across the street from the driving range and took a left onto the trail. We found the far East side of the trail quite disappointing. You walk alongside a busy road most of the time and when you think you’re finally heading down towards the woods, the path dead ends. Next time, we plan to go West towards Percy Warner where I am sure there is better scenery. Of note, the asphalt was in good condition and it was an easy place to walk with a stroller.
I decided to drive the 50 miles from Columbia Tennessee down here to this trail after work as a last minute idea. Great little trail. I started at Veto, Al (mile 11) and rode it to the beginning (mile 0.0) and back. I thoroughly enjoyed the ride. The tree canopy kept the trail extremely cool even though the temp was in upper 80s. This trail doesn’t need to be paved
It was industrial but a nice ride with some good views and you can get lunch downtown if desired.
I was a bit concerned about some of the negative reviews but I found this route to be surprising interesting. Yes, it is industrial in parts but it is level, well-traveled and how can you not be surprised by the goats!!! It was fun and it is definitely a city vibe as opposed to rolling hills.
I do not understand why so many say this trail should be paved. It is great as is and paving it would ruin the rural nature of this hike. Flat and shaded, it is an idyllic walk.
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.
Nice ride with scenic views. Plenty of space for bikes and pedestrians in most places on the trail.
