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.

Betsy Ligon Park & Walking Trail

Very nice trail through quaint town

August, 2023 by trott1016

This is a nice walking trail and is paved. Safe area and right behind the downtown area of Erin. Sweet little town.

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.

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.

Clarksville Greenway

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

Stones River Greenway

great trail

February, 2023 by bigbarnbrewing

Wow! We were so happy to connect not only with this trail but also the Shelby Bottoms trail to make a 15 mile route from our East Nashville rental! Great scenery and super cool bridges .
