Mill Creek Greenway (TN)

great connector trail

May, 2017 by tenscsteve

I really enjoy the peacefulness of this Trail. What really makes it great though is that it allows you to connect to all the stores located in Lenox Village and others along the way on Nolensville Pike. You can also easily get to Kroger and Concord Road from there if you cross the street onto Bluff Road you can continue on that into some of the trails in Brentwood.

Eureka Trail

SURFACE

May, 2017 by rcheeze

I noticed that about 10 weeks ago (05-10-2017) some type of grader was run along the surface. It dislodged all of the larger rocks that had been tamped down into the bed of the track. It is now very rough and unpleasant to ride. Leave it alone!!!

Tweetsie Trail

Beatiful Trail

I love rails-to-trails and this one is a beauty. I run instead of bike so i did 7 miles that took you by creeks, mountains, and ponds. Awesome morning.

Cumberland River Bicentennial Trail

Best Trail By Far

May, 2017 by courtney990

There are not enough words to describe this trail! Saw few snakes, the rock formations and uniquely form trees were more than a sight to see! The trail seems longer than 6 miles but well worth every step. Mother nature at its finest.

Clarksville Greenway

Tranquil

May, 2017 by courtney990

One of the best walking paths in Clarksville! Very tranquil, lots of birds and deer to see. Part B of the greenway is more difficult due the hills and curves. The greenway combined is 10 miles. And will be extended in near future.

Springfield Greenway

Amazing!

May, 2017 by courtney990

Extremely unique and beautiful trail. Love visiting the ducks/geese. However few kids ruined the enjoyment by kicking one. But the trail loops around the town, and it is actually longer if you visit the soccer field and distillery. Kid and pet friendly ;)

Murfreesboro's Stones River Greenway System

Our family continues to use this trail on a weekly basis. Many trail heads to utilize. This provides a variety of experiences.

Big River Crossing

Great Views of the Big River

March, 2017 by rmheeth

The Big River Crossing is a unique trail. Relatively short (about a mile long), it is a walk/bike trail build on an old bridge over the Mississippi River. I started at the west end in Arkansas where there is a dirt parking lot at the end of the paved road (Dacus Lake Rd.). From the parking lot the trail loops around going up and under the railroad bridge before making a turn to go across the river. The western side is a moderate but steady climb to the top at the middle of the river where it levels out before becoming a very slight drop to the other side in Memphis. At the top, you are just beside the railroad bridge, although separated by a heavy steel grating. The trail surface is perforated steel plating which I would think might be slippery when wet. Also, being high up over the river, you are exposed to the wind.

The day I went, there were barges lined up going up the river as far as the eye could see.

The Big River Crossing is a unique trail with incredible views of Memphis, the river and the Arkansas countryside. I will definitely visit this trail again on my next trip to Memphis.

Mill Creek Greenway (TN)

Mill Creek Greenway - A better location for walking, running, bicycling

February, 2017 by vanheydenauthor

Didn't know that crayfish were indigenous to Mill Creek, spotted a 5 foot (plus) heron day before yesterday wading in the creek and then it took off majestically southward, (almost got it on camera-damn), and I find it comforting and very pleasant a walk/run along the stream most anytime. And don't let us forget the smaller birds that flourish there abundantly. Can meet individuals of like mind, have conversations, who would have thought?
Where's my mountain bike, Santa!?

V&E Greenline

Kick bikes or foot bikes

January, 2017 by old asa

Looking for trails to use my new Kickbike. It's as if the Kick bikes were designed for rails to trails exploring. http://www.bikemania.biz/catalogsearch/advanced/result/?manufacturer[]=1356

They are completely renovating the old Art Deco Sears into a vibrant business district. Seems a good destination for the Valentine/Greenlaw trail.

Murfreesboro's Stones River Greenway System

Scary & Unsafe

December, 2016 by cleonard_tl

Use to walk the Thompson Lane Trail Head often. Now the trail is so overgrown and out of control, that it is scary for women to walk alone in fear of predators hiding in weeds and bushes. Just is not a safe place anymore.
