Cumberland River Greenway

Kbeegee

October, 2017 by britysdad

We are visiting the Nashville area from Iowa & I wanted to get in a short ride. Very nice trail. Well maintained. Good trail markers. Love the Cumberland river section. The sheep added to the experience. Nice to see barges navigating the river.

Maryville-Alcoa Greenway

Enjoyable ride!

October, 2017 by opstadp

Just ride this trail October 14th. Nicely paved trail all the way and pretty ride with a creek alongside at times and a few ponds and fountain. Some short hills in the Alcoa sections. Easy access from various places. We parked in the parking lot behind the Maryville courthouse and jumped right on the trail there and headed north towards Alcoa. When we came into town, we stopped first at the Maryville Visitor Center and they gave us a map and highlighted the trail and key points for us. This is a good idea because though the trail is great it is not marked in a number of places so easy to get puzzled as to which way to go. We did 18 miles total by going up and back and then a few miles south from the parking lot.

White House Greenway

Nice ups and downs

October, 2017 by markmoore006

Can I give it 10 Stars? My Wife and I were out visiting different Greenways and today was our first time riding this one. We Loved it! Nice creeks along the way and there is not much flat at all. Some really nice ups to get your lungs and legs feeling it and some fun downs so make sure your breaks are not too worn out. Nothing at all boring about this path. We will be back to this one for sure!

Brookmeade Greenway

Could be great...

September, 2017 by brian.kell

There are shopping carts everywhere and a homeless community in the back. You can not walk to the back without being bothered. I called Parks and recreation and they said "we know." Not that anything is being done about it. Someone please do something!

Cumberland River Bicentennial Trail

We will be back!

September, 2017 by markmoore006

According to Map My Ride the path is 7 miles from Mark's Creek TH to Lock A campground. 14 miles round trip. The path is blacktop all the way from Mark's Creek TH to Eagle Pass TH. After that, it's crushed rock. There is one dip on the rock portion that most will want to walk their bike through unless you are comfortable on a mountain bike and then it is pretty fun. 99% of the path is flat. My wife has a hybrid bike with street tires and it handled just fine on the gravel. The blacktop is pretty smooth except for a few places where tree roots have bucked up the pavement. The whole path is shaded with rock bluffs on one side and water to the other. The most scenic spot is a long bridge that crosses Sycamore Creek. I don't know what future plans are for this trail but we hope to see this trail continue to expand along the Cumberland River.

Stones River Greenway

Great place to get outdoors

September, 2017 by mattyo_82

Today I parked at the Stewart's Ferry Trailhead to take our dog out on a run. Plenty of parking, good facilities and a wonderful place to run or walk!

Clarksville Greenway

Red River Red River

August, 2017 by koldtoess

My wife & I rode this trail after riding the Cumberland River Bicentennial Trail on our way back home. We headed toward the “middle” TH. You may think you are on the wrong road but you will eventually arrive at the super nice TH with bathroom faculties, maps & a bike rental station. The trail is currently divided, with more planned, into (2) sections, Section B – South & Section C – West. We took Section B first, a nicely shaded trail but there are some +12% grades at old trestle locations (try to find the abutments). You will be ridding the bluff with the muddy Red River on your left until the trail abruptly ends at the treatment plant. Upon returning, we took Section C, this was more of a traditional RR trial. We crossed a beautiful, newly constructed bridge heading through residential areas toward the Greenway Pt. Track TH (you could park at Kenwood school on the weekends). Nice yet short trail but unexpectedly busy on a late Saturday afternoon.

Cumberland River Bicentennial Trail

Shhhh……don’t tell anyone, but

August, 2017 by koldtoess

what a great surprise & downhill both ways...shaded!! With a free Saturday, my wife & I headed in search of new biking adventures. We found a great one in Ashland City. Starting at the Marks Creek TH, you will ride on asphalt for approx. 4 miles and cross the Sycamore Creek bottoms via the original RR trestle. At the Eagle Pass TH, you will ride on gravel, good condition, for approx. 3 miles with the Cumberland River on your left & rocky outcroppings on your right until the trail ends at the Lock A Campground. We rode through the campground to just below the dam for a little over 12 miles. To our amazement, we have found a great new place to weekend car camp; clean & uncluttered campground (tent sites limited), sandy beaches for swimming & multiple fishing spots all along river. After the ride, we headed for a late lunch across the river at the Riverview restaurant (you have to try the Bobbers) and headed for the Clarksville Greenway.

Harpeth River Greenway

Nice place to ride

August, 2017 by markmoore006

My wife and I started at Woolwine Trailhead at Edwin Warner Park and cruised to the current end a little over 6 miles away and back, Very nice and scenic route. We are looking forward to seeing this path grow. There is only one part that is an old worn out stretch of blacktop near the beginning at Edwin Warner Park but other than that, it's a very smooth ride.

Wolf River Greenway

Over the River and Thru the Woods...

August, 2017 by peggjeff

https://youtu.be/auAbfBf2-9s

This is a very nice and well planned out bike or hike trail. Lots of scenic benches off the path to rest/relax and enjoy the view. A few short bridges, each unique, that cross back and forth over parts of the river. Has a very comforting and cozy feel. Nature and Modern Conservation at its best.

Big River Crossing

Crossing Big Mississippi River

August, 2017 by peggjeff

Wonderful scenic bridge crossing the Mississippi River from Memphis to Arkansas. Bike or walk. Lights up with color at night. Porta Potties and picnic table area at the Arkansas side. Very close to Memphis Beale Street and Hernando de Soto Bridge. An easy trip add to anybody visiting Memphis.

Stones River Greenway

The best Greenway trail in Nashville

August, 2017 by rosenquiste

Stones River Greenway is dare I say a magical place. It's a place where lives are changed and comradery is exercised. There are so many stunning nature scenes and views. The beautiful stones river by your side as you walk, jog, run or bike. Wooden Posts every .25 miles to show you your progress. You can start at a number of very cool Trailheads. Percy Priest Dam, YMCA, Kohls, McGavock Waterplant/Soccer Fields, Two Rivers Park, etc. This site says the trail is 9 miles one way - but I'd beg to differ on that. I'd say more like 11.5 miles from the Percy Priest Dam to Shelby Bottoms park. It's 8 miles just to the top lookout site after the bridge over the Cumberland. Then another 3.5 to Shelby Bottoms.
I'd like to personally thank all the people that planned and constructed the Stones River Greenway. It has literally changed my life as well as my family and friends. I've gained a lot of great acquaintances as well. I'm down 45 pounds too!
