Murfreesboro's Stones River Greenway System

lovely ride

April, 2024 by lb33558

Rode to the north trailhead and just south to i24 where the trail is now under construction. Nice amount of traffic and we even saw some wild turkeys. Would come again if ever I pass through Murfreesboro again.

South Chickamauga Creek Greenway

A nice ride that could be even better.

March, 2024 by prial

We began our ride from a parking lot off Camp Jordan Park Road. Riding through the part was lovely, but signage advising the South Chickamauga Creek Greenway was non-existant so we missed crossing the necessary bridge to the trail. Once corrected, we found that the entire trail was poorly signed, having to ask for directions along the way so we didn't get lost. The "paved" section on the levee was so badly paved, it is better described as gravel, and the cross winds along the levee were extreme. The second half of the ride offered a better paved and boardwalk surface and crosswinds were blocked a bit better by the landscape. At the northern trailhead we turned south on the Tennessee Riverwalk to extend our trip. This was the best part of our day! We enjoyed our adventure, but would recommend beginning at a trailhead after the 6 mile marker.

Johnson City to Elizabethton is 5 stars!

March, 2024 by dh676x6zw2

But going through Elizabethton is noisy next to the main thoroughfare. The trail is well maintained over the full 10 miles. If you go and the Johnson City Trailhead lot is full, there is a second parking lot a 1/4 mile away on the other side of Legion Street.

Kingsport Greenbelt

Wet trail made it treacherous

March, 2024 by dh676x6zw2

I went to the trail after having rain and before the trail was dry. Unfortunately, some sections had been flooded and, although there was no standing water, the mud on the trail was slick making it dangerous. This was around mile marker 3. Also, there is a section on the Cleek Road extension that looks like drainage is an ongoing problem. Some parts make me nervous in the downtown area. It looks like there is a homeless problem with deterrents on the park benches. The trail has the potential to be very nice, but not until some issues are dealt with.

South Carthage Rail Trail

Flat, easy, paved trail.

February, 2024 by dsmithmme

The trail is a super easy, enjoyable walk. Not a lot to see along the way, but plenty of fresh air.

South Chickamauga Creek Greenway

Fantastic

December, 2023 by 8gvrq4zymr

Best bike ride in Chattanooga for me. LOVE IT!

Tennessee Riverwalk

Riverpark trail is worth the ride

October, 2023 by jduffy3124

We started north and east of downtown at Tennessee Riverpark Curtain Pole Road. Free parking! There are several places along the trail like this, so look around. In downtown, you’ll have to pay for 2hr parking at Ross Landing. It was a really nice ride out to the end of the trail at the dam and back. Mostly park-like with some industrial sprinkled in as well. All of this area is well manicured. We saw areas where a nearby business had dedicated the improvement to their employees. We then made our way downtown. It’s beautiful, with a lot of pedestrians so take care. There are a couple of switchbacks on the trail there, but you can do it! Downtown you’ll need your gps maps to confirm the bike routes. The Walnut Street Bridge affords a great many views. As we made our way west and south, the trail went through some of the older industrial areas and ends near the Lookout Mountain Railway. A great fall ride for us.

Kingsport Greenbelt

Very pretty along creek & river

October, 2023 by wmtxby8b6h

Only got to do half the trail due to weather conditions, but what we saw was very scenic, wooded & well kept & clean.

Tweetsie Trail

Very pretty & gorgeous rock tunnel !!

October, 2023 by wmtxby8b6h

This trail was just gorgeous, well kept, & clean. The first half was very wooded and scenic. The second half was thru the town congested and had lots of streets and lights to go thru. We enjoyed it because we wanted to see what the town had business wise.

South Chickamauga Creek Greenway

Great Boardwalks

October, 2023 by barbscondo

We have done this trail twice from Camp Jordan. But if you want a shorter ride and experience all the amazing boardwalks start at Hawthorne Trailhead. Immediately you are on a short section of boardwalk and then continue on a lovely paved trail through the forests. You will soon hit two more amazing long boardwalk sections high in the trees. In a total of about 5 miles you will get the best of the trail.

Tennessee Riverwalk

Really wonderful trail

October, 2023 by barbscondo

We did this last year traveling across country again this year on our way to FL. I often wish TrailLink had some kind of mile markings on their map. But we started at the RiverPark and it is 6.5 miles down to the bridge to ride over the river. And right there at the bridge crossing. Is the best ice cream parlor ever!

Tennessee Riverwalk

Well done, Chattanooga!

October, 2023 by tagnrocky

We biked this lovely trail from the Springhill Suites, which is right on the trail, to the dam. The paved trail follows the Tennessee River and is pretty easy to navigate, with a few tricky areas around the Hunter Museum and Walnut Street bridge. I loved all the art displays including the mile markers which are metal silhouettes of various people. We felt safe the entire length and enjoyed it immensely.
