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!?

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.

Murfreesboro's Stones River Greenway System

overgrown

November, 2016 by flippy040362

Years ago I use to walk my dog on this trail every day and admire the beauty of the river, What happened? I visited the trail after leaving the area for a few years and I cant even see the river now it is so over grown! I would love to put together a clean up crew/group to revive the view of the river!

Tennessee Central Heritage Rail Trail

A Great resource for area residents.

November, 2016 by david.laferney

This review pertains to the 4.5 mile Cookeville to Algood section of the trail.

My wife and I have biked this trail several times since before it even opened, and I love that we now have this local option - and in many ways, this is really a pretty good trail. But, there are real usability issues with it - thus only 3 stars.

First the good...

Quite gentle grades make this trail accessible to riders of all levels.

The newly paved surfaces and upgraded wide sidewalks are a joy to ride on.

Access is great - ample, safe parking at the depot, cinderella park, and Algood community center plus several minor access points mean that many area residents can get on the trail with little or no driving or parking issues.

REAL bathrooms and water are available at the Depot and at Cinderella park. Some great trails are somewhat lacking in this department - Shelby park greenway in Nashville for example.

The Cookeville end of the trail passes through some of the more interesting parts of town and is my favorite section.

Cinderella Park is just about halfway between the two ends of the trail - so parking there gives you the option of doing one half at a time - a good option if you are not in great shape, or if the temps are not ideal.

The Cinderalla park trail head is a good place for a group picnic - with a nice basketball court, playground, grills, and a covered picnic shelter - to start or end a ride.

However - the not so good...

First and foremost the street crossing at North Washington is not at all kid-friendly. Not very adult-friendly either. If there is a lot of traffic it can be pretty intimidating for many riders. Something else really needs to be worked out.

There are several other street crossings - most of which - other than Fisk rd - are very low traffic side streets and really not a problem. But again kids need to be well supervised. None of the other crossings are nearly as troubling as N. Washington.

I really enjoy this trail and its convenient location - but the truth is, that much of the scenery isn't very scenic. The old downtown district with the depot, historical buildings, and farmer's market and the cruise along the edge of the TTU campus is very nice, but other parts of the trail are pretty much the back end of steel commercial buildings. It's not a great negative, not trashy or unsafe - just not attractive scenery.

Three out of five stars sounds worse than I want it to - I really like this trail being very close to my home. But if you have ever ridden on the Chattanooga river park trail or the Nashville Shelby park trail, or the Virginia Creeper trail you will understand why this isn't really a 4-5 star experience. Maybe someday it will be. Fingers crossed.

Shelby Bottoms Greenway

Gem of a trail

November, 2016 by david.laferney

It's a great park-trail experience with no substantial hills except (optionally) if you cross the pedestrian bridge over the Cumberland river. The trails and the parking area have a very safe feel to them. Bring your own water!

My Wife, 11-year-old Grandaughter, and I started from the parking lot under the railroad trestle in Shelby park. We rode North on the main trail - crossed the pedestrian bridge to wave country - then continued to the north end of the park, around the north loop, then returned to Shelby park. Just under 10 miles including a bit of messing around in the parking lots to check out our gear. There are other paved connectors and side trails that you could explore if you have the time and inclination.

The trail going up to the pedestrian bridge, and on - through a tunnel under the interstate -to the trailhead at wave country are pretty steep - but very much worth the effort. As we were crossing the bridge, the General Jackson river boat passed under it for a great photo op - and the return ride down the long hill is great fun. Just make sure your brakes are in working order first!

As others have mentioned - use the bathroom before you start and bring enough water.

The reason I give this trail less than 5 stars is that even though it's a great trail, and well worth the (2hr) drive to get to it - it just doesn't have the level of spectacular scenery or interesting landscapes - like the Virginia Creeper, or Chattanooga river park trail. Still - a great resource for mid-TN recreational bikers.

Eureka Trail

Loose unaccompanied Dogs are a nuisance and danger to people and pets

October, 2016 by whbump

During frequent trail walks I've encountered agressive Dogs on this trail around the intersection of the Route 439 (Fairview Rd) intersection with the trail. Dogs chase bicycles and other "leashed" animals. The dogs always appear to be in the same location so I suspect they belong to residents who live nearby. If this situation continues to go unchecked I suspect trail users will begin to avoid the trail or begin protect themselves and their pets.

Trail Managers need to resolve this problem as quickly as possible to avoid a potential incident that is just waiting to happen.

Shelby Farms Greenline

Nice asset of Memphis

October, 2016 by tbaileyva

We ride this trail every time we visit our daughter at college. One can make this trail as long or short as one likes since it borders Shelby Farm Park which has other trails. We've found nice places to eat toward mid-town (favorite Cheffie's Cafe) and there's some places along North Germantown Pkwy on the other end. The new section is nice. Looking forward to riding The Big River Crossing over the Mississippi. It was opening the weekend after our last trip.

Tweetsie Trail

Nice Trail

October, 2016 by tbaileyva

My wife and I (in our 60s) rode the trail this summer. The reviews were spot on. We started in Johnson City since we were heading north on I-81. The end of the dedicated trail goes along a fairly busy highway and one does need to watch for vehicles pulling in and out. The part from JC to Elizabethton is mostly down-hill (but not so much we had to get off our bikes), in the woods, and has some stops/interpretive sites. Trail surface is fine packed gravel/dirt, no worries for hybrids. 4 stars for the busy part in Elizabethton.
