I walked the entire trail to New Englewood Road & back on a Monday afternoon. Did not encounter any other trail traffic, not even a stray dog. The trail surface was well maintained and easy to walk. It had been recently dragged with a box blade.
We drove up from Jacksonville, AL, where we ride the Chief Ladiga Bike Trail quite often. Riverwalk Trail was a wonderful surprise. The only negative was we felt that the trail could have been marked better, but, we will definitely be back. The views are amazing and the trail is VERY well maintained.
I have been riding this paved trail once or twice a year for the past 15 years. It is generally flat to gently rolling but has a couple of short but hard hills that you may opt to walk your bike up. The Stones River Greenway starts at Percy Priest Dam. This river has a rich history including an unsuccessful land grab plot by Aaron Burr and earlier an indian massacre. It is a beautiful ride along the river and a wonderful bike bridge across the Cumberland River. If you get to the bridge at the right time, stop, you will see the largest Riverboat in the country, the 300 ft General Jackson, glide beneath the bike bridge. On the days when it is running in November and December, the boat should be there around 12:20 p.m. and 1:40 p.m. The bridge takes you to a large marshy area called Metcalf Bottoms which is very flat but there are many paved trails and a bike path that can take you all the way to downtown Nashville and beyond for a few miles. My wife and I usually eat some crab at Joes Crab Shack in downtown Nashville. It isn't a fancy restaurant but the crab is very good and so is the service! the Crab Shack even let us bring a bike inside.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
