Getting Outside in a Time of Social Distance


As the days of social distancing add up in the response to COVID-19, trails are increasingly being counted on as places where people can continue to be physically active and find respite while practicing social distancing. As you plan your trail outing, be prepared that some trails may have limited services, including closed facilities like bathrooms, depots and visitor centers as well as limited or no staff. We encourage you to check the latest public health guidance from the CDC and your local/state governments, as well as the status of your trail, before heading out!

Mountain Goat Trail

Great Trail!

March, 2020 by kira.d.burnett

My husband and I took the trail that started near Mountain Outfitters and ended nearby Sewanee. Beautiful, fun ride! After the first swervy bit, it was a straight shot with a good amount of slow uphill and downhill areas. I was worried about crossing roads, but it wasn’t bad and there was moderately low and friendly foot traffic. At the end if t trail, we biked around Sewanee and had a picnic before heading back. So glad this is near us while we’re all still social distancing. ¿¿¿¿

Stones River Greenway

My Favorite In The Area

February, 2020 by eaglesfanintn

This is a great trail. I usually park at the dam and then go as long and as far as I want. You can connect to Shelby Bottoms and make for a pretty long walk/run/bike. I've also continued out of Shelby Park and gone all the way down to Nissan stadium as the road has a bike/pedestrian lane.
There are some hills, a few that are particularly steep, which makes for some strenuous, but not too challenging parts.

Riverwalk Greenway (Pigeon Forge)

Beautiful trail

November, 2019 by wirenut7171

I really have to congratulate Pigeon Forge on this one. This trail along the river is very well done. If you park at Patriot Park you leave the park and cross the street then follow sidewalk past several houses before you get to where it looks like bike trail so it can be confusing if you don't know that. Also when you get to the Island you have to cross a couple of bridges and take a right where the trail goes behind a building back to the river so also confusing. My first time on this trail I had to ask an Island employee. Very worth it though! Trail goes under the bridges so you are not crossing the parkway.

Veterans Boulevard Greenway

Very hilly

November, 2019 by wirenut7171

This trail is alongside Veterans Parkway in Pigeon Forge. It's a good ride if you like a lot of hills because almost none of it is flat. You will either be riding uphill or coasting down pretty much the entire way. At the Sevierville end the trail goes back towards town, past an old church and to the community center, which is also a great place to park and use the bathroom.

Clarksville Greenway

Greenway paved walking/biking trail

November, 2019 by ronald.dayley

The Greenway is a nice walking and biking trail for kids and beginners. The North Ford Street Mountain Bike Trails come right up to the Greenway at one point. The North Ford Street Trails and Rotary Park are both good mountain bike trails in Clarksville TN. http://cambatn.org

Stones River Greenway

Nice trail, but somewhat hilly

October, 2019 by stvatandem

Started from the Two Rivers Parkway Trailhead (at the skatepark) and rode to the dam, about 8 miles away. There are a couple of steep hills for you to practice/hone your hill climbing technique. The various bridges that the trail crosses have fairly smooth transitions. Route signs are adequate, but a few more would be helpful.
Although paved, there are some areas where the asphalt has cracks/puckers from tree roots. Much of the trail is shaded by overhanging trees, which keep things cool during the day; but also a bit too cool as the sun goes down.
Overall, its a good trail.

Chattanooga Riverwalk (Tennessee Riverpark)

Trail closed 10/7/2019 for 3 weeks at Rowing Center

October, 2019 by cheryl77

We parked at Chickamauga Dam Riverpark and got on the trail heading towards downtown Chattanooga. The trail is well maintained and utilized by a variety of residents, all of whom were respectful and mannered. However, when we got to the Rowing Center we discovered the trail had closed two days ago for a three week period. Just FYI as we were not aware. There were other people surprised at the trail closing as well when we were there.

Chattanooga Riverwalk (Tennessee Riverpark)

Great Trail

September, 2019 by jasperpjm

We biked from the southern terminus to the boat launch, about 10 miles. Real nice, very scenic , lots of sculptures along the way. Trail along river north of there was closed. We probably could have and should have worked our way around the closed section but we did not.
Lots of variety. Some old abandoned buildings from a previous time and some new ones from today.
Markings were poor in some places.

Tennessee Central Heritage Rail Trail

questionable

September, 2019 by kwcopp

this trail starts downtown on a series of sidewalks...some OK & others ??? & also crosses numerous streets in busy traffic areas. Not an easy relaxing initial ride. Not sure how it is called a Rail-to-Trail since it needs a lot of work to qualify for 4-5 stars. Will not be back, too many great trails elsewhere.
