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.

Tennessee Central Heritage Rail Trail

Montery Tn rail trail

September, 2019 by riskwillard

The rail trail is in bad need of repair. the section that starts just behind the Monterey police department to Crossville Street. The wooden rail in different sections is falling apart, the fencing in the rail frame itself has either been pullled out or fell out in at least 4 sections of the rail. In dire need of weeding in 2 sections of the walk. Wm H Risk 202 D South Elm street Monterey Tn

Tennessee Central Heritage Rail Trail

Don’t Bother Riding this Trail

September, 2019 by pkrauss_tl

I attempted to describe our experience in this trail review; however, limited space prevented this. Poor markings, trail quality, tree roots attempting to break through the riding surface and a number of challenging intersections make this the worst trail we’ve ever ridden. (We’ve ridden in GA, FL, AR, AL, MS, NC, and SC). This trail is not for serious riders. I don’t have an axe to grind. Finally, if you like paved rail trails and greenways, skip this one!!!!

Rode from the trailhead near boathouse restaurant to the dam. Then back and beyond to downtown. Back to the Boathouse for lunch before hitting the road home.

Stones River Greenway

Really enjoyed the variety of scenery along this ride.

Great Ride Along River

September, 2019 by philipking

This is a great ride with much of it along the river. Can also connect to the ride through Stones River National Battlefield.

Stones River Greenway

Hills!

September, 2019 by markmoore006_tl

Awesome path especially if you love hills. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it could stand to have restrooms and water more often. There it one at the beginning, one at 3 miles if you want to count Kohl's, and a nasty port-o-potty at Two Rivers around mile 8(?). After that there is a restroom at Shelby Bottoms a few more miles away.
