Old Hickory Dam Greenway Description

Old Hickory Dam Greenway is one of many forming Nashville's system of greenways throughout the city. Nashville's greenways link neighborhoods, schools, shopping areas, the downtown area, offices, recreation areas, open spaces and other points of interest.

The Old Hickory Dam Greenway is a short, multi-use trail in the Tailwater Access Area, north of Nashville where the Cumberland River and Old Hickory Lake meet. The trail is mostly wooded, with access to the river from the northern-most parking area.

Parking and Trail Access

You can access the greenway at Tailwater Access Area on Cinder Road or from adjacent Old Hickory Lake Park, 898-800 Burnett Road. For more information, contact:

Old Hickory Dam Greenway Reviews

Gorgeous, well maintained trail over wetlands and surrounded by towering trees that keep it cool even in the heat. If you are lucky, you'll see the resident eagles whose nest is adjacent to the trail. I'd give it 5 stars, but there is a strip mine being built right next to it. Developers are being held up temporarily from further bulldozing by local, state and federal agencies who are investigating. Hopefully you will join the fight to help save the Old Hickory Dam Greenway. For more information see https://www.facebook.com/StopOldHickoryLakeQuarry

Thank you.
