Paved parking lots are available at each trail endpoint. Take Exit 258 from I-40; travel north on TN Hwy 53 for approximately 3 miles. The trailhead will be on the left.
Carthage is one of the most charming towns in Middle Tennessee, but this trail--lacking views of the river--wasn't much to talk about it.
The trail is paved with no steep grades, and I think it would be a great place to roller blade or for kids to bike. We walked it in May, and the honey suckle and other flowers made it a delight to our senses.
We began at the Save-Way and walked south. There is a street to the west side of the trail, but the left is meadows and woodland. I spotted a bluebird, but not many other signs of fauna.
I can't wait to get back to Carthage again, but I hope to hike along the river--or kayak it. I can't think of a reason why I would take this trail again.
Rode our bike there today. very short and easy . Good smooth trail bit boring, hopeful it is the beginning of something larger and nicer down the road.
