Upland Trail Description

Although short, the Upland Trail in downtown Clarksville features three interesting bridges. The first, at its northern end, connects it to the Cumberland Riverwalk, a beautiful and lively waterfront promenade.

Continuing south along Spring Street, the rail-trail features two former railroad trestles, one over Commerce Street and the other (formerly used by Tennessee Central), overlooking Valleybrook Park. Note that the trail does not provide access to the park, however.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available just north of the trail in McGregor Park (640 N. Riverside Drive).

Upland Trail Reviews

Print a map before trying to do this "trail". I could not find many if any signs marking this short trail. I started at McGregor Park and took the Riverwalk before crossing the highway. The trail goes up a hill then turns right and goes up another hill, fairly steep, to a parking lot of some bldg. From there the only indication I found of the trail was you could see a trestle in the distance. I rode across that short trestle. From here the trail is fairly easy to follow to another, longer trestle over an active railroad track. Be careful riding across this trestle since the end of it is fenced off and apparently is the end of the trail. (The trestle doesn't extend to the other side of the railroad embankment.

From the area around this trail, the only thing that indicates that this trail ever used to be a railroad is the trestles. While this trail is OK and has two interesting trestles, it is short, not very scenic and in desperate need of signage.
