One of the best Greenways I have ran on.

I ran 8.5 miles on the greenway on a Saturday afternoon. It is along the creek and most of it is secluded by trees on the side opposite of the creek. It was a warm day when I... read more

If you are the outdoor type, you will love this. I am not much for being outside walking among the trees and such. There have been a few times where someone was robbed or pushed around, but that is pretty much any where you go in any town. I would never walk the trail alone. I would take my husband... More

I ran 8.5 miles on the greenway on a Saturday afternoon. It is along the creek and most of it is secluded by trees on the side opposite of the creek. It was a warm day when I ran but I stopped at a couple of playgrounds for water. One was the OLD Fort Park. I also left the greenway... More

I am part of a running group and we run out here frequently. Day and night as it is lit at night. The outer loop is exactly one mile long. You can run it multiple times or go out to the Battlefield which connects somewhat to the Gateway. It is less than a half mile from it. The Gateway also... More

I am a frequent visitor of the greenway. I have run, biked, and walked here. It is well maintained and nicely shaded for much of the route. Also, it is beside the river and gives you places to enjoy wading in the water. We have taken our dog to the Bark Park along the greenway many times and walked over... More

This is my favorite trail to go on with my new bike. It runs along the river which is great and it's very clean. I always start at Cannonsburgh Village and head to Thompson Lane and then turn back which is about 6 miles total. Most of the people accumulate around the trail heads but become more sparse as you...

We were staying with one of my friend's family in Murfreesboro and wanted a quick hike/walk outside in the nice weather, and this was perfect. Really nice path and cool bridges with some spots to explore off the trail. Great if you have some people in a group that aren't huge fans of hiking because it is really just a... More

Great for walking or riding bikes. Plenty of shade. Plenty of convenient trail heads. The Greenway also provides access to some of the Civil War sites. Don't forget to keep your eye out for The Green Dragon.

The trail was level and had a great deal of room. The restroom was clean. The downside was the trash that could be seen in the river, and there was one property that had several old possibly abandoned vehicles that made the walk less scenic.

Awesome place to ride bikes, run or walk. Beautiful paved paths along the river. Very peaceful. There are areas of shade and sun so bring sunscreen in the Summer. There are benches along the way to sit and relax.
