We were in Nashville for 5 days, staying downtown. I was looking for a place to run (did not want to run in the heart of the city) and Shelby was recommended to me by someone who lives in the area. The park and trail...More

We took our road bikes on this trail, and were SO pleasantly surprised at how awesome it was! It was extremely clean, with zero garabage, not too busy, and quiet. We were able to ride at an acceptable speed which was nice in the city....More

Navel Hill Disc Golf Course. Nicely marked, concrete tee pads, disc cart friendly, more open than wooded, clean and fun to play this course!

this is a gorgeous place part of the Shelby bottoms nature area. the view is great and the pathways are all paved. I will say however the porta potties at the trailhead were unusable because of filth in them.

So close to downtown, east Nashville, and the hubub of city living, here's another oasis of cool, leafy paths you can bike or walk among. Plus, it's free. It tends to be fairly underpopulated, even on nice days, so this is a gem of an...More
