Easy walk and pretty view.

Nice well kept trail. Great views along the way. I was attacked by Chinese Beatles but otherwise enjoyable hike!

I lost the trail about a mile from the campsite. What little trail there was had been covered by leaves and no markers in sight. I wound up turning back and doing the rest of the day loop to make up the distance. I am assuming that part of the trail does not get a lot of traffic .

Good for short hike. Would be good to clear a lookout point. Can’t see anything once you hit the top.

excellent trails

Nice views along river.

Any trail with this many lake views will be a favorite trail to me. I completed the Day Loop which is supposed to be 4 miles. My fitness tracker said it was 3.6 miles but that I had climbed the equivalent of 30 flights of stairs once I finished. The elevation changes are so gradual for the most part that it seems very easy. The wooded areas have several interestingly twisted and tall trees as well as beautiful rock formations. The lakeside portions rise slowly until you are rather high up on the bluffs over looking the lake and the surrounding areas for what seems like forever. It is easy to forget you aren't alone here as there were a few encounters with other hikers talk-shouting their way along the trail, oblivious to the others nearby. As my partner said, they would be the first to be taken out in a horror movie. Otherwise, I can see myself coming back here again and again.

We do this with day packs as training for long hiking trips. Not necessarily a pretty hike - just keep on slogging!

It's in my way to or from home. it's easy enough to stop by for some relaxation after a bad day. The Day Loop is my favorite. My goal is to backpack and stay over for an extended weekend. I was there earlier this week, lots of fungi also bullfrogs in "the pond". I have quirky ankles and find I can do this trail easily. Enough people around to feel safe, not so many people to feel crowded. Lots of places to swim as well.

If you can block out the heavy road noise from the nearby interstate toward the beginning of the trail, you will have a pleasant experience. About half a mile on the trail, the path goes under a bridge. On the day I went, this part was blocked off because there had been heavy rains the night before causing the creek to rise and muddy up the path. I simply went back up around to the road and crossed the street to continue the trail. The wide paved path afforded plenty of room for walkers like me, runners, and bikers to all use the greenway. There was a large fallen tree blocking the path very close to the end of the straight section of trail before you backtrack, but it was easy to bypass. Overall, it was an easy, pleasant walk near town.

Pack some snacks as this is a great ride with a LOT of hills. I started at Shelby Bottom Nature center and ended up on Two Rivers Greenway trail that takes you all the way to the Dam. Its about 15 miles one way. I ended up on 3 greenways that connect with each other. Shelby Bottom, Stones River from Greenland and Stones River of Nashville. If you start from Shelby Bottom you simple turn off at the bridge that takes you over Cumberland River to link up on Two Rivers before hitting Stones River.

Great trail..can be busy on the weekend. I like that you can cross over into 2 other greenways and end up at the Dam 14 miles away if you are up to it. This trail is scenic, well paved, several bridges and overall a nice ride.

A good, moderately challenging trail. The last 2 miles or so before you reach the campground do need some maintenance as some of the markers are tough to see, obscured by several fallen trees.
But, I will avoid this trail on warm, sunny days. The party boats in one of the coves were blaring country songs so loud I lost my concentration several times. :(
At the first split, I took the right side (the forest side) of the day loop, then ran to the camp ground, and on the way back when I connected to the day loop again, took the lake side of the loop to get back to the parking lot.
My Nike app marked that as 13.2 miles.

Beautiful trail. Definitely a favorite. We always do the Day loop option which clocks per my watch at 3.8 miles. It is super dog friendly. There are some rocky spots that give the trail so much beauty. Only down fall is during the summer it does trace a popular party cove so you are going to get some noise and nonsense from that. Other then that we love it.

Easy but lovely. Great way to spend an hour this morning.

More technical than most mid TN trails, lots of rocks. Love it though and have been riding this trail for a long time. This is the first local mountain bike trail that I remember.

Again Yekew is incorrect, hikers, runners, and dogs on a leash are allowed. No horses, no motorized vehicles.

Pedestrians have the right-of-way, cyclists do not.

I’ve been going here for years I’ve never had a problem here it’s nice and shady all the time and a great place to walk my dog. It’s not to long and not to short it’s just right.

NO HIKING , NO RUNNING
Mountain Biking only.
You will get hurt if you are hiking and running and will be responsible for accident and damages to bikers property.
Nice rock garden!

great trail. it has a 4 mile option and a 5 mile option. both are loops you can also combine them for about an 8 mile hike. BEAUTIFUL scenery well marked and good amount of traffic. I drive over an hr to get to this trail and it's worth every min.

Very nice paved trail. Nice scenery, and open for walking, running, biking, and for dogs too!

Short and intense. Basically all incline with 2 short level ground spots. Want cardio, don't have all day? This is your spot. Nice scenery all the way through, mostly tree canopy covered for sunburn prone folks. Ends in a beautiful hilltop clearing with covered benches on the perimeter.

Such a great trail!

Great trail for running if you're looking for something more mellow without steep gains. If you park at the Couchville Lake parking lot, you can make the run a good out-and-back for 15ish miles.

Absolutely beautiful! Shaded areas, paved road. Beautiful scenery, all green in the Summer. The smell of earth after the rain is simply wonderful!
Bring water as the heat of the day gets hot and steamy fast.
