Didn’t get to do the more trail-ish part because of flooding, but the 2 miles I did were nice!

It was a nice peaceful tail for running and biking not great views but a good hike!

We are fortunate to have such a terrific resource in our community. Excellent opportunities for walking, hiking, cycling, and kayaking access. Thanks to TSRA/TWRA, and US Army COE for their partnership with Metro Parks. Major additions coming soon within Lytle Park!

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

Nice views along river.

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

Such a great trail!

Great for scooters

Excellent place to ride a bicycle

It’s a legit place to get some exercise/workout done!!

Remarkable & magnificent. Thank You.

This was a nice, mostly shaded walk through the woods. It's pretty hilly, though it is paved and easily accessible. There's not a lot of parking, but not many people seem to use this trail so it's never a problem.

This is a little slice of heaven in the middle of the city. It runs along Stones River and is paved so anyone can walk it. Lots of beauty to see and very enjoyable walk. Loved it!!

Excellent trail , scenic views , enjoyable .

Great ride. For every down hill, there's an up hill! Perfect for cruising with a slight workout

Nice walking trail.

Beautiful Walking Path with easy access and great location. I stopped here on a Tuesday during my lunch and walked 2.48 miles in and out in roughly 45 minutes. Easy trail, wide paved pathway and wood walkways over water areas. Very clean and well kept.

The access to this was hidden, my GPS directed me into the Kohls Store parking lot and the trail entrance is at the end of the parking lot. Lots of parking and trash cans located at the trail head entrance. I entered the trail to the right. The trail goes next to the River and has mixed residential, commercial, school and wild lands on the right side of the trail. Very easy trail with mixed use of walkers, bicycles and runners. Very family friendly, on a Tuesday several families out walking and fishing with spots with easy river access from the trail.

Only thing that could make this better: There were three piles of dog poop on the path and several blue doggy bags left on the trail. It is great to have a spot that people can bring their pets but people need to pack out trash and not leave trash behind. If your dog poops on the path please be courteous enough to pick up and bag it then carry it out to the trash container.

Close by and well taken care of.

The perfect place for a run

Quiet time. Please remind dog walkers that dogs have to be leashed. As much as I'd love to take my shep off leash there are many people that do t like dogs that use those people as examples of removing dogs from parks. Just remind those that you see. If you don't like saying something, get used to going to parks without your dogs

Loved it!!!!

Good place to go for a walk or run

I'm not sure why this is rated as moderate. It's entirely paved and aside from a few hilly areas it's a rather easy stroll/ride/etc. I've biked it a couple of times and it's always a pleasant ride, although a little busy some days. This greenway is particularly nice because it goes all the way to Two Rivers Park a few more miles down then connects to the Shelby Bottoms greenway in East Nashville over a pedestrian bridge near Two Rivers Park (which also has disc golf and a skate park). The trail marking on the map on this page ends before Lebanon Road, but if you keep going you pass by a beautiful little section under trees by the river and then past a few cow pastures and you can see where the Stones River meets the Cumberland River.
