Stones River Battlefield Loop Trail is a 2.3 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Murfreesboro, Tennessee that features a great forest setting and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, trail running, and road biking and is accessible year-round.
we completed approximately 2.5 miles of trails--started from the parking lot near the visitor center at the picnic tables-stayed to the left and made a loop-including part of the cotton field trail and perimeter trail--well maintained trails but horrible lack of signage (get a black and white map of trails from the visitor center for help)
The hiking trail is only about 1.2 miles. Their map shows a trail that would have completed the approx. 2.3+ mile hiking loop but it has not been maintained and is closed. Had to walk on asphalt back to the visitor center - very disappointing. The history of the land relative to the Civil War was very interesting and the interpretation signage, etc. is well done.
Nice trail. Interesting to learn about the battle that took place here. I've done this hike on 3 separate occasions and enjoyed each time.
Nice for a morning walk with the dogs.
A little confusing..
Nice walk and lots of wildlife
Well kept and easy trail for families with little children.
