Easy paved surface trail around lake and formal gardens. Construction currently underway so a slight detour.

Paved, tree-lined.

Nice trail but no dogs allowed. It’s clearly marked, but the privileged few will still ignore it.

Not a bad trail, well trafficked, good scenery.

Not all the way out of town and very easy. Did not enjoy

The trail was great! I started at the trail head at Kohl’s, went to the Dam and back. I was so glad to see restrooms at the dam. LOL there was a lot of traffic but not terrible. Lots of joggers, bikers and lots of dogs (all unleashes). I had tried this one earlier in the year but it was closed due to flooding. It was nice to be able to do the whole trek.

A great easy walk! Well kept trail, excellent lake views, secluded enough to feel like true nature! Highly recommend stopping to skip rocks on the lake.

Can’t get through the whole park because of construction but can get around via the roads. Paved easy walk.

Not “moderate” it’s “easy”. All paved. Some steep spots if using wheelchair or baby carriage.

We started at the end of the trail beside Kohl’s and walked approximately 1 mile out and back. Trail was easy walking for us and the 4 year old. Stroller was easy to push. Saw many turtles in the river, some squirrels, a large salamander and tons of birds and butterflies. Unfortunately, we also passed a few questionable people carrying open containers drinking and this made us ( two women walking with children) uncomfortable so we haven’t gone back.

I was skeptical of this trail at first because it's called a "Fitness Trail", so I was expecting an open city park atmosphere. But this was a nice paved trail in a woodsy setting with beautiful lake views. There are multiple spots to walk right up to the shore. My only complaint is that the last quarter mile of the trail is on the road. The red trail lines on the AllTrails map show it as alongside the road, but it's not.

Nice trail. Easy with a few small hills. There is some airplane noise but overall a very nice trail. We will definitely go back.

Easy urban trail.

Great trail. Definitely will add as a regular favorite.

This trail starts at the dam and runs along the stones river. It’s scenic for being in the city. I like the greenways for what they are-a tame bit of nature that inspires suburbia to get outside. There are bathrooms and a dog park at the dam end. I’m not a fan of paved trails, but I feel like it’s nice for bikers and joggers. There are usually a lot of people (another strike for me). But it’s close to where I live, so it’s a good place to get some exercise in when I’m short on time.

Completely paved trail... whoever reviewed this with the tag for mountain biking is mistaken.... yes you can ride your mountain bike here as I have just demonstrated - if you also want to be stopping for pedestrians every few minutes and getting strange looks from people who are wondering why you brought that strange bicycle with big tires out here

Go it the left at beginning for a longer, more gradual incline.

Super easy paved trail. Ran into about 20 people in an hour. Busy. Not always shaded. Has 2 benches along the way.

Very nice walk and great for bikes. Lots of bridges and the best tip was to look for trail head in Koles parking lot. It's in the North East Corner.

Great urban trail near Nashville.

This Greenway is an easy walk with a few moderate up/down hills. Paved throughout and well maintained. Trailheads have water access. Trail passes alongside the Stones River and along private property.

Definitely seems to cater to bicycles and runners simply by virtue of the trail construction being paved. Plenty of shade if you need it. Not overcrowded. You can hear air traffic sometimes which detracts from the serenity of the Stones river.

Great trail, but in early September the ticks were so bad. We were brushing off hundreds of tiny tiny ticks even when staying on the trail.

Great trail. Like others have said it is really noisy during the start and finish but once you go under the railroad tracks the car noise goes away. I went to the right at the fork in the trail. You then walk into a field and pass a small pond on your left. After the pond there is a steep climb. You then drop down and then go back up. Once on top of the ridge it is beautiful. I was there on a super hot day during the summer after work so my views were not great. There is a short spur trail on top of the ridge and I bet it has a great view in the fall or winter. Also like others have said there are no dogs allowed on the trail and no running. The parking lot is nice and there is a port a John available for use.
