Ashland City Bicentennial Greenway

sumner-trails

February 23, 2021 @ 9:00 am

Ashland City Bicentennial Greenway. 4 miles. Easy. Back in the early 1900`s the Tennessee Central Railroad chugged along this route going from Nashville to Clarksville where it connected with the giant Illinois Central Railroad. The old TC ceased operating in 1968 but you can still see evidence of the railway which eventually became the Greenway. This hike is a classic Rails-To-Trails and follows the old railway grade on a paved surface which makes for a nice winter hike. For the first portion of the trail there is swamp on the left and a steep bluff on the right, but then enters a more open landscape for the last portion, crossing several bridges over creeks and over lake water from the Sycamore Creek embayment. The highlight of this hike is the iconic large iron trestle over Sycamore Creek. You won’t need your boots or poles for this one. Meet for caravanning at Hendersonville First Presbyterian Church, 172 W. Main parking lot at 9 am CT. For further info contact Owl at ballallenger@aol.com or call/text 615-454-7673.
