Trail Description
About this trail
Makes a full loop and comes back out near parking lot. The other easier trail...one may ride as long as one wishes...I have never riden the entire trail, as I have always turned around after approximately 3-5 miles. It is a ride through the woods near the water. It is not recommended that people ride these trails wet, or after a recent rain becuase some of the dips are very low and mud/ standing water in places is difficult to avoid. Usual Park Daytime hours----Closing time is 10pm. There are no fees. Happy Biking and hope to see you there!

Review: Was pretty neat to ride for my first time. Seems abandoned. There were a few pretty views of the river with some fishing trash left behind. There wasn't a soul in the park, which was nice. There were a lot of mud bogs that I had to walk around and the Rec area is now abandoned and chained off. It was pretty fun to explore all of that.

Review: The trail seems to be ridden more by horses than MTB's. The mud bogs are a huge problem and really ruined the ride. There are paths cut out around them but cannot be seen until you get in the thick of things. I would seriously advise going to Jones Mill if you are in the Smyrna/Murfreesboro area until further notice.

Review: This trail has not been ridden all summer from the looks of things. I rode the trail starting at the picnic area and as the trail got closer and closer to the water I had to stop every hundred feet or so and clear logs that were washed up during the flood. Other than that I think it was a decent trail to ride, a little overgrown in some places next to some soybean fields, a few downhills with loose rocks. I'll have to ride it again soon now that the trail is cleared.

Review: Trail is pretty much deserted, next best trail around is Jones Mill at Long Hunter. Another 1 mile stretch was just added so The loop is approximately 4.5 mile now. Very technical with loose flat rocks and a moderate climb to Bald Knob.... Well worth checking out and is an excellent place to learn control over your bike...

Similar Trail: I haven't found a trail that has the loose rock ALL the way through the trail like Jones Mill....

Review: This is NOT a trail. This is a mud bog. At one point I thought I might have to hike back to my truck to drive it down the trail in order to pull my bike out of the mud. Seriously, I wondered why this trail hadn't been reviewed in two years and I now know why. This was the first official trail I ever rode and it was pretty bad. Multiple times I had to stop and kick mud and debris out of my tires. The trail sits along the and the canopy keeps most of the trail covered. That plus people with horses have worn this sucker out. Almost the entire thing is mud, and it you sink up to your spokes through most of it. Unless TN goes through another ten month draught this is not a good place to ride. The short version is that if you like long walks in the woods, and you like mud this is the trail for you, because you'll be carrying or walking your bike through the mud for most of this trail. This really should be taken off the list.

Review: This trail is pretty fun if you live in the Murfreesboro area and you don't want to use too much gas to go biking. It's not difficult, but it's definitely worth checking out. I'm not sure what's wrong with the people who are implying that this trail is comparable to a 30-foot long sidewalk on Church Street. We went on the main trail (from the parking lot), then went about 30 minutes out on the trail from the picnic area before we turned around. As is mentioned elsewhere, once you hit the gravel road, follow the trail sign (go right then left). You can get a good day's ride in at this park, and the views are nice too. We went on a Saturday around noon, and we only saw two people riding horses on the trail while we were on it. Very peaceful and fun. Also, even when it hasn't rained, the dried mud should be avoided, too.

Review: This trail is not 6 miles long, not even on it's best day. But it is A LOT of fun. It's a quick as you want it to be. And as others have suggested, you may want to wait a few days after ANY rain fall. This place has some real mean swamp pits in it. Also the direction other have left are terrible. It's as simple as this. Get on Hwy 231, go 1.2 mile passed the VA hospital and turn left on Swamp Leanna Rd. (there is big sign there for Providence Church). Turn right on Central Valley Road go about 5 miles (you'll go over 840) the entrance is on the right. ENJOY...we did!
