Cumberland River Bicentennial Trail
The Cumberland River Bicentennial Trail has 6.7 miles of bike trails and hiking trails along the scenic Cumberland River. Sections of the trail, from Marks Creek to Sycamore Creek are paved with public parking and handicap cap access which is convenient for street bikes, strollers and wheelchairs. Eagle Pass sections are compacted gravel which makes suitable hiking trails and mountain bike trails.
The first 3.7 miles of the Cumberland River Bicentennial Trail is paved starting at the Marks Creek Trailhead. This section of the trail has public parking and is wheelchair accessible from both Marks Creek and Sycamore Creek trail heads. Paving ends at the Sycamore Creek Trailhead. There is a comfort station at Turkey Junction, which is about 1.1 miles (1.77 km) from the Marks Creek Trailhead or 2.8 miles (4.50 km) from Sycamore Creek Trailhead.
The second part of the trail is called Eagle Pass. Eagle Pass is a 3 mile stretch through the Dyson Ditch Wildlife Refuge and ends near Cheatham Dam Right Bank. This greenway section of the trail is not paved but compacted gravel. This area is not suitable for road bikes or strollers, but is a excellent tour for birdwatchers and nature enthusiasts.
