Cumberland River Greenway - Metro Center Levee, page 2

Trail Notes:

There are no directional signs to the trailheads. If you are unfamiliar with the area, be sure to bring directions. Follow the directions on Page 1 of Metro Levee or Goggle it.

Titans training facilities

The older kiosks have not been updated to reflect additions to the trail (Winter 2010)

The trailheads and kiosks looked great.

The greenway has mileage posts and benches.

The mileage posts would allow you to travel an exact distance.

The Greenway is flat.

There is one section of the Levee that is gravel. I do not know why. It is along the Levee when the first side path goes down to the left - near mileage marker "4.25".

Walls along the path at Amulet Overlook

There are four rest areas, all river themed. The art makes the greenway more interesting.

We saw only one other person using the path. He was running on the Metro Center Levee. It was February.

The greenway continues from the Great Circle Trailhead to Downtown Nashville.

There are no restrooms or water along the path or at the trailheads.

Unless there is a breeze on the river, the path would be hot in the summer.

The Metro web site has not been updated lately. The map link on the left sidebar takes you to the map page. The Google Maps at the top of the page have the most current information.

A problem with Google Maps is that if you try to print the page, Google changes the Views from Satellite to Map and the path disappears.
