Greenways & Wetlands
GreenwayThe Murfreesboro Greenway System consists of the Stones River and Lytle Creek trails. The Stones River and Lytle Creek Greenways are available for you to enjoy nature hikes, walking, running, bicycling, or in-line skating along the five miles of riverside trails. Small watercraft access points are also available for paddlers to enjoy the Stones River. The Murfreesboro Greenway System connects historical sites, parks, neighborhoods, and businesses; it also serves as a conservation corridor to preserve precious natural and cultural resources.

There are 11 trailheads to provide access to the Murfreesboro Greenway System, and a printable map is available to download. Read the rules for greenway usage to stay informed.

The Greenway trailheads open at daylight and close 1/2 hour before sunset.
The Gateway Island and trail are open 6:00 a.m. - 10:00 p.m.

Greenway Closure Notice
A short portion of the Greenway trail will be closed at the Cannonsburgh Trailhead area for asphalt repairs on Wednesday, September 3, 2014 and will reopen Thursday, September 4, 2014. The trailhead parking area will remain open during this time.

Greenway Closure NoticeGreenway Closure
The Stones River Greenway will be closed from the Manson Pike Trailhead to the platform area of the Stones River Bridge starting Monday, August 25, 2014, so that a sewer pipeline force main can be safely installed in the area.

The Manson Pike Trailhead will still be open for parking, and Greenway users may turn left from the trailhead to go north to use the trail. Access to Fortress Rosecrans and the Lytle Creek trail going toward Cannonsburgh will also be available at the platform of the Stones River Bridge.

The estimated timeframe for this portion of the project is approximately 40 days with the projected re-opening date of October 20, 2014.

Murfreesboro Parks and Recreation Department will notify the public of the bridge closures through signage, the city’s Facebook page, and updates on the City’s website. The public may also call Murfreesboro Parks and Recreation Department at (615) 890-5333.
