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.

Stone River Greenway Extension
The Stones River Greenway extension follows the West Fork of the Stones River from Old Fort Park to Barfield Crescent Park and includes four phases.  Phases 1, 2, and 3 are complete.  The remaining section of the trail starts at the termination point of Phase 3 on Barfield Road and extends the trail approximately three miles to Barfield Crescent Park.  The trail will include a bridge connection to the east side of the river and a small trailhead at Southridge Subdivision.  We are expecting to bid the Phase 4 project to award in January/February. Estimated construction start is March 2015 and is currently scheduled for 8 month completion.
