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.
