Offers hiking, bicycling and bird-watching, with trails converted from railroad tracks.
The 6.5-mile Cumberland River Bicentennial Trail (a.k.a. Ashland City Rail-Trail) goes past streams and waterfalls, across misty wetlands and on top jagged bluffs along the Cumberland River. Only 20 minutes northwest of downtown Nashville, it connects users with the great outdoors along two adjoining segments.
A mile north of town, the Marks Creek trailhead offers parking, portable toilets and helpful trail signage. This begins the Trestle Bridge trail section, an Ashland City park since 1997. This paved corridor runs 4 miles northwest to the Sycamore Harbor trailhead. The first mile leads past small waterfalls and dogwoods to the Turkey Junction Native Gardens & Comfort Station.
The onward route threads past lakes and a designated waterfowl area to an impressive railroad bridge. The trail soon ends at the Sycamore Harbor trailhead on Chapmansboro Road.
