    Lock 4 at Old Hickory Dam
    Hamilton Creek (if ya like rocks) at Percy Priest Lake
    Montgomery Bell State Park (near White Bluff west of BNA)

    Easy paved ride from downtown to J Percy Priest Dam is the Shelby bottoms Greenway.

    Others may have a better selection/description for you.

    There is another down west of Columbia, but they ask that it be ridden only when dry and we just had some heavy rains.

    Hopefully other will chime in. Should e some historical postings with information here also.

    I'm and "Old Fred" rider so I'm not the best source of information.

    it has been dry here all week and no rain in the 5 day. all trails in and around nashville should be rideable. the closest trail to town is probably hamilton creek. east of nashville, north of 40, you have lock4 on the north side of old hickory lake and shutes branch on the south. hamilton creek is near the dam on percy priest lake. a little further south of that is jones mill. monty bell is a bit of a drive from nashville. it is west on 40 towards dickson. chickasaw trace in columbia should be good for riding as well.

    Glad this came up, I'll be there with my daughter's soccer team from north of Atlanta in mid May and was going to ask this. Tourney is in brentwood, staying in franklin.

    I don't know the area so miles from either above will help. I like big climbs with big downs if available or should I just skip bringing my tallboy and bring the single speed? I've only been to Nashville once and don't remember what the hills arer like.

    thanks

    yea didn't actual do any riding while i was there.. I saved the effort and just biking chattanooga on the way home. Trails looked to be very easy / old people friendly or a long drive out. Good thing for beer and late night country music

    The best resource you can use is www dot nashvillemountainbike dot com (sorry, I still can't post links until I have posted 10 times on this board). This site will give you a list of trails in the Nashville area as well as show a map of where all the trails are at. You will also be able to see a brief description of each trail and most have trail maps. Also, make sure you visit this sites message board to get an update on the trail conditions posted by the forum members.

    I hope this helps your planning and enjoy riding in Middle Tennessee!
