Metro Greenways, Trails, and Open Space

Nashville Greenways

Nashville places a high priority on protecting and linking open space and building greenway trails.

There are over 190 miles of trails in Davidson County.

These include over 80 miles of off-street (primarily paved) multi-use greenway trails and various other types of trails within parks for walking, hiking, mountain biking and equestrian use.

Visit our Maps page for descriptions and locations of individual trails.

For a county-wide view, download the Greenways Brochure for paved and unpaved trails.

We also have an interactive map for the Greenways for Nashville.

Greenway efforts are guided by a master plan framework, led by the Greenways Commission and supported by the non-profit friends group, Greenways for Nashville.

The goal is to get a greenway trail within 2 miles of every community for recreation and transportation as well as to conserve green space, particularly floodplains and scenic viewsheds, along county waterways.

Greenways provide a network of trails featuring major open spaces and linking activity centers such as neighborhoods, schools, parks and commercial areas.
