*Sumner Trails Chapter of Tennessee Trails will lead a 4-mile hike rated EASY on the Ashland City Bicentennial Greenway. Back in the early 1900's the Tennessee Central Railroad chugged along this route going from Nashville to Clarksville where it connected with the giant Illinois Central Railroad. The old T.C. ceased operating in 1968 but you can still see evidence of the railroad which eventually became the greenway. This hike is a classic Rails-To-Trails Greenway and follows the old railroad grade on a paved surface which makes it a nice flat winter hike. The highlight of this trail is the iconic large iron trestle over Sycamore Creek. You won't need your boots or poles for this one. Meet for carpooling at Hendersonville First Presbyterian Church, 172 W. Main parking lot at 9 a.m. For further info contact Chugging Al at or call/text at (615) 454-7673.
