Stones River Greenway Hike. Donelson, Tn. 6 miles. easy.  This hike includes rolling hills, a close-up walk past two historic mansions, and considerable time walking directly alongside Stones River.  It takes place on a paved greenway. 8:30 am start time. We will start at the greenway trailhead at the parking lot of Kohl’s Hermitage, which is in Jackson Downs shopping plaza, just past Target.  From Briley Parkway exit 8, the driving distance along Lebanon Pike is 3.5 miles east.   Our hike will first head north along the greenway with a slight detour to the Stone Hall mansion, and then up into metro owned parkland, the former Ravenwood country club golf course to the crest of the hill and then back- about 2 miles.  Then from our starting point we follow the greenway along Stones River, including some boardwalks and some interesting sights.  We’ll bear right at the first junction and walk over to the Clover Bottom Mansion, an Italianate home built in 1958.  We retrace our footsteps back to parking lot.
