SATURDAY JANUARY 26, 2019: ASHLAND CITY BICENTENNIAL GREENWAY. 4 miles - EASY. Meet 9:00 AM. This hike is a classic Rails-To-Trails Greenway.  Back in the early 1900’s the Tennessee Central Railroad chugged along this route going from Nashville to Clarksville where it connected to the big Illinois Central Railway. The old T.C. ceased operating in 1968, but you can still see evidence of the railway which eventually became the greenway. This greenway is as flat as any hike you have ever been on and paved all the way, which makes it a nice winter walk. For the first portion of the trai,l there is swamp on the left and steep bluff on the right, but then the trail enters more of an open landscape for the last portion crossing several bridges over creeks and over water from the Sycamore Creek embayment. The highlight of this trail is the iconic large iron trestle bridge over Sycamore Creek.  After the hike, we’ll go to lunch at Riverview Restauant overlooking the Cumberland River. Meet for carpooling at Hendersonville First Presbyterian Church parking lot at 9 AM CT or at the Mark’s Creek trailhead at 10 AM CT . For directions or further info contact Choo Choo Al at ballallenger@aol.com.
