This may be my favorite trail in the Nashville area, the Cumberland River Bicentennial Trail. Oh my goodness, this hike was so enjoyable! We explored this trail as a fun way to get in a few hours for the crazy exercise competition I was doing. This place was certainly worth the drive, particularly because I was using a stroller. I'm looking forward to doing the entire 6.5 miles again - with kids on bikes!Sweet little girl gave me a tiny bit of back-ache by the end.Running, running - lots and lots of running! This used to be a railroad strip. When the railway stopped being used for trains, they paved it. The trail is lovely - flat, smooth, and going through all types of terrain.
Happy Valentine's Day~:-) Near the turn-around point, you get to cross a huge trestle. It was so high and crossed a huge, wide river. It was enough to scare this Momma. "Everyone in the stroller!" In the course of my fast and frightened pace ("What would I do if the children fell in the river??!?!?!"), we lost Polly Jane's bow. On our way back across, this sweet old man biker was waiting for us. He found her bow! I would have stopped to talk, but I was on the trestle! Eeek! We thanked God for the kind man once we were safely across.
"Haven, where did your sandwich go?"
Then we came home and baked something delicious - for Daddy, I'm sure.2.14.2011
