Fairview is extremely fun to ride as it can be challenging and fast or easy and slow. You can tell this multi-use trail was created by Mountain bikers as the numerous bridge crossings, log stacks and other fun additions make this fun.
The only thing this trail lacks is a better map and clearly defined loop options. It seems 2 or 3 rides and you'll get it down.
Yellow arrows mark the main trail. Since the park is on a peninsula, it's hard to get lost, although you may repeat parts of the trail if you don't pay attention. The trails are well maintained by the Lock 4 Trailblazers. Closed when wet.
From Nashville, take I-40 west to Hwy. 96. Go south to Hwy. 100 and drive west for 1.3 miles. Turn on Bowie Lake Drive. Parking and picnic areas are at the bottom of the hill. Trails usually close after rain. Call Bowie Nature Center at (615) 799-2484 ext. 820 to see if trails are open.
