    Speaking of Williamson - anyone heard about these trails they are building in Brentwood? They are building a park at the end of Split Log on Wilson. Someone told me 50 miles of trails and some of the for MTB? Anyone know what is up?

    Well, I answered my own question. From this link : https://www.brentwood-tn.org/index.aspx?page=756

    Park Master Plan

    The City of Brentwood recently completed a master plan to guide the future development of Smith Park. The plan calls for the park to be accessed from a new road that would connect to Wilson Pike opposite Split Log Road to create a four-way intersection. This new access road will include a bridge over the CSX railroad and elimination of the existing at-grade driveway railroad crossing. Planned internal park improvements include renovation of the Ravenswood home and surrounding historic facilities for use by the public for special events (i.e. weddings, corporate events, etc.), development of hiking trails and associated trail heads within the wooded areas of the property, construction of four unlit multipurpose athletic fields used primarily for practice purposes, and a paved multi-use trail that will connect to the City's existing trail network. The plan also includes an area reserved for possible development of segregated mountain bike trails.

    Engineering and architectural design work is currently underway on the first phase of park improvements, to include the new access road, limited hiking trail development and associated parking area, renovation of the Ravenswood home and parking areas to support public use of the historic home. This first phase of improvements is scheduled to be complete and the park open to the public in spring of 2014.

    Wow. That is interesting. This does look good but will SORBA be with it? What will it be like? This sounds cool, but im curious.

    Sorba has not been involved in this trail. I emailed the Parks Board president asking for more information. I'll see what he comes back with.
