Default Walking trails w/o golfcarts

Are there any walking trails in TV? I see one in Springdale, not to be confused with the Fitness Trail which has the workout stations and is just about 1/2 mi.

The Springdale walking trail says it is about 1.3 miles. How do you get to it?

I know where the Springdale dog park is but don't see a walking trail without golf carts.

Are there any other walking trails where golf carts are not allowed?

The Springdale trail (which runs between Belle Meade Cr & BVD) is in essence a "multi modal trail" and you will find golf carts, walkers, joggers. & cyclists on it. However, I think you will find that it is not nearly as heavily traveled as normal MMT's, as for the most part it is not a trail to get from point A to B.

It is the trail that runs in front of the Springdale Dog Park.

Thank you, I'm not sure why then they call it and designate it as a walking trail.

I rarely see any golf carts on the Buena Vista median except after happy hour around Sumter Landing.

Walk the Springdale path down past the pool (which will be on your left) to Belle Meade Circle - Cross Belle Meade Circle and you will see a small parking lot. Enter that lot and you will find the fitness trail. It is a figure eight with exercise stations.

No bicycles allowed either.
