Gallatin is on the move. Not just with its unprecedented growth, amazing cultural events and thriving local businesses, but Gallatin has become a model city for many unique, sustainable and innovative area adventures and experiences that are perfect for exploration and enjoyment. We take a look at three amazing Gallatin parks and areas of adventure that will most certainly bring a ton of fun and exploration to any experience.

LOCK 4 MOUNTAIN BIKE PARK

1598 Lock 4 Road

Mountain Bike Park

As one of the most popular mountain bike parks in all of the southeast, riders come from all around to experience the Lock 4 trails. The trails are divided into three different sections, totaling nine miles in length and giving riders of all levels and ages a chance to enjoy mountain biking along scenic trails with plenty of views of the river and waterfront. The trails can also be used for trail running and hiking explorations, as well!

MIRACLE PARK

240 Champion Drive

All-inclusive playground, ball field and pedal park

Miracle Park is the largest, all-inclusive and all-ADA-accessible park in Tennessee. Six acres of fun and facilities for those with special and sensory needs. The park contains no stairs, humps or obstacles that would otherwise make portions inaccessible or a challenge to some and contains safe zip lines, sensory panels, merry-go-rounds, and wheelchair-accessible swings and slides. Even an all-turf, completely flat, wheelchair-accessible baseball diamond gives everyone a chance to swing for the fences. Miracle Park is truly one of a kind and we are so happy to have it here in Gallatin!

STATION CAMP GREENWAY

2115 Long Hollow Pike

Greenway, biking & walking trail

The Station Camp Greenway is a scenic, 4.1 mile, paved walking/riding trail, that parallels Station Camp Creek. With the trailhead beginning at the Historic Douglass-Clark House, this winding, flat paved trail provides the perfect serenity for a day hike or evening stroll. With a small trail bridge passing over the creek as you near the lower greenway area, the calm creek's tranquil waters provide a picturesque beauty and unmatched serenity so close to home.
