Stones River National Battlefield welcomes bicyclists to explore the park. The park allows bicycles, including electric bicycles (e-bikes), on all paved trails and roads. Bicycles are not allowed on unpaved trails or in the National Cemetery. The park has provided several bike racks around the Visitor Center for your convenience. The park is also connected to the Stones River Greenway, allowing visitors to visit most of the different units of the battlefield by bike.

If you choose to ride your bike in the park, please remember to:

  • Wear a helmet.
  • Ride with traffic when riding on a road.
  • Stay alert for vehicles and pedestrians.

BICYCLE TOURS

Join a ranger for guided bicycle tours of Stones River National Battlefield on select Saturdays in the spring and fall. Get healthy exercise, reduce your carbon footprint, and learn about the major Civil War battle that occurred here in late 1862 and early 1863. This program will take visitors through the battlefield using the tour road and the Stones River Greenway.

Visitors aged 16 and under must wear helmets. We encourage all participants to wear helmets and bring a water bottle. This is a 5-mile plus ride with a moderate pace and is not recommended for children under the age of 10.
