The Alexander Trail

Located on the grounds of Thompson's Station Park and Heritage Park, this natural surface trail meanders approximately 3 miles through beautiful wooded and hilly landscape. Bikers, hikers, trail runners and walkers have the opportunity to travel back and forth from the Heritage schools, over the hill to Thompson's Station Park. Trail heads are located on both sides.

South Trail Head - Located behind the ballfields at Heritage Park
Trail Head - Located behind last pavillion at Thompson's Station Park

What to expect:

HIKING - Moderate; The terrian is steep in some sections, especially when nearing the top of the hill.
BIKING - Moderate; The terrain is not technical, however, the grade in many sections make biking difficult.
Dogs are welcome! Please note: Some users of the trail have been known to contact animal control if a dog is off leash. Protect yourself and your dog by keeping them on a leash. Thank you.

The Peter Jenkins Trail

Located on approximately 17 acres of open space within the community of Wyngate Estates, a residential subdivision of 555 homes located off Duplex Road in Spring Hill, TN, this walking trail connection project connects the established Peter Jenkins Walking Trail with the Allendale Elementary School sidewalk. Children now have the option to walk or bike to school, resulting in decreased traffic volume and increased physical activity!

This "small" connection project is just the first step of a larger vision for Spring Hill's Master Greenways Plan. In the future, the Peter Jenkins Walking Trail will not only connect to Allendale Elementary School, but will connect to other schools, neighborhoods and recreation centers; eventually connecting to neighboring towns, to complete a regional greenways plan that is in place.h from the Heritage schools, over the hill to Thompson's Station Park. Trail heads are located on both sides.
