The 9-mile Maryville-Alcoa Greenway connects Springbrook Park in Alcoa with the Bicentennial Greenbelt and Sandy Springs Park in Maryville. The greenway starts near the swimming pool in Alcoa's Springbrook Park, passes the schools, crosses Springbrook Road near Edison Road then follows Pistol Creek to Maryville.
Where the cities meet, Mile 0 begins on the greenway. From that point north through Alcoa is 5 miles; south the greenway is 4 miles to and around Maryville.
The greenway includes loops through the parks through which it passes, except for Sandy Springs, and offers links to shopping districts, businesses, nature areas, fitness stations and picnic pavilions.
There are numerous access points to the Maryville-Alcoa Greenway, including Maryville's parks: Sandy Spring, Pearsons Spring, Founders and Greenbelt. In Alcoa, access the greenbelt from Richard Williams Park and Hall and Springbrook parks.
