The Shelby Farms Greenline Trail runs for nearly 7 miles between Tillman Street in Binghampton (east of Midtown Memphis) and Farm Road in Shelby Farms. The greenline is built upon the bed of a former CSX Railroad line, which was abandoned in 2001. The trail is open from sunrise to sunset and night-time use is prohibited.
Parking and Trail Access
Access the trail where it crosses Tillman St., Highland St., High Point Terrace, Graham St., Waring Rd., Podesta St., Sycamore View Rd., Mullins Station Rd. and at Farm Rd. in Shelby Farms Park (between Mullins Station Road and Walnut Grove Road).
To get to the park, from the west, take I-240 to the Walnut Grove Exit and go east to the third stop light. The park is on both sides of the road. Turn left at the light. From the east follow Walnut Grove or Mullins Station until you see the signs for the park.
