Description Suggest an Edit

The Wolf River Greenway runs for nearly 2 miles along the south side of the river through the Wolf River Nature Area. The trail provides access to picnic facilities, restrooms, and wildflower meadows along its paved corridor. You'll also find interpretive stops, aquatic plant displays, tree identification, rest areas with benches, butterfly gardens, bat houses and much more. The trail connects to the Germantown Greenway near 6500 Wolf River Boulevard.

Southeast of Walnut Grove Road, another trail takes you across the river to Shelby Farms Park and a network of other Germantown trails. The Wolf River Greenway was designated as a National Recreation Trail in 2012.
