Townsend Historical Trail

"Trail" next to a highway

July, 2022 by rcsauce

The "trail" is pavement and mostly right next to the highway. We chose to cross the bridge at the end and ride Old Walland Hwy which had light traffic. The road rolled a little and had some pot holes as it stayed mostly next to the river.

As for the "Trail" it-self, it would a better representation of a Trail if there was vegetation on both sides.

Over all mostly a road ride but not an unpleasant day.

Eureka Trail

Quiet, well maintained, Athens Trailhead amazing

May, 2022 by lucinda.f.peters

The trail is well maintained, very wide, shady, and offers a beautiful ride. We rode bicycles and the gravel was compact making for a nice trip. Lovely scenery with quiet surroundings with sounds of birds & water ¿. The Athens Trailhead has an extremely nice parking area with restrooms. Bicycle maintenance station is available too. ¿. We were disappointed with the horse droppings on the trail. It only seems fair that horse owners clean up after themselves given dog owners do the same.

Veterans Boulevard Greenway

It’s Ok

May, 2022 by melissacamire

Not so great if you are expecting a bike trail that’s scenic. This runs the length of a major road. 3 lanes most of the ride. It was more of riding down a sidewalk.

Melton Lake Greenway

one of the best paved trail in Knoxville

May, 2022 by digitalpubs

This is my go to bike path. I start at Haw Ridge and ride to Elza Gate - 6miles one way. Great round trip ride! Very pretty scenery and some challenging hills.

Maryville-Alcoa Greenway

Blount County Courthouse to Pearson Springs Park

March, 2022 by lucinda.f.peters

Trail route included crossing Lamar Alexander and Montvale Rd. Traffic was respectful on both roads. Caution needed. Will park at the church next time. After crossing montvale and entering greenway to the parks, it was lovely seeing ducks, a heron, and bustling creek beside the greenway. There were alot of people on the trail.

Maryville-Alcoa Greenway

Newer Alcoa Stretch

December, 2021 by greg.tucker311

My wife & I rode this stretch for the first time 12.26.21. Great intermediate ride with a few inclines and bridges but mostly level. All hard surfaces and some of this trail is lighted but not all. GPS did not get us to the starting point correctly. Best way to find the parking for this starting point coming off Old Knoxville Highway is to turn on to Williams Mill Rd and turn on to Alcoa Trail and parking is just a short piece on the right before crossing pistol creek. Trail actually goes along side or crosses creek in a few places. Parking did have some lighting. No bathroom facility at the parking point.

no bike riding today

Started from patriot park, crossed street to start trail through a neighborhood, rode .5 of a mile and unable to continue due to closed crossing and construction for water pipes. Hopefully will open soon but we will not be here.
