I’m starting to see quite a number of electric assisted bikes on the trail. The shame of that is a lot of the riders are inexperienced in handling the heavier bikes. They tend to ride faster without care of other riders. I saw someone on the trail today whose “scooter” was electric power with no pedals. It’s ruining the experience on the trail for the regular bikers. What a shame.
Drove up from MS to ride the green line and greenway trails. They are both incredibly maintained. Friendly walkers, runners and other riders. Obviously, the locals have poured tons of money into the construction and ongoing maintenance on both of these trails. Several miles of connecting trails from both. Be sure to venture into Shelby farms for several more easy, beautiful miles. Best kept secret in Memphis.
Started and finished near the correctional facility, where there’s a little parking lot and easy access to the trail. Lots of fellow runners as well as walkers and cyclists. Quite noisy with traffic, but quietens down as you head east and move closer to Shelby Farms & gets a little noisy again when you head into Cordova. Very shady most of the way and a welcome water station near the crossing near the correctional facility.
Parked at Wolf River Trail Head. Nice off path trails that are signposted (temporary signposts) to left and right of path. Left trail dead ends, right trail goes parallel to path and rejoins path. Nice underfoot in woods, lots of wooden board walks. Doesn’t connect to other parts of Wolf River Trail yet (as of August ‘22).
Heavy rain all last night & this morning which caused Wolf River & tributaries to flood parts of the trail. All was passable but several muddy areas. Took wrong turn several times due to intersections not marked which way to go. Enjoyed the ride.
Rode across river crossing. Beautiful trail. Decided to turn around and ride back across . Got to other side and found the riverwalk was closed because of construction.
What a great trail to unwind. No difficult passages. Well shaded and surface is smooth.
Smooth trail. Not too many road crossings. Lovely scenery.
I can’t wait to take this all the way down to the Mississippi River when done!!!
great easy ride ... nice varying views .woods, commerce, old remnants ... nice it's all paved.nice it has a spot to cross heavy traffic...
Pleasant and interesting ride near the river. Most of the trail is shaded. There are restrooms and water near the main trailhead about the center of the trail. It is easy to get confused where you are as there are a number of loops. I rode all the trails and loops in this section and totaled 12 miles.
There is a connector to Shelby Park where you can ride around a lake on s separate bike trail and adds about 5 miles to the ride.
Trail pavement is in excellent condition except for a few tree roots. The half of the trail close to downtown is densely shaded, and gets dark early in the evening. No water or toilets unless you detour into Shelby Park.
No guide is needed as the trail is an old rail line and you can't get lost.
