Hugh Jack Stubbs Recreational Trail

A Great Year Round Trail

October, 2022 by casperhall1996

The trail includes four fitness stations along the way.

Shelby Farms Greenline

awesome trail

September, 2022 by iverywood

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.

Shelby Farms Greenline

an easy trail for a long flat run

August, 2022 by claire.louisa.knowles

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.

Wolf River Greenway

Kennedy Park 5K Loop: Trail Run

August, 2022 by claire.louisa.knowles

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).

Wolf River Greenway

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.

Delta Heritage Trail State Park

Delta Heritage Trail (North) July 2021

July, 2021 by isaleeann

This was a nice trail with a lot of shade and wide gates. We did Elaine visitors center to Lake View and back. Trail was smooth and paving good. Enjoyed the short side ride to see Lake View and read about it’s history. The restrooms were clean at visitors center and we changed out of our bike clothes there. Like to ride balance of trail another time.

Big River Crossing

Memphis trail closures

June, 2021 by matthewhicks001

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.

Delta Heritage Trail State Park

Great for families; should be a major cycling destination when complete

September, 2020 by apalexander

The trail surface is very smooth right now - we rode from Barton to Lakeview (20 miles round trip) on gravel/cross bikes with our children. The gravel is small and well groomed, and most road bike riders would not have problems with it; it is definitely suitable for hybrids. The visitors center is easy to find, has ample parking, and has clean bathrooms. Almost all road crossings are over low traffic minor dirt roads or driveways, so we did not have to stop for traffic while riding. The trail is shaded, in parts by very large, old trees. The state parks have secured a large matching grant from the Walton Foundation and will have all 84 miles complete within five years. Nearby Mississippi River State Park has a lovely RV campground and more roads to explore by bike.

Delta Heritage Trail State Park

An absolutely beautiful trail BUT not for folks on road bikes or hybrids

August, 2020 by sde63

We "put in" at the Helena Junction trailhead and had to turn around at Barton - only 2 miles into our ride. When we read that the trail was crushed rock and that it was in excellent condition we thought that we'd see a Katy Trail type of surface ("The Katy" is one of our faves).

Such is not the case. The crushed limestone that we encountered was #57 or #5. We expected #8.

It was a bummer that we had to abort our ride, especially after having driven for two hours to get there. It was a beautiful day, and the trail scenery is spectacular.

Just do not attempt this unless you are prepared for a trail bike experience.

Delta Heritage Trail State Park

Amazing views + shady lanes

July, 2020 by scott.j.pursley

My wife and I rode this trail a week ago - started in Watson and finished in the very sleep town of Arkansas City. First 9 miles were shaded with trees on both sides. Trail of crushed limestone in excellent shape. Final 14 miles were paved road along the top of the Mississippi river levee. Amazing views from top of the levee. You can see for miles across forests, lakes, and fields of soybeans and corn. Town of Arkansas City is a shadow of its former heyday before the 1927 floods. Lots of history there. Will do this ride again.

Shelby Farms Greenline

Weekly ride!

What a great trail to unwind. No difficult passages. Well shaded and surface is smooth.

Delta Heritage Trail State Park

Flat, well-maintained, pretty. A great ride.

July, 2020 by scott.j.pursley

I rode from Lexa to Elaine today (~21 miles) on a hybrid in 90-95 degree heat. Overall condition of the trail is excellent, however, the first 2 miles (Lexa to Barton) were a little rough, with some loose stones. Those first two miles probably need a little grooming / reconditioning. First 14 miles of the trail (Lexa to Lake View) is generally shady which helps a LOT. Very pretty. The last 7 miles between Lake View and Elaine has very little shade, running between massive fields of rice, soybeans, and corn. These fields are actually quite scenic, and was a nice change from just the trail surrounded by trees. I'll be doing this trail again. Excellent.
