Point Lookout Trail

Trail run

January, 2022 by misch.7

First trail run of my NC citizenship and it was awesome. All paved, beautiful day and beautiful scenery. Will definitely be back. All uphill followed by all downhill. 7.1 round trip.

Wilma Dykeman Greenway

Great connector

December, 2021 by funkykittyrecords

The Wilma Dykeman Greenway is a sweet, new, multi-use trail. There are walkers, runners, skaters, dogs, and families along the paved walking path.

The dedicated two-way bike lanes make riding this a breeze. There is room for faster bikers to pass and no worry about cars as the bike lanes are protected by a low concrete barrier.

This trail takes you all along the River Arts District, where you can stop for coffee, food, galleries, and more. There are crossings, which should definitely be used because the road is pretty busy.

There are plenty of places to park for free, either along the route on the street or in the lots along Riverside Drive/Lyman St. Parking closest to Smoky Park Supper Club or White Duck Taco will give you the entire expanse of the trail rather than starting in the middle. Take the greenway all the way to Amboy Rd, where you can continue to go to French Broad River Park and the Greenway through Carrier Park, all the way out to Hominy Creek River Park.

*I've also rollerbladed on the Wilma Dykeman Greenway. There can be debris (branches, stones, etc.) in the bike lanes and the walking path, making it slightly treacherous for blading.

Tweetsie Trail

First 4m is Pretty but that’s it

October, 2021 by enlehman76

We are visitors in Asheville and have been trying out different Greenway bike trails over the past week and decided to drive to TN to try this one. The crushed gravel is very fine so isn’t too difficult to ride on with a road bike. The first 4 miles are pretty but after that it runs parallel to a very busy street full of truckers and much traffic and goes by strip malls, many street crossings, etc.. We turned around about 3/4 way into the ride as the street was so unpleasant to ride next to. Was nice to experience it but wouldn’t make the drive to go back. The Thermal Belt Trail in NC was nicer than this for a longer Greenway that’s more scenic. We met some locals there who said there’s a really pretty paved greenway in Kingston TN but we didn’t get a chance to try that one out.

Mendota Trail

Progress proceeding along nicely!

October, 2021 by rigiddishjr

Walked the North end to where Trestle 16 was located. Beautiful area. I can't wait until the whole trail is done!!

Point Lookout Trail

Great ride uphill

October, 2021 by swordinhandnow

Real scenic. Steady rise. Just the right distance to and from.

Riverwalk Greenway (Pigeon Forge)

no bike riding today

October, 2021 by eggznham

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.

Construction at Patriot Park. Curtails almost half of the loop around the park.

Wilderness Road Trail

Fall Ride

September, 2021 by kerr37938

Trail surface is mostly ground gravel of cinder consistency . Larger gravel on the trail is near the visitor center and some of the road crossings . The section west of the Gibson Station parking lot is no longer maintained. I used my road bike with no issues except for slippage in a couple loose cinder , sandy areas. Overall this is a lovely trail with little traffic. Saw 10 or so hikers and no bikers, on a Saturday. I have been riding this trail for many years. There is lots of new activities to do in the park by the visitor center and new walking trails open . You could easily spend a day with the kids here .

French Broad River Greenway

It is what it is

September, 2021 by ruanecate

I use the bike trails in West Asheville several times a week, as they are relatively flat and run along the river. But the connections between stretches of trail can be dangerous. For example, if I want to ride from the new RAD trail toward Carrier Park, I must do so along a stretch of Amboy with no trail, nor even a road shoulder. (The only other option is to go under the bridge through French Broad Park, which is often muddy.) And if I want to continue in the RAD to Craven Street parking, I must cross the road where the trail suddenly is one way instead of side-by-side two way. Except for the stretch through RAD, a cyclist must contend with dog walkers and toddlers on tricycles. Bottom line: wear a helmet!

Erwin Linear Trail

Nice trail, but...

July, 2021 by david.lee.byrd

There are too many bikes and today I encountered a couple on motor scooters. Signs say motorized vehicles are prohibited but there is no enforcement.

The bridge work is done (June 2021). Whole length of trail is currently passable and in great shape.
