Shelby Bottoms Greenway

beautiful trail along the river

August, 2020 by rogscouse

The trail is a flat trail following the Cumberland river. Great little path up to the Bridge over the river leading to a more strenuous Stones river trail. Connected to this trail is a disused airport which allows you to get some speed training in.

Stones River Greenway

beautiful trail

August, 2020 by rogscouse

Shaded and off road this beautiful trail runs along the Stones river. It’s a bit hilly in places but worth the effort. Connects to the Shelby bottoms trail which is less challenging but worthwhile

Bearden Village Greenway

Very nice trail

July, 2020 by wirenut7171

Knoxville has several trails and this one is connected to a couple of others including Sequoyah and 3 mile creek. There are plenty of trees, benches and shade. Rolling hills make it a fun ride. Holston Park has a bathroom and parking. It also connects to Southerland Ave in a couple of places if you want to stop for lunch.

Shelby Farms Greenline

Riverwalk Greenway (Pigeon Forge)

great family trail

July, 2020 by scruggstammy

Enjoyable ride amongst the river enjoying nature. Have the ability to visit the island and old mill with easy access. Lots of rest points for smaller children or older adults.

Riverwalk Greenway (Pigeon Forge)

Great family trail

July, 2020 by scruggstammy

Wonderful trail amongst river with lots of shade and benches for rest when needed! Very relaxing pace with ability to visit the Island and Old Mill from the trail.

Shelby Farms Greenline

Very nice ride

July, 2020 by jmcmanus0

Smooth trail. Not too many road crossings. Lovely scenery.

Stones River Greenway

headed back soon

July, 2020 by danielfarmer

i started at percy priest dam. very nice paved greenway. there is a bridge out (june 2020) a few miles in, from the dam side. there are a few options for going around it, but nothing all that orthodox. i accessed an apartment complex, then rejoined the greenway at a little ball park. not a huge detour. later, i took wrong turn near the old ravenwood golf course, but if you don't see a sign, just hug the river and that will get you through. otherwise i'd say the signage is good. i'm headed back soon to continue on to shelby bottoms and make a bigger ride out of it.

Kingsport Greenbelt

Fun for all ages

June, 2020 by cathyham

Nicely maintained trail with beautiful views of the river. Nice shade/sun combination and so peaceful. Goes through/near a nice park with playground, a mini golf, and a skate park, so the whole family will live this one.

Eureka Trail

For runs

June, 2020 by bhkimbrell

Very green trail with .10 mile markers which I thought were annoying at 1st then they became fun milestones Also, zero hills and great shade. Great trail for pace running

Richland Creek Greenway

Great varied trail

June, 2020 by janelleslawson

Love that it’s a loop and has such scenic variety. Great 3 mile distance.

Stones River Greenway

A favorite in Nashville!

June, 2020 by janelleslawson

Easy parking and multiple trail heads - near Kohl’s and the YMCA in Hermitage. A lot of shade and some incline variability.
