Emily B. Taylor Greenway Description

Stretching from Veteran’s Park to Worth St, in western Mt. Airy, is the Emily B. Taylor Greenway. The trail has been a hit with residents since the its construction in 2001, and remains arguably one of the best-used park facilities in the city. With a its hard surface and gentle grade, it’s accessible to trail users of different ages and abilities. It’s also pet-friendly. The greenway offers scenic views of Lovills Creek, whose bends and curves it follows closely, but it also connects to the historic downtown as well as industrial and shopping areas, which make it useful for commuting as well as recreation. Every quarter mile you’ll spot a granite marker.

The trail connects to the Ararat River Greenway on the east side of town via a recently built 2.2-mile connector trail. Together with the 2.2 miles of greenway along Ararat River, that means that one could essentially ride or jog continuously for over 6.5 miles.

Parking and Trail Access

To access the trail you can park at Veterans Memorial Park (691 West Lebanon St), a place that also features camp- and play-grounds. Other possible parking spots are at the Roses Shopping Center (695 Independence Blvd); and on Bluemont Road behind the movie theater.
