The Little Tennessee River Greenway follows the Little Tennessee River and a tributary, Cartoogechaye Creek. There are plans to extend the greenway from Suli Marsh, at Arthur Drake Road to Lake Emory, another 2 miles.
The greenway meanders through wetlands, railroad cuts left behind by the Tallulah Falls Railroad, alongside pastures and through upland forest. Its surface is a mix of paved and non-paved (gravel) sections.
The greenway includes benches, picnic shelters, fishing piers, exercise stations, a playground with water feature, canoe put-ins and much flora and fauna.
Parking is available at the northern trailhead (123-145 Arthur Drake Rd, Franklin), at Wesley's Playground in Big Bear Park (573 NE Main St, Franklin), at the Salali Lane entrance (off Fox Ridge Rd), and at the Tassee picnic shelter (862 Ulco Dr, Franklin).
