Mill Mountain Greenway Description

The Mill Mountain Greenway provides residents and visitors to Roanoke with a nice connection from the city's downtown to Mill Mountain Park. Within the park, you can explore numerous hiking trails, including one that will take you up to the summit of Mill Mountain. The park also includes a zoo.

Closer to the northern end of the trail, you'll pass through Elmwood Park, a popular concert and festival venue.

Note that a portion of the trail, along Walnut Avenue, is not a separated trail; travelers can either take the sidewalk or bike on-road there.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at the southern end of the trail in Discovery Center in Mill Mountain Park.

On the northern end of the trail, on-street parking is available in downtown Roanoke.
