This paved greenway begins at the heart of Morningside Park. The quiet neighborhood trail takes a shaded route through the park, with fitness stations placed at intervals alongside it, before emerging out on Hazen Street and weaving south through the residential areas of east Knoxville. It joins Riverside Drive to duck underneath James White Parkway, and then intersects with the James White Greenway soon after at Riverside Landing Park. Walkers, runners, cyclists and users with leashed dogs are all welcome to enjoy it.
While you’re in Morningside Park, you may want to stop off at the Alex Haley Heritage Square (of “Roots” fame), which features a larger-than-life seated sculpture of the Pulitzer Prize winning author.
Beginning on I-40, take exit 388A for James White Parkway. Continue on SR 158, then take the Summit Hill Drive exit. Stay on Summit Hill Drive and then Dandridge Avenue for about 0.7 miles, then turn right onto Hazen Street. Morningside Park will be on your right.
