Riverwalk Greenway (Pigeon Forge) Description

Riverwalk Greenway is a beautiful multiuse trail in the resort town of Pigeon Forge in east Tennessee. While the town is better known for its tourist attractions (it's home to Dollyworld, a Dolly Parton-themed amusement park!), the Riverwalk Greenway is still worth a visit, a place to take a time-out within a serene natural setting. The paved trail begins by looping behind the Pigeon Creek Community Center, before it meets the West Prong of the Little Pegion River. Staying close to the river, the trail stretches south to the Island entertainment complex and then continues down to Patriot Park where it closes with a 1/2-mile loop. 

The trail is open for use 24 hours a day, thanks to the lighting provided. Benches are placed at intervals along the route. Pedestrians, cyclists, inline skaters, and users with leashed dogs are all welcome to enjoy. 

Parking and Trail Access

Trail access points include:  

  • Patriot Park (186 Old Mill Ave), which features a walkway flanked by of all 50 states (nearby parking available). 
  • LeConte Convention Center, which has a giant parking lot off Teaster Lane.  
  • Butler Street at Ashley Avenue (no parking, just foot or bike access). 

Riverwalk Greenway (Pigeon Forge) Reviews

I really have to congratulate Pigeon Forge on this one. This trail along the river is very well done. If you park at Patriot Park you leave the park and cross the street then follow sidewalk past several houses before you get to where it looks like bike trail so it can be confusing if you don't know that. Also when you get to the Island you have to cross a couple of bridges and take a right where the trail goes behind a building back to the river so also confusing. My first time on this trail I had to ask an Island employee. Very worth it though! Trail goes under the bridges so you are not crossing the parkway.
