South Tar River Greenway Description

South Tar River Greenway offers a pleasant, wooded route of just over 3 miles in the eastern North Carolina city of Greenville. The paved trail follows the southern bank of the Tar River with few road crossings, providing a nice option for families. Its western end traverses the Town Commons, which offers boat access to the waterway. When the trail reaches Green Mill Run, it heads southwest ending in Greensprings Park at a connection with the Green Mill Run Greenway.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available on the west end of the trail in the Town Commons (100 E. 1st Street) and, on the east end of the trail, in Greensprings Park (2500 E 5th Street).
