Truman Linear Park Trail Description

Located in southern Savannah, the Truman Linear Park Trail is a multiuse path that parallels the Truman Parkway and Casey Canal for a majority of its 3.1-mile route. Including the Lake Mayer Loop Path at the trail's southern end, the route is 4.5 miles long. 

The ADA-accessible trail has a wide concrete surface, a timber boardwalk section, and two bridges. The route has lighting, security cameras, and emergency call boxes. Lake Mayer Park (1850 E Montgomery Cross Rd) has a playground, sports fields and courts, a skate park, picnic tables, restrooms, and parking.

Winding south from DeRenne Avenue, the trail passes the Scarborough Sports Complex before reaching the loop around the lake. The off-road trail provides various recreational opportunities and serves as a commuting option. There are restaurants, shops, local businesses, and much more, along and near the trail.  

Truman Linear Park Trail is the first segment of Tide To Town, Savannah’s urban trail network. Further development will extend the trail north from DeRenne Avenue towards Daffin Park, where it will connect with the Police Memorial Trail. When complete, the trail will be 6 miles long. With the Lake Mayer Loop Path and the Daffin Park Trail Loop, it will form a 9-mile off-road route connecting two major recreational areas--Lake Mayor and Daffin Park. 

Parking and Trail Access

Chatham Area Transit provides access to the trail. Visit the CAT website for more information. 

Parking is available at Lake Mayer Park (1850 E Montgomery Cross Rd).

Truman Linear Park Trail Reviews

Nice new path

Hubby and I biked from Isle of Hope to Norwood tavern and then down Central Rd. to pick up this trail. There are some tricky road crossings, but the lights work in your favor. The path itself was really nice! Smooth divided concrete down to Bacon Park and around Lake Myers then back again. We continued on following Harry S Truman highway, but the path remained insulated from the highway noise and very shady! Once we reached Derenne, we turned around since the path was going to end soon. I hope they decide to extend this trail to Deleseps St.
