lots of signs , marked well

This is a great trail for biking, walking or jogging. It is well-kept up, marked well, and seemingly safe. There are plenty of signs, and crossings are nice.

This is a great trail for biking or running! We loved it! It was a great find for a couple of runners in their first trip to the city!

This is the best and longest bike trail in Knoxville and it is one of the best I have ever been on. Go all the way past Iams to the Forks in the River Industrial Park.

The Third Creek Greenway is one of my favorite sections of the Knoxville Greenway. My favorite route is to park in Earth Fare's parking lot, travel down through Tyson Park (great place to stop and take a playground break- if kids are in tow), during the spring/summer a ride alongside the UTK trial gardens is nice (turn right once you...

This greenway is very safe and clean. I've never had a bad experience on it. I have even biked to work before on it.

Beautiful and peaceful paved trail with wooden and concrete bridges.. Perfect for a quiet walk or a bike ride up and down slight hills.

Nice and quiet. Elevation changes are not too bad for Knoxville. Good parking available in Earthfare lot. Can go all the way to the UT Demonstration gardens along the creek.

We park at Earth Fare Bearden and take the greenway to Tyson park and back. The hills are soft and rolling, nothing too bad. Most of the trail is covered with shade which is great in the summer, but be cautious in the winter. Because there is so much shade, in the winter the trail tends to ice over in... More
