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.

Great Trail. Shaded on hot days. Great beginner trail. I have been on the trail 3 times and each time I have encountered friendly helpful bikers

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

I enjoy parking at Earth Fare and riding downtown , or at least to Tyson Park and back. A few hills but pretty easy riding.

I sought out greeways for a safe way to use my bike and stay away from vehicle traffic and was rewarded with this gem in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Kingtson Pike and Sutherland Avenue. This greenway can be accessed about 5 blocks west of River Sports (on Sutherland) and Pilkay Road on your left. There is... More

Parked at Ruth Chris Steak House and took Greenway to Neyland Stadium. A pretty good walk but pleasant. Runs along the river past the Vol Navy. If you park in the pay for parking area, the cost is $25.00 but you get a voucher for $25.00 off your dinner at Ruth Chris.
