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 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.

Just part of the nice network of greenways in Knoxville, which seem to be ever expanding. Enjoyable for a walk or bike, through the woods, neighborhoods, parks, along the creeks and river.

I rode on this greenway as part of a bike ride from Bearden Elementary School to the South Knoxville bridge. The trail itself is very nice and is used by many people and cyclists. They were doing some construction work near part of the trail and it was a bit dirty but that is understandable.

It's a nice bike trail. Not to hilly and you will see lots of turtles on the logs sunning. We go as far as UT gardens and that's worth a look at too.

This is a nice greenway that crosses several small creeks and has plenty of shade. Access is convenient and you have an option of stopping at a small shopping center at one end for a snack or something to drink before heading back. It makes for a nice afternoon and is friendly for walkers, bikers, and pets.
