The best part about the greenway is being able to get from place to place without car smog and fear of being hit by cars. The worst part about the greenway is that people let their dogs off the leash, so if your running or biking, beware.

I will say this. me and my family LOVE the greenway. It provides a safe AND scenic place to go biking. pretty much accessible from any part of town and they are always expanding it. In my opinion, one of the best bike paths in the area.

The greenways are all paved and wide and for the most part level. They meander along the Roanoke River for miles, often giving a really nice view of the city. There are at least 3 parks along the way with restroom facilities and playgrounds for the kids. You'll find strolling seniors, jogging youngsters, cyclists and Moms with baby strollers. We've never encountered anything but very friendly folks. There is more planned for the future.

Great for getting your exercise and depending on where you happen to be on the Greenway, you may see ducks,geese or other foul. Paved so you don't have to worry about getting your footing, the only thing to worry about is the occasional person on a bicycle.
With exception to the South end in S.E. Roanoke, you'll have relatively flat walking. Once you reach the Water Treatment Plant though you'll have to deal with those wonderful odors coming from it and just past it, it starts up a step incline.
Stay away from that end though and you'll do just fine.

I love the Greenway, and the many opportunities it gives you for exercise and relaxation. The areas are very well-kept, the paths are generally clean and clear. I have biked, walked, ran and skated the greenway, and love the views along the river, and the nice people you have an opportunity to chat with. Seriously one of the best things about our City!!
