James White Greenway offers a beautiful pathway along the Tennessee River. The James White Greenway is located parallel to the Tennessee River connecting directly to the Neyland Greenway (3.0 miles) at the mouth of First Creek (at Ruth's Chris Steak House) and continuing east to connect to Governor Ned McWherter Riverside Landing Park under the James White Parkway bridge. There, it links north to Morningside Greenway (1.6 miles). The City has plans to continue this greenway across the James White Bridge and eventually to connect to the Will Skelton Greenway (3.62 miles) at Island Home Park. The James White Greenway runs along the Tennessee River for its entire one-mile stretch, offering a scenic experience for its patrons, as well as the opportunity to view wildlife that may be seen along waterfronts in East Tennessee.

Good connector on a run from East Knoxville to the river greenways and Morningside Park has improved since they built the new condos nearby. Running along James White Parkway is not the best though :/

This is a nice section of the overall Knoxville greenway system. It's perfectly flat and runs right along the river. You can park at the east end and walk/bike/etc. to the Neyland end, where you can continue on or detour into downtown Knoxville. It goes by the boathouses, so you can get a look at some huge yachts if that's your thing.
