Tour De Wolf is located in Memphis, Tennessee inside of Shelby Farms Park. The trail is rated as easy to moderate and offers a number of activities such as hiking, mountain biking, trail running, or fishing and kayaking in one of the many lakes along the trail.
I've run the wolf at least 15-20 times, mostly prior to its recent reconstruction.
This is the hot trail of the ones in Memphis. By that I mean you spend much less time in the woods and out traversing scorching field or gravel tracks. As a run, I like it for a change of pace and the winding trails. I'd say it's a bit of a challenge for a newbie 10k. For better wood trails, do the colored trails along north of wolf river. Those are true trail with length of 3, 5,8 and so forth.
I do like the Tour de Wolfe trail, however do not be fooled by these reviews calling the trail any type of flat or particularly easy. Many of these reviews and trackings are in fact for another sets of trails kept by Shelby Farms adjacent to the "main" park. These trails( yellow, blue, and white) are particularly easy, root, and hill free. Tour de Wolfe however is a more difficult trail with many short steep climbs and a few longer one, roots are still not too bad but there are a few.
Great ride. If you stay right on yellow.. Very sandy :)

Nice area. Lots of decor for the xmas holidays set up. Also a fun playground for the kids with huge slides. Planned on running through the trails but didn't happen. Walked a little through the trail though with the kids and wife.
Great trail for a family bike ride. Nice variety of trail types, saw turkeys while riding the levee. It was hot in the sun, but nice an comfortable on the shaded trails. A beautiful oasis within the city, nice to have such a great set of trails that are so easily accessible.
Nice little trail. As others have said, it's not a difficult area. Nice to have that so close to the city. The wife and I saw about 6 deer moving along together today as we stopped to eat a snack and enjoy the quiet.
Was a little muddy after the heavy rains earlier in the week.
This is not at all a tough trail (it's very flat), but is a nice thing to have in the Memphis city limits. This six-mile loop is really meant for biking, but is great for hiking too. Winding by lakes and other strange things such as old rusted-out cars, it's a great one if you live in the city and don't have time to get somewhere else.
Great trail to run in the morning when it's nice outside. It was dry, so in the grass there were a lot of bugs, but nothing that bothers you. Overall great trail without many obstacles. I'd recommend it for someone starting out but could handle the 6-7 mile walk.
It is a good mountain biking trail. It is now rutted up bad.
I've hiked and biked this trail for many years. Enjoyable either way. Mostly bikers. On backside of trail when you get right behind that self storage place, look off the trail for the headstone of the couple who first settled the land. After that you'll also find a couple rusted out cars from the fifties off the trail. Happy trails!
