trail locations for Memphis, Tennessee

Nice, easy, paved trail. Always well maintained. Good place to walk in the mornings. Pretty in the fall.

I liked the rough terrain, but you can here the traffic which kinda took away from the feeling of isolation.

My absolute favorite place to run and hike in Memphis! One of the best secret spots. The trail is almost always maintained, unless you go right after a storm, and the staff are super friendly. 250ft of elevation gain over 4 miles. They are improving the park now to include a really cool nature center on other old golf course and replant the whole area with native plants and grasses.

This is my go-to trail in the area. The yellow trail stays dry and follows the Wolf River. Lots of bikers, hikers, runners, and families use this trail. Really good for an easy, non-technical trail.

This is one of my favorite places to walk my dog in. It's quiet and very beautiful. I like to stick to the paved areas here since mountain bikers tend to dominate the dirt.

Great place to start mountain biking (as I did). The trails are fun but watch out for sand accumulation when the river floods. I'm not a fan of trying to ride a bike through it.

Nice for a run. Good leg stretcher.

Meh. The trail itself is challenging enough, and it's pretty when you're not right up next to the road, but half the time I was hiking, I kept smelling human waste. Not sure if it was all the stagnant water or the dumping station for the campground. And they're apparently doing construction? I go hiking to get away from human noise. For the novice hiker who enjoys a hike close to civilization, this is an ideal trail.

Great for beginners. Peaceful. Will see wildlife. Very cool old tombstones inside. Gave it 4 stars because it is not well marked.

I got to the visitor center and the park ranger named Tony was very helpful and friendly. He passed out a copy of the trail to me and I was off on my way. I started at the trail head across the street and I was off. The trail was marked well and very enjoyable. Tons of birds and squirrels and many trees have signage on them as well. I will do it again!

Loved it! Nice clean path that is easy to follow. Keep an eye out for the bikers.

This is not an easy trail for young children like my 7 and 9 year old it was hard for the adults it was medium unless your wearing a 40 lb vest like my hiking partner was carrying. It is pet friendly and Chucalissa is close by

Nice ride, but too long for the punch.

An amazing contradiction from history to modern; from old deep south to music and then there is the mighty Mississippi River. It is flat most of the way, but when you get to Vicksburg, take Lovers Lane up to the National Cemetery. This reminder of the horrors of the Civil War is the highest point between Memphis and New Orleans. From the cemetery there is an awesome view of the delta.
