Just a paved Greenway. Fine place for locals to get exercise, nothing for sight seeing. Don't drive to Franklin just to see this.

That's right folks, no waterfalls. Except for an industrial pipe with water coming out of it.

Great for a quick walk in Franklin, nicely maintained, but no waterfalls!

There is no waterfall on this trail. Very misleading description. It has a nice paved walkway along the river and play areas for kids but NO WATERFALL, which is why I chose this trail. We wandered around looking for the waterfall for 30 minutes until a local informed us that there are no waterfalls off the greenway. The pictures posted here are not from this trail.

This description is very misleading! We drove 3 hours to get here and this is a paved trail! It is a greenway in the middle of downtown Franklin, NC.

We didn't do the entire trail because we were tired from an earlier walk. There are many different entrance points for this trail. We started at the beginning, but there were many stops along where more people joined - I'm assuming mostly locals.

I cannot possibly describe it.. it is just beautiful!! the whole area and small trails, I think you can hike here your entire life and find a new trail and something gorgeous waiting for you. They were all easy trails... I am out of shape for my standard and yet I did 20 miles in one breath.
