Walked trail Saturday dec 15 2017 pretty basic asphalt path. Runs along side a creek there is a part near Sardis road entrance that goes off into the woods more like a real trail then loops back to the asphalt. Looked pretty safe lots of people further down towards 74 side looks a little more sketchy but all in all decent little walk.

Great trail system for kids and beginners. Make sure you explore paths on the other side of the pedestrian bridges.

Did an impromptu hike, NICE! Lots of people out on a Saturday. Only did 4 miles but very scenic. I entered the park near the lake (off Monroe Road) and looped around a few trails. Mainly asphalt on the main road but more than a few dirt roads and bridges. Crossed several bridges crossing the creek. There's a nice dog park there for dogs if you're interested. Looks like you can also ride your bike pretty easily and people are mainly compliant about walking and riding on the right, passing on the left (with announcements). This trail is a part of the Greenway Trail System that will eventually reach South Carolina in the near future. The Greenway Trails pass through many different neighborhoods, so expect a little different terrain and refreshing people. Good luck and enjoy !

It's kind of boring unless you're just hanging out with friends and you need some air or somewhere to walk.

It is an easy green way to ride with the bike. Great for family and keep muscles hot away from cars.

Went on a snowy day in January. The Lucas Grist Mill looked like a wonderful anachronism covered in snow. I'll definitely be back.

Average trail. Nothing interesting on the trail. Andrew Jackson museum was good, though.

Great for bikes,many paved and dirt & gravel roads suitable for hybrid or mountain bikes. Trails are wide to allow for both walkers & bikes comfortably. Mostly even ground ,many switch backs,lots of space to romp around in. Small lake. Both shaded and open areas.

Good for biking - I think a hike would get a little boring. Most of it is paved - with the exception being the connecting portion between the two greenways. Goes right underneath I-485, which is kinda neat. Good for the kids - but very crowded at times!

This trail is great if you aren't able to leave the city but still want to get out and move. The trails are really well maintained. After about 10am things can get a little crowed, but most places the trail is wide enough to pass without any problems
