Walking

Nice, clean and safe place to walk. Plenty of parking and clean bathrooms which are open M-F. The loop has park benches and some shady spots for taking a break. Wear a hat, bring water and wearing walking/jogging shoes. This is a heavily utilized walking/jogging path so it's a safe place for solo walkers/joggers.

Very nice area for a calm walk with your pet! Lots of seating area if a rest is needed. Plenty of space to play ball with your dog. Also some cool places for you to stop off at and observe nature! When we went it was busy due to the weekend and there were people walking dogs, riding bikes/skateboards, enjoying picnics, etc.

Love this park/trail. Right now (COVID19) bathrooms are only open M-F, just a heads up. It is safe and clean. I love running here by myself because there are so many families and people out and about.

Such a great park with lots of people going on picnics, dog walking and playing with their kids, and even people with their hammocks in trees. The new HGTV overlook is starting to look really good! The new addition around the lake was very nice as well. The downside is that the concrete on the trail was not even and in some places you really need to watch where you step. I highly recommend this park 10/10. The bathroom was closed during my visit on 4/22/2020 FYI.

Road biking

I recommend at least hybrid tires for this greenway due to the many bumpy parts of the path from nearby trees that have uprooted the blacktop. A few hills, a couple very steep and if the park is busy you will be dodging pedestrians at high speeds so be courteous and cautious. I've walked this loop in the past and would prefer that over biking most days.

Trail was nice and paved but my dog was attacked by another dog today that was leashed because it was not controlled by the owner. The trail also seems to go by a water/sewage treatment plant too. I'd try again and would hope for a better experience next time.

I walk my dog about three times a week on this greenway. It is very safe, high trafficked, and paved. Great for children and dog walking.

First to Review

Great for a quick afternoon walk! My wife and I take our two small dogs here a couple times a week, and the trail is always kept in great condition. There is still quite a bit of construction going on as of April 1, 2017, and there are a lot of mosquitoes out this time of year. Overall, this is a nice family and dog friendly place to get some energy out and enjoy the views of the Tennessee river.
