One of the tunnels is flooded and closed off. Still a good bike trail!

Lovely walk. Also combined with the Neyland Greenway. Lots of water fountains to play in. We visited the Worlds Fair Park. Not well marked.

On a visit to Knoxville in April 2012, I combined part of the Neyland Greenway with the James White Greenway for a nice long walk to burn off some calories after a great meal at Calhoun's On The River. I would recommend both (the greenways and the restaurant). Lots of views of the Tennessee River.

I rode the Greenway as part of a trip that started with the Third Creek Greenway. It's pretty good as long as you don't get nervous riding by a busy road for part of the trip. It has several nice areas beside the river and Volunteer Landing is nice too with the fountains and waterfalls. It's not as well marked as it should be and signs in one area lead me to believe that I could reconnect with Third Creek Greenway from the Worlds Fair Park trail. This lead me to be momentarily lost in the maze that is UT Campus. Fortunately if you can see the river it is easy to get back on track.
