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

Really quaint little walking area. Some of it is paved and some is a mulch pathway, but you can choose many routes to walk along. The creek and bridges are really fun for toddlers- definitely a good toddler “trail.”

Not bad crowded nice day for a walk

I live close by and run this with my dogs regularly. Love the wide, paved trails.

I walk this trail daily on my lunch break. It’s an easy walk, most of the time it’s peaceful, and the park is well taken care of

It’s a paved easy path so is what it is. Could be pretty but it is polluted with trash. If you live nearby it serves its purpose but wouldn’t go out of your way to walk here. I travel here for work and it is 6 min from my hotel so thought I would check it out vs a treadmill. Not worth the drive really.

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

I don’t know if I would call this a loop because it branches off in other greenways. This is one of my favorites though due to being so close to home and UT. It’s fairly easy to find off Alcoa Hwy but traffic can get bad. The trails itself offers a variety of scenes which makes for a great ride on your bike.

Beautiful park.
A beautiful park that is maintained and well-maintained. You can walk a shady trail in hot weather. There are also benches and trash cans here and there.

Nice paved greenway. Nothing special, but never crowded and everyone is friendly.

The concrete trail is wide and in great repair! It had been raining hard for several days before I hiked the trail and there were no wet or muddy spots and that is huge for me. So why only three stars? Users are trashing the trail. There was nothing scenic about the trail. Finally, i was with the family and after a mile we turned around because there were no benches to let the little ones rest and we were worried we’d have to carry them if we got too far in.

We stopped at the nearby Publix and then went to the park for a picnic. There was a covered pavilion with picnic tables. This was a perfect spot to get out of the car with the kids on a road trip.

nice shaded easy walk.

Paved pathways get very slick after rain. Otherwise great walk with minimal elevation and friendly people.

Mud covered trails, very slippery and dangerous.

Nice paved walk. Well-maintained park. Some parts are hilly. Lots of interesting historic information to read.

Well-maintained paved trail. Gradual inclines near the bridge and the UT buildings. Not a difficult short run, but multiple laps or runs above 8 miles probably deserves a moderate rating. People I came across seemed very friendly.

Mainly paved, very little elevation change (except at the ends where it’s about 20 to 30 feet), nice scenery, many park benches, many nice people on the trail and some of the people bring their pets who are usually friendly.

Great little hidden gem with lots of creek ways and wooded views to enjoy. Primarily paved but there are a couple of little short 1 minute trails that loop back to the paved area for a nice but brief change of pace. Well maintained and clean. Almost completely flat with only one very mild short hill. Just a tiny bit wet the day after a rain but it is a wetland after all.

This is an EASY trail. It's not a "Moderate" trail. It really isn't even a trail as it is almost completely paved. The incline is gradual, and I didn't feel even a tiny bit taxed to walked the whole path.

The parking lot is large but a little uncomfortable to get out of since traffic is moving at 50mph+ and curving with sight-lines impeded. The path has some nice views of beautiful houses, the lake, and some nice UT buildings.
It's very clean. I believe the UT golf team trains next to it. The other people I met on the trail were very friendly.

Gets pretty muddy after rain, but a really beautiful escape in the middle of town.
