First time we went there was a lot of litter. Second time it was much cleaner, but I still don't know if I would go swimming here.

This was a good trail, I will do it again for the challenge/fitness of it. However, the level was not marked correctly. Alltrails reflects this as EASY trail; this was definitely not easy, moderate to say the least. It was challenging, which I liked, but I was expecting EASY. I feel Alltrails should change to moderate. Additionally, we came upon bikers on the "non bikers only" path. No big deal, but another detail that should be mentioned about the trail. It is a very narrow trail, cannot walk side by side, so when a biker comes, it was a lil unnerving.

It was a good trail. My 8 year old son was able to do it. There are a couple of places where the view is good. The trials are in good shape. We hiked the upper and middle trails

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.

Nice Greenway, one of my favorites. As of 5-3-17 there is a reroute near the beginning of the west end. The reroute takes you in front of the UT Sports Complex on the sidewalk on Sutherland Ave and you turn south before you get to West High School to get back on the Greenway. The rest of the trip is pretty smooth except for the occasional bump or crack in the pavement. Tyson park looked great, the creek was clear and hardly any litter. They have completed a lot of work on the trail since I rode it last year. The new construction is nice. All in all a great ride!
