Ride the Greenway twice per week

Access tot he Greenway is very easy. Greenway is kept quite clean of debris. Biking is made simpler as the paths are clean of grit.

What a beautiful pathway to walk along in beautiful eastern Tennessee! If you have some extra time, a great way to spend an afternoon.

I walk my dog along the greenway, and I see other people walking, jogging, running, biking... the older gentleman who carries a banana is someone I frequently see, in addition to herons, geese, fish, and turtles. It's a shame the southern section of the creek is so disgusting and stagnant, because the greenway itself is gorgeous. UT Gardens at the... More

Very fresh and pleasant in late spring. Water features from World's Fair Park and old-fashioned porch swings here and there.

I walk this trail frequently with my family as it is close to my church and other various things we during the weekend. My only dislikes are the lack of lighting for night strolls and the high speed bikers. We are constantly chanting to the children to stay to the right. Otherwise you will be creamed!

This is a fabulous greenway that generally follows Third Creek through the heart of the city. It has long natural stretches, but also takes you past a great Mexican restaurant with dog-friendly patio, a great playground, public restroom building, the river and UT campus.

A nice biking, walking trail that is not as crowded as others. Stay out of the creeks, there are signs all over that it is contaminated. It does go through some sketchy areas and even though I feel safe I would not recommend women traveling through alone as there have been some recent issues.
