Walk, run, cycle, skate or scoot — our greenways wind along natural features like streams, rivers, ridges and open spaces. Greenways protect valuable green space for conservation and recreation – they connect neighborhoods to schools, offices, shopping areas, parks and other natural areas providing a recreational and alternate mode of transportation. Knoxville’s greenway system plus the many loops and walking trails within our city and county parks, boasts over 100 miles of paved greenways with neighboring counties offering additional miles. There are over 15 miles of paved greenways winding through the cities of Alcoa and Maryville, and the City of Oak Ridge has around 90 miles of greenways.
Our listings for greenways include hard surfaced (paved or concrete) paths and walking trails. The natural surface trails are listed under Trails.
