Wolf River Greenway

Over the River and Thru the Woods...

August, 2017 by peggjeff

https://youtu.be/auAbfBf2-9s

This is a very nice and well planned out bike or hike trail. Lots of scenic benches off the path to rest/relax and enjoy the view. A few short bridges, each unique, that cross back and forth over parts of the river. Has a very comforting and cozy feel. Nature and Modern Conservation at its best.

Crossing Big Mississippi River

Wonderful scenic bridge crossing the Mississippi River from Memphis to Arkansas. Bike or walk. Lights up with color at night. Porta Potties and picnic table area at the Arkansas side. Very close to Memphis Beale Street and Hernando de Soto Bridge. An easy trip add to anybody visiting Memphis.

Great Walking Trail

August, 2017 by kinjamyhaz

We walked four miles on this trail. It's nicely shaded in most areas. There is a camera and voice that welcomes you at the end where the rest room is. We look forward to returning and walking a different direction.

Big River Crossing

Great Views of the Big River

March, 2017 by rmheeth

The Big River Crossing is a unique trail. Relatively short (about a mile long), it is a walk/bike trail build on an old bridge over the Mississippi River. I started at the west end in Arkansas where there is a dirt parking lot at the end of the paved road (Dacus Lake Rd.). From the parking lot the trail loops around going up and under the railroad bridge before making a turn to go across the river. The western side is a moderate but steady climb to the top at the middle of the river where it levels out before becoming a very slight drop to the other side in Memphis. At the top, you are just beside the railroad bridge, although separated by a heavy steel grating. The trail surface is perforated steel plating which I would think might be slippery when wet. Also, being high up over the river, you are exposed to the wind.

The day I went, there were barges lined up going up the river as far as the eye could see.

The Big River Crossing is a unique trail with incredible views of Memphis, the river and the Arkansas countryside. I will definitely visit this trail again on my next trip to Memphis.

Kick bikes or foot bikes

January, 2017 by old asa

Looking for trails to use my new Kickbike. It's as if the Kick bikes were designed for rails to trails exploring. http://www.bikemania.biz/catalogsearch/advanced/result/?manufacturer[]=1356

They are completely renovating the old Art Deco Sears into a vibrant business district. Seems a good destination for the Valentine/Greenlaw trail.

Really enjoy this trail. Mostly flat once out of Shelby farms. Inside the farm expect several hills.. just finish Shelby farms make over the park is awesome

Shelby Farms Greenline

Nice asset of Memphis

October, 2016 by tbaileyva

We ride this trail every time we visit our daughter at college. One can make this trail as long or short as one likes since it borders Shelby Farm Park which has other trails. We've found nice places to eat toward mid-town (favorite Cheffie's Cafe) and there's some places along North Germantown Pkwy on the other end. The new section is nice. Looking forward to riding The Big River Crossing over the Mississippi. It was opening the weekend after our last trip.

Shelby Farms Greenline

Should I or shouldn't I? I'm so glad I did

June, 2016 by chia57

I drive from Kansas City, mo. to the Carolinas at least 3 times a year. I decided to take our bikes this year just to ride this trail. My husband thought I was crazy. it's 2 hours out if our way. it meant leaving kc early enough to ride from Tillman to Shelby farms and back before dark. I did my research, this trip is doable. The weather forecast leading up to our trip called for rain that entire week. I lived the next few days watching the weather channel. Monday morning at 4am we loaded up the bikes and headed for Memphis. We arrived to a beautiful, clear sky. The trail did not disappoint, it is gorgeous, well maintained. We saw many walkers, riders, all of them smiled at us. The trail has the right amount of shade trees for a hot day. Shelby Farms Greenline was also a great ride, we saw Bison, the lakes are nice. On the way back to our car it started to rain, we stopped under an overpass where we met a local rider who told us where to go for Memphis BBQ. Once back to our car we met a lady who rides the trail daily but walked today because of the rain. I can't rate this trail without rating the people we met. It was 5 star all around. We will definitely drive the 2 hours out of our way again.

Trail has been extended

May, 2016 by amy.armstrong

This is a great trail. It has been extended. There is an entrance at Cameron Brown Park that goes underneath Wolf River Parkway and follows along the Wolf River. The new section is a lush green paved trail with lots of shade, park benches and wooden bridges. The addition extends the trail approx. 1.5 miles. When you start at Cameron Brown Park and connect to the Shelby Farms Greenline it is 16 miles of paved trails (32 miles round trip).

Shelby Farms Greenline

Who knew?

April, 2016 by snailspaceann

Yes, Memphis has a very nice green-line trail. I go from my house near downtown Memphis to connect with the Greenline at Tillman Street - then it's a very nice 6.5 mile ride out to Shelby farms. It's shady and pretty flat most of the way - really great for an early morning ride! I deducted one star only because you have to stop a couple of times for cross streets. Great trail!

Shelby Farms Greenline

I run here 6 days a week and love it

February, 2016 by seanjuro

I started running just to try and get in better shape but I love running on the greenline and now I run 6 days a week along this beautiful path
Everyone I pass is so friendly and it really inspired me to keep going. I just wish we had more indoor tracks in this city for days when it rains.
