Located alongside the popular Wolf River is the Wolf River Greenway Trail. Mostly shaded with views of Memphis ponds, serene wildlife habitats, and lush timberlands, this recreational artery of asphalt will leave pedestrians in awe. The winding 10-foot wide paved trail is suitable for all interests whether you prefer to cycle, run, hike, or just want to get out there for a stroll. As the Greenway lies parallel to Shelby Farms Park, you can cross Wolf River BLVD to enter Shelby Farms main entrance if you are on the western side of the trail – Where you can extend your daily outings.

Currently, the Greenway Trail in Memphis city limits extends from Walnut Grove Road eastward to Germantown city limits along the southern bank of the Wolf River. City of Germantown has completed from Cameron Brown Park westward to Memphis city limits.  Future additions to the Greenway are in various stages of design and construction. 

What Makes It Great

Throughout the trail, you will find scenic rest areas where you can grab a quick breath. Benches are posted along the banks of the Wolf River—one of the most popular rivers here in Memphis. Kayaks and canoes tend to glide down this river where you can see another popular hobby here around the Mid-South.
