Family Friendly Easy riding over small roots. Near a public park.

Please don't ride this trail on days after a rain as it does not drain well.

Overview

Easy to get a few miles in or ride for a full day, this ride connects to the Memphis Greenline and the Germantown Greenway for a grand tour of Memphis!

Need to Know

Some ditches hold water, but they have "ride arounds."

Description

You can start this ride at the Germantown Trailhead parking lot off of Germantown Rd or ride in from the Greenline. There are several bypasses along the trail to avoid standing water issues.

This is a fun trail, shared by many runners, families, walkers, etc. Please be ready to say "on your left" a few times. The most central access is available from the parking lot off of Humphreys Blvd. There are bike repair stations available on the Greenline.

Overall, a fun time with a few rooty sections and some small drops. This ride is easy enough for almost anyone, but still fun!
