Wolf River Greenway
Currently, this 10ft-by-12ft paved pedestrian & cycling trail runs 2.6 miles along the Wolf River from Walnut Grove Rd to the start of the Germantown Greenway. But the Wolf River Conservancy has plans to extend the trail 36 miles over the next several years, following the path of the river from Collierville to the northern end of Mud Island, where it flows into the Mississippi. The existing stretch of the greenway features lush trees, great views of the muddy Wolf, and plenty of wildlife. The Wolf River Greenway blends seamlessly into the Germantown Greenway, so those out for a long run have plenty of pathway.
This 11-mile paved path picks up where the Wolf River Greenway ends, taking runners and cyclists through a wooded portion of suburban Germantown. It runs through several parks -- Neshoba, Johnson Road, and Houston Levee -- and links area schools and neighborhoods. Runners can pause for a short breather at Turtle Bayou, a rustic boardwalk over the Wolf River where trail users can watch turtles sunning themselves on fallen logs. Eventually, the city of Germantown plans to expand this greenway to 22 miles.
