Riverwalk Greenway is a paved trail in Pigeon Forge. The trail starts at Patriot Park, goes to The Island and further. There are benches, bathrooms and water fountains along the trail. Walkers, runners, baby strollers, bikes, and pets on a leash use this trail. It is open 24 hours and lit at night.
The 4-mile Greenway follows West Prong of Little Pigeon River. After a while you will walk along the riverbank, with geese and herons for company. The trail meanders around attractions on Parkway and Teaster Lane without road crossings. You will pass through The Island, go under Parkway, then the Community Canter and end at the old City Park.
Starting either at the Community Center or at Patriot Park, you could park for free and take the Riverwalk Greenway its whole length. It will take about one and a half hours.
The Riverwalk Greenway connects with the path around Patriot Park, and the hub for the Trolley system. In this area, you can export the Old Mill historic district and shops. Parking here is free and plentiful.
To go north, go to Butler Street. When you get to Ashley Avenue, follow the trail as it loops around and down to the river. This is the best part.
Cross under Jake Thomas Boulevard. You’re now at the LeConte Center.
Go behind the convention center to The Island.
The Island bridges will take you across the river and will go under E. Wears Valley Road and the Parkway. Next is the Community Center and the old City Park.
It’s only four miles between Patriot Park and the Community Center.
Taking a walk on the wild side isn’t at My Bearfoot Cabins. In fact, it’s just the opposite. Take a walk on the calm side with fun and relaxation at the cabins.
