Cyclists take a new perspective of the Wolf River on the trails near Collierville

A popular destination for equestrian activities and off-road biking, the Wolf River Environmental Greenway features a scenic eight-mile loop of mixed-use gravel trails and access roads, a steel truss pedestrian bridge and two parking areas on more than 1,000 acres of protected lands. Administered by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and co-sponsored by Shelby County and the Chickasaw Basin Authority, the Greenway began in 1994 with the Wolf River Reconnaissance Study. The goals of this project were to provide flood protection and mitigation, aquifer protection and infrastructure protection. The green infrastructure features and mixed-use trails, opened to the public in October 2008.
