Shelby Farms Greenline as you traverse the Wolf River wetlands

 

A breakthrough project that sparked a city-wide movement to support trails and greenways, the Shelby Farms Greenline is a 6.7-mile “rails to trails” multi-use path that connects the neighborhoods of East Memphis to Shelby Farms Park. Hop on the Greenline at Shelby Farms, traverse the Wolf River wetlands, pass underneath the I-40 junction, have lunch at Cheffies at High Point Terrace, and end with an espresso at Republic Coffee near Tillman. The 10-foot wide trail is a straight, level ride that makes it a great destination for causal cyclists and a quick commute for residents. The Greenline is open from dawn to dusk and even has its own staff of rangers (watch out for their Segways!).
