The Clarksville Greenway is the City's central trail corridor and includes trails North and South of the Red River. Whether you are wanting to get active or take a scenic walk through nature, the Clarksville Greenway offers a wonderful experience for citizens and visitors with views of the river and beautiful forestry. Bike, skate, run or walk the trail, and maybe bring a friend or pet too! Restrooms are available at several trailheads as well as benches and resting areas.

Trailheads

Access points are located at Heritage Park Trailhead, Pollard Road Trailhead, and Mary's Oak Trailhead only in designated areas. The trailhead with the most parking is Heritage Park on Peachers Mill Road.

Native species of plants and animals can be viewed throughout the corridor. The community also benefits from these natural areas as they provide clean air and water, flood storage and protection, reduce erosion as well as offer educational resources. One of the unique features of the trail is the Raymond C. Hand Pass, a 600-foot pedestrian bridge.
