Little Tennessee River Greenway

The Little Tennessee River Greenway in Franklin winds 4.5 quiet, asphalt-paved miles through Franklin near the river. The 13-foot wide path is used for bicycling and hiking and has a children’s park, picnic shelters, benches, an historic bridge and a new, covered bridge. Almost two miles of the trail lie on the old rail bed of the Tallulah Falls Railroad, which carried passengers until 1946. All services ended in 1961. Please see the LTGR website for more details or view the map.

As of November 2012 construction on nearby road and sewer projects has been completed and all sections of the Greenway are back in service.
