Northwest Knoxville

Victor Ashe Greenway

Directions: From downtown Knoxville, take Western Avenue headed west; after approximately four miles, turn right onto Pleasant Ridge Road; go approximately three miles (before Northwest Middle School) and turn left onto Bradshaw Road; park is on immediate right.

Victor Ashe Greenway is located within Victor Ashe Park and connects to the Northwest Greenway along Green Heron Creek, a tributary of Third Creek. This greenway is a favorite for dog owners and their leashed dogs, as it is adjacent to a public dog park, Dogwood Park. Victor Ashe Greenway also features a leg that connects the park to Pleasant Ridge Greenway along Pleasant Ridge Road. Victor Ashe Park's 1.5 miles of unpaved trails are also a favorite destination for cross-country runners.
