The Future Knox/Blount Greenway
The yellow line depicts the future greenway.

The initial phase of the Knox/Blount Greenway will connect Neyland Greenway via a pedestrian bridge on the "Buck" Karnes Bridge (crossing the Tennessee River) and continuing along the bank of the Tennessee River through the University of Tennessee's Cherokee Farm Innovation Campus. The first phase will end at Marine Park on Alcoa Hwy.

Future plans call for the Knox/Blount Greenway to connect to the Alcoa-Maryville combined greenway system and eventually through Townsend to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
