Region: West

In addition to the greenway trail at Melton Hill Park, there are several miles of natural surface trails that make a series of loops around the park. The mowed meadow trail begins north of the swimming beach, paralleling the greenway trail. On your way around, there will be a spur trail to connect to the adjacent loop which heads over to the eastern boat dock, weaving through the meadows in that section. This is a perfect habitat for a variety of birds for those that enjoy birdwatching. From the southern-most parking area past the playground and volleyball court, there is a trail that leads into the forest. This woodsy path skirts along the shoreline, offering several spurs over to the rocky bank of the Clinch River. This trail loops through the woods and offers several return options.
