Watch for poison ivy and loose rocks that line the trail.
This trail is perfect for those who don't want to worry about uneven footing and would prefer to enjoy the view.
The Mill Mountain Greenway connects Mill Mountain Park with the Roanoke River Greenway
and ultimately Downtown Roanoke. Visit greenways.org
to learn more about Roanoke's extensive greenway network.
Starting from the Mill Mountain Discovery Center, the trail begins on a paved path before joining the road north out of the park. Switchbacking your way down, take your time and look at the surrounding plant life and small animals in the leaf litter.
The road eventually ends at Walnut Avenue, where the trail continues along the road to cross the Roanoke River and find itself next to the rail lines.
Continue along the path next to Williamson Road to eventually reach Elmwood Park and its characteristic amphitheater. From here, the greenway continues through the urban center to reach Downtown and the Lick Run Greenway
