Future Plans

The Crossville Greenway

The primary mission of the Friends of the Trails organization is to build hiking trails in Cumberland County. Our priority  is to build a network of natural hiking  trails around the city known as the “Crossville Greenway.”Initially this will be natural dirt trails but, hopefully, over time they will be upgraded to wide multi-purpose paved trails.

This is an overview vision of the project. The map shows the existing and planned trails around the city.

The Crossville Greenway

The planned network of natural trails will circle the cityproviding a green corridor connecting recreational centers.

The Little Obed River Segment

This trail will connect Centennial Park to the Obed River Park.

The Little Obed River Segment

When complete this will provide a leafy corridor along beside the Little Obed River from Centennial Park and Genesis Road all the way to the Obed River Park on Route 70 North.

The existing sections include the Woodlawn Loop and the connection over to Old Jamestown Highway. Also the Plantation Trail and the paved trails in he Obed River Park. Finally there are paved trails around Centennial Park.

The missing links are from Woodlawn Loop to Centennial Park and from Route 127 Main Street to Old Jamestown Highway.
