This peaceful 5.7 mile paved waterfront trail parallels the western shore of Melton Hill Lake in Oak Ridge and is enjoyed by walkers, runners, cyclists and roller skaters. The greenway skirts Melton Lake as it travels to its terminus at the north face of Haw Ridge Park. Melton Hill Lake is home to the Oak Ridge Rowing team where springtime brings the best rowing teams in the nation to the lake to prepare for the season and compete in the regattas. Along the greenway, Melton Lake Park provides a picnic shelter and playground for families that want to take the greenway to the park.

Rentals: Bikes and Trikkes, SUPS, Kayaks and Pedal Boats can be rented from Adventures Outdoors, 695 Melton Lake Drive, phone: 865-680-1516.
