Kingsport Greenbelt

The Kingsport Greenbelt offers eight miles of (mostly) paved pathways through downtown Kingsport (see map). The section on the east side of town is mostly a shaded, woodland walk (above) - The easiest places to park and begin your walk are at the Exchange Place, an old historic farm on Orebank Road -- or behind Petsmart on Eastman Road. The western section provides a beautiful river walk -- as it follows the South Fork of the Holston River to the end of the Greenbelt near the Rotherwood Mansion. To enjoy this section stop at the numerous parks and pulloffs located along Netherland Inn Road. More pics here.
