Wolf River Refuge Trailhead

S Walnut Bend Rd, Memphis, TN 38120, United States

 

Wolf River Trails from Walnut Grove Road is an 11.9 km moderately-traveled loop trail located near Germantown, Tennessee, which features a river and is good for all ability levels. The trail provides a range of activities and is open throughout the year. Dogs are also allowed to use this trail, but they must be kept on leash.

The spring-fed Wolf River rises in the north of Mississippi and flows northwest through the counties of Fayette and Shelby to join the Mississippi River at Memphis. Sculpting a green passage across some 100 miles of trees, farms, and villages, the Wolf's upper reaches are lush wetlands of unmatched natural beauty that help to refresh or drink water aquifers. The lower stretches include refuges in the floodplain forest in the heart of Memphis. The Wolf River is vitally important for the safety of our drinking water and the provision of excellent leisure and educational opportunities. The Wolf River is a natural treasure for all of us.

Pleasant trail all year round. Can make an 8-mile loop, a 4-mile loop, or a shorter loop with a back and forth. Most of the bikers on the Walnut Grove trail.  NOTE: There are no garbage cans at the trailhead. Please be careful of your garbage and clean it up while you use the trails.

 

The Wolf River Conservancy 

The Wolf River Conservancy is committed to the conservation and improvement of the Wolf River and its watershed as a sustainable natural resource. In 1985, the Wolf River Conservancy was established as a non-profit local land trust in order to conserve the lands along the Wolf River as a public natural resource.

A land trust is a non-profit entity that, as a whole or part of its mission, is actively engaged in the protection of land by undertaking or assisting in the acquisition or conservation of land, or in the stewardship of certain land or easements. Land trusts collaborate with landowners and the community to protect land by receiving donations of land, buying land, negotiating private, cooperative land management agreements, and managing conserved land over the coming generations. Conservancy goes beyond the conventional functions of land trust by educating young people and the public, engaging the community through the Wolf River Greenway, and offering guided paddle trips.

What they're doing:

  • Protecting habitat in the Wolf River watershed.
  • Leading the Wolf River Greenway project along the Wolf Municipalities.
  • Link people of all ages to the Wolf River through education.
  • Providing excellent leisure opportunities for our community.
