The Dunnavant Valley Greenway trail runs approximately 1.5 miles along Yellow Leaf Creek. The trail is accessible from either the Sports Blast fields adjacent to US-280 or a gravel parking area located on Hwy 41.

Yellow Leaf Creek has water year round but is mainly feed from rainfall. The trail is covered with pines as well as a good variety of hardwoods.

There are many points were a stream comes close to the trail for some fun wading and pictures. The trail passes numerous small waterfalls and rapids and it flows towards US-280. These falls are not large, they are a great place for a photo or to sit and rest along the route. Several sandbars can also be found along the path.

The path varies between sand, small stone and large rocks. Difficulty level for the trail is easy, except for a few areas to scale a few rocks and tree roots. This trail is rather flat, but is a great running trail for those who want to avoid the pavement of Hwy 41.

Vegetation is located throughout the trail for its entirety during the late spring and summer. With the foliage decreased during the fall and winter, hikers can see various rock formations and rock gardens adjacent to the path.
