Houses are sparse in Tryon Hills, while trees and green space are plentiful. One side of the neighborhood borders N. Graham Street and becomes a business district, but most of the neighborhood is green and well spread out. Most streets have sidewalks, and the open grassy areas with well-established trees just ask you to walk off the sidewalk and explore the gently hilly tree-filled fields.
Houses tend to be cute and modest, and set back well from the street. Mature trees stand in most yards, and there is plenty of grass to stroll on. Tryon Hills offers an old-fashioned neighborhood strolling experience, where there is plenty of room for people and dogs to stay away from cars.
At the edge of Tryon Hills, Little Sugar Creek cuts through with plenty of forest around it, so if you would like a little natural scenery you can visit the creek.
Sugar Creek cuts through the corner of Tryon Hills so if you are craving more natural settings you can visit the creek. This area of the creek offers a lot of natural shrubbery around the creek. There is no walking trail, but if you and your dog are feeling adventurous, this may be the area for you. Be sure to wear protective clothing and be careful as you go that there is nothing to injure your dog's feet in the thick brush.
Many areas are still in development or are only used part of the year, so if you are seeking a private dog walk and some open grassy ground, head towards the center of the neighborhood to find some less developed spots. These areas tend to be flat, mown, and easy for you and your dog to navigate.
