Greeneville is a historic town nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains of Northeast Tennessee. Founded in 1783 and settled by several Revolutionary War veterans, it has a long history of involvement in national politics. It was home to a strong abolitionist movement and petitioned to remain part of the Union, though it was ultimately taken over by Confederate forces. Its location makes it a prime spot for setting out to explore the outdoors with your dog. Thousands of acres of national forests and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park are less than an hour's drive away. There are many great parks in Greeneville's city limits, and seven veterinary clinics in town to care for your pup's medical needs.
Perhaps best known for the Ginny Kidwell Amphitheater that hosts outdoor concerts in the summer, Greeneville's Dogwood Park also provides plenty of space for your pup to roam. A walking trail includes a boardwalk around a cattail pond. Mature trees provide shade in the summer and make a beautiful display of color in the fall. You will need to keep your dog on a leash at Dogwood Park and bring your own waste bags and water.
There's something timeless in the air in Greeneville, Tennessee, that will make you want to linger just a little longer here as you run your hand through your dog's soft fur.
Downtown Greeneville is full of dog-friendly surprises. First, you can take your dog to explore the outdoor areas of the Andrew Johnson Historic Site run by the National Park Service. You will need to keep your pup outside of all buildings and on a leash. Close by, you can stop by the Top Dog hot dog stand. Locals celebrate this simple eat-as-you-go fare as the best hot dog in town. If you're looking for a sit-down meal, a few blocks away, you'll find another local favorite: Smokin' Pig BBQ. You can enjoy a classic meal of meat and sides at the outdoor picnic tables with your pup by your side.
Just southwest of downtown, you'll find two of the city's biggest parks. In addition to its namesake memorial, Veterans Memorial Park features manicured open green spaces, a covered picnic area, and a nature trail where you're likely to see other locals taking their dogs for walks. Nearby Hardin Park is especially popular for its pool, but also includes a playground, sports fields and facilities, and a stream and fishing pond where ducks like to congregate. You will need to keep your dog on a leash at these parks and bring your own waste bags and water. If you're hungry after all of your exploring, the nearby Top Choice BBQ offers dog-friendly outdoor seating.
On the far south end of town, the Allen Bridge Road neighborhood abuts another large park: Kinser Park. This park overlooking the Nolichuckey River includes over 100 RV camping sites and a full complex of options for family fun, including putt-putt and golf courses, a swimming pool with a slide, and several playgrounds. In addition to these and numerous other sports facilities, the park offers fishing and hiking opportunities and several walking trails. One trail winds gently uphill to provide beautiful views of the river. You will need to keep your dog on a leash in Kinser Park and bring your own waste bags and water.
College Hills in neighboring Tusculum, Tennessee, lies just north of the Tusculum University campus. It's home to the small town's main public park, Tusculum City Park. With its wide open spaces and grassy fields shaded by mature trees, it's the perfect spot to take your dog for a run. The multi-use Tusculum Trail that winds through the park is a great option for both biking and walking. You will need to keep your dog on a leash and bring your own waste bags and water. Less than a mile from the park, you'll find the Old Oak Taproom, a brewery with outdoor dog-friendly seating and a food menu that includes sandwiches and salads.
In its far southern reaches, Greeneville stretches into the Cherokee National Forest. This pristine wilderness covers hundreds of thousands of acres in several states and is crossed by miles of trails. A great place to start is the hike to Margarette Falls. This relatively easy out-and-back trail is a little under 1.5 miles each way for a total hike of just under three miles. The sixty-foot falls are especially scenic, and the stream along the way offers spots to take a dip on a hot day. The dense forest includes many plants that bloom in the spring and summer. You will need to keep your dog on a leash and on the trail, and bring your own waste bags and water. You'll find the trailhead by following State Route 350 East south of Greeneville to Shelton Mission Road.
