Oak Ridge

Park at the Elza Gate Park at the corner of Melton Lake Road and Oak Ridge Turnpike. The greenway/bike trail starts at the park and runs 3.5 miles through the Melton Lake Park, marina, and the rowing club to another small parking area almost to Edgemoor Road. Return to the Elza Gate Park. Very scenic views of the park and the lake. Some small hills near the Edgemoor Road end, otherwise very flat. Elza Gate Park is a very shady place to cool down and stretch before/after running. Of course, you can park at the Edgemoor Road end and run the opposite direction. Distance: 7 mile up-and-back.
