The Aldridge Creek Greenway is one of the most popular places to run in the Huntsville area. The paved multi-use path runs from Willow Park (7.5 miles south of downtown Huntsville) south to Ditto Landing on the Tennessee River. There, the trail continues as the Tennessee River Greenway for another 1.5 miles along the river. The Greenway is a pleasant trail, with lots of tree shade, several parks, and views of the creek.
