The Local Scoop

Salali Lane is one of the less used access points for the Greenway. Depending on where you are coming from within Franklin, this access point is ideal if you're looking to dodge a crowded parking area. We have used this area before when a clothing change was needed (in the car), due to the privacy and lack of other Greenway goers. This area is also at the "mid-way" or 2 mile point in the Greenway. Go Left and over the bridge to access the more private section of the Greenway by passing Tassee Park on your Right. Go Right to access town bridge and Big Bear Park.

The Local Directions

Access Salali Lane by taking the "Highlands Road" out of Dowtown Franklin. This road will take you by East Franklin Shopping center on your Right and a number of shops, businesses, etc and evetually to "Fox Ridge Road" which is immediately past Franklin Flea Market on your Right. Take this road for appox. 0.3 miles following signage to the parking area.
