The APSU Greenway is a project funded by a grant from the Clarksville Montgomery County Community Health Foundation (CMCCHF) and the APSU Sustainable Campus Fee Committee to promote the general health of the APSU campus and surrounding community.

Denton, APSU professor, and CMCCHF board member said. “My wife and I have had the pleasure of walking on this trail on a couple of occasions. I think it’s destined to become one of the more popular walking trails in the area.”
