Hiking along the Wolf River
Piperton has endorsed the regional GreenPrint project that includes a goal of connecting communities along the Wolf River all the way from the Mississippi River into Fayette County. There are already miles of hiking and biking trails along the River west of Piperton in the communities of Collierville and Germantown and future plans to extend the trails along the Wolf River through Piperton. This will be a long term project, but planning has already begun to lay out a proposed route and find the necessary funding.
Hunting in Wildlife Management Area
