  • The Greenway is such a great place to go for a run, walk, bike ride. So wide and flat for the most part. Going through the marsh lands is super cool. Lots of things to look at. Love how much they've invested in the infrastructure for the Greenway and hope it continues as it has been for the past few years.
  • Closed at dusk. Swept daily. Clean, attractive, natural environment.
  • This is one of the best kept secrets for nature lovers, walkers, runners and bikers alike. The upper most point of the trail starts at Webb Bridge Road and following it south will take you all the way down to Old Alabama Road just off of Holcomb Bridge in Roswell. If you follow the entire trail up and back it is more than 20 miles! The trail will take you past protected wetlands, open fields and covered canopies of old and young growth pines and deciduous trees. The trail is typically not very busy during the cooler season, but this is probably the best time to go and see the trees change color from vibrant greens to orange, red, yellow and browns. There are several places to stop and rest, but bring plenty of water during the warm months as there are few places to stop and get water, but about halfway there is a facilities (M/W restrooms), water fountain, a few picnic tables and about 30 parking spaces. The stopping station is near the YMCA at North Point. There are ponds to see indigenous water fowl of Georgia as well as muskrat, beaver and even some deer during certain times of the day. You're more likely to see the deer walking in the wetlands area as there is plenty of food for them to eat, but please do NOT feed the animals. They need to remain timid around humans for their own safety and protection, not to mention your safety too. The trail is fairly wide along most of the trail and is paved from end to end so you can ride this with either a road or gentle rider touring bike. Kids will like it too as there are very few hills to deal with for the most part but if they get tired you can always walk. Stay on the trails as there is no off-road mountain biking in the parkway. You can easily make a whole day excursion on the Greenway, you can either pack a picnic lunch or take one of the many side trails that will take you to places like North Point Mall. I prefer the picnic idea, a backpack with a small blanket, bottle of wine and some munchies. Enjoy the sun in one of the open fields and really soak up some local nature. You'll think that you're in the North Georgia Mountains, but just 12 miles north of the perimeter (I-285). Enjoy! Happy Travels and Safe Biking!
  • Nice to visit for nature lover and close to nature.
  • Love walking and biking the Greenway!
