Driving the greenway train in the Triad is Greensboro, which currently has 32 miles of paved greenway — on its way to a goal of 300, according to Madeline Carey, assistant trails and greenways director for Greensboro P&R. The high point of the system currently is the 7.5-mile Atlantic & Yadkin Greenway, which eventually will extend from Stokesdale on the north to downtown.
The Atlantic & Yadkin will connect with the north end of the 15-mile Bicentennial Greenway being spearheaded by Guilford County Parks & Open Space. A little two miles of that greenway is done on the north end, a little over eight miles is finished to the south, in High Point.
The Triad’s other significant stretch of greenway is in Winston-Salem, the 5-mile Salem Creek/Strollway Trail, which links downtown Winston-Salem with Salem Lake.
