Greensboro | Atlantic & Yadkin Greenway

7.5 miles

The Atlantic & Yadkin Greenway currently starts on Markand Drive and runs north-northwest parallel to Battleground Avenue past Country Park, the Guilford Courthouse National Military Park and Greensboro’s watershed lakes area, including Bur-Mil Park. The watershed lakes trails — Wild Turkey, Owl’s Roost, Reedy Fork — are especially popular with mountain bikers. Currently, the greenway ends just above Strawberry Road, but Madeleine Carey, assistant trails and greenways director with Greensboro Parks & Recreation, says it eventually will extend four miles north into Stokesdale. On the south end, the trail will extend into downtown Greensboro.

At Old Battleground Avenue and Lake Brandt Road, is the northern end of the Bicentennial Greenway. Eventually, the Bicentennial Greenway will run south for 15 miles to High Point’s City Lake. At present, the trail runs 2.5 miles (primarily along Drawbridge Parkway). Find out about the High Point end here.
