This place has exactly what is required to have a weekend run or walk. Never overcrowded. You have to be mindful when you have headphones - some of the bicycles are fast :)

Have been using the Greenway regularly with my bicycle since moving to this area 3 years ago. This is a very well-engineered, well-built, and well-maintained walking and biking trail. Looking forward to it eventually being connected from the Halcyon development down to Windward to create...More

I love the Greenway and use it several times per week but you need to be careful. The city doesn’t repair it quite as often as they need to. There are several loose boardwalk pieces as well as some rotted wood. I worry a bit...More

Use this regularly, whether walking, jogging or riding. It easily makes you forget you're in one of the fastest growing counties. Wish some areas were less susceptible to flooding, but overall great trails I've always felt safe on.

Beautiful bike ride on paved, open trails. It's about 9 miles one way, so 18 on the return. Parking lots are good on either side. Off of Old Alabama or off of Mercury Dr. Occasionally see deer, but the only obstacles are families with young...More

The Big Creek Greenway is an exceptional walking, running, biking path accessible in Cumming (other areas as well). The section that is n Cumming is a particularly pleasant stretch and provides a few alternatives for routes and loop lengths that I found most enjoyable. I...More

I love the greenway. I hate running on other park trails that are a mile or less so you end up going basically in circles. On this trail you can go and see as much ( or little) as want.

Awesome ride on a well paved, clean greenway. Kids loved it (7 and 9) and we stopped at one of the parks and let them play on the playground.

I have been all over the US, and to several different countries. The Greenway is one of the best ideas for nature lovers that I have seen. It is a perfect mix of wildlife and exercise. Fantastic for families, friends, or solo trips. It is...More

Not at this point. There is a development underway on McFarland at the trail head that will have a coffee shop when it's complete, but it's pretty far off.
