I come here whenever I can. Between the greenway in Forsyth county and the greenway in Alpharetta, I make a 40+ mile loop. It's easy to connect the two greenways via bike lanes on Windward; sidewalks everywhere else. Eventually the two greenways will be connected.

Easy Stroll
Dec 2019 • Couples
Great place for an easy, level stroll. Educational signage is very informative. Flexible distances so you can walk for a few hours or a few minutes. Clean, well maintained restroom facilities.

Clean and DELIGHTFUL
Nov 2019
We stayed with friends close to the Greenway, and decided to walk it. It is delightful. Well maintained, well marked by mile markers, quite a flat surface except after the 9 mile marker or about that location. Then the trail has a few seep places that will take your breath away if you are keeping a strong pace. It has nice signage and lots of benches and trash cans. It is a gem in the neighborhood. Nice variety of scenery too. A nice parking lot and restroom at Bethelview Rd.

Excellent trails- except when it rains too much
Oct 2019
I love using the Zagster bicycles and walking along the trail; however, when it rains, the trails often overflow to the point where the trails have to be closed. I have seen some amazing wildlife, and the parks are usually very well kept and safe.

Walkers be attentive!
Jun 2019
This trail is nicely kept up. It is usually clean of debris. It is situated in the middle of a nice swampy piece of land, so it does tend to flood with heavy rain. When walking on it, keep your eyes open to the fields on the side. You will see many different types of inhabitants of the area. Beautiful birds and deer for example. My only worry is that a walker must be careful of bikers who travel at a much faster pace than I can walk and many do not adhere to the posted bike passing rules of the pathway.

Nature & wildlife, only a quick walk away!
Aug 2019 • Business
A quick walk or bike ride away from Avalon/Alpharetta or Roswell (from the other side), this greenway is welcoming! Enjoy a walk or bike ride in nature, observe wildlife (plenty of deer!), and make a little detour to a nice pub/restaurant on the way back... what a beautiful day!

Weekend exercise
Jul 2019 • Friends
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 :)

Great Place for Bike Riding
Apr 2019 • Solo
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 an even better experience. I have been very impressed overall with Forsyth County's commitment to development of its parks. This is one of the best things about living here.

Love the greenway
May 2019 • Family
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 with kids on bikes. Other than that I really love it!

Kudos to Forsyth county for supporting and expanding the greenway !
Mar 2019 • Family
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.
